Manuscript receipt is acknowledged by email. After initial review by the editors (typically within 4-8 weeks), strong manuscripts will be submitted for blind review 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.
