Reviewing Process

Each paper submitted to the Administrative Issues Journal is subject to the following review procedures:

  1. It is reviewed by the Editor for general suitability for this publication.
  2. If it is judged suitable the paper is then subject to a blind review process. At least two reviewers are matched to the paper based on expertise or interest in the subject and provide feedback and recommendations for publishing.
  3. Expertise in methodology will also be used as a matching method. For instance, the goal will be to have reviewers with expertise in qualitative methods review qualitative research. Expertise is defined by: subject, category, and methodology.
  4. All articles submitted are given a code number and that number is used for all discussion of the paper. The code has a digit that indicates the originating university. No article is reviewed at the university where the author teaches. For example no article submitted by SWOSU faculty will be reviewed by SWOSU faculty.
  5. If your paper has already been through the AIJ review process and was given a revise and resubmit, we will take the previous reviewer’s comments and send them, with the manuscript, to a new reviewer.  The new reviewers will be instructed to base their recommendations on how well the previous reviewer’s comments were addressed.
  6. Once papers have gone through the peer review process, those receiving publish recommendations are submitted to a double-blind review from the Editorial Board. The board reviews the papers for sound methodology and structure. Final recommendations will be then be determined based on the peer review and the Editorial Board review.

Articles submitted to the journal should be original contributions and should not have been published elsewhere. Manuscripts may be submitted simultaneously to other journals provided that the AIJ is so advised, and that the author(s) inform the Editor in Chief immediately if the work is published or accepted for publication elsewhere. Always attribute clearly using either indented text or quote marks as well as making use of the preferred APA style of formatting. Authors submitting articles for publication warrant that the work is not an infringement of any existing copyright and will indemnify the publisher against any breach of such warranty. For ease of dissemination and to ensure proper policing of use, papers and contributions become the legal copyright of the publisher unless otherwise agreed.
