Manuscript receipt is acknowledged by an automated email. (Please check your spam folder if you do not receive an automated email after you submit). After initial review by the editors, strong manuscripts will be submitted for blind review and read by at least two external readers. The editors will keep authors informed of their manuscript status and will provide feedback even to those essays that we decline to send out for peer review. Please take a look at our WCJ Review Form; it gives a sense of what we ask our reviewers to read for and what we want WCJ manuscripts to accomplish. If you do not hear about the status of your manuscript within twelve to fourteen weeks, please contact us at
