QED employs a double-anonymous peer-review system for all scholarly article submissions. To ensure anonymity, there should be no identifying information in the submitted Word document.
All manuscripts submitted for publication must be original work that has not been published previously and is not currently under consideration by any other publication. All contributions will be peer reviewed by QED Editorial Board members and external reviewers. Response time is typically three months from date of submission. Contributions are accepted on a rolling basis. Authors must be willing to respond to reviewers’ comments, make revisions, and review page proofs in a timely manner. A tentative schedule will be provided at time of submission acceptance.
