Policies for Bridges: Conversations in Global Politics
Bridges: Conversations in Global Politics Review Policy
Bridges: Conversations in Global Politics operates a rigorous double blind review process, meaning that the identities of both the author(s) and reviewers are always concealed from one another. Video submissions will be screened by the editors and will remain unlinked until after the blind peer review process. All submissions are screened by the editors to determine whether or not they should be sent for external review. If your paper is deemed unsuitable for the journal, it will be returned to you without being sent to review. Once it has been determined that a submission is to be sent to review it will be assigned to three independent reviewers. Reviewers are chosen on the basis of their familiarity with the subject matter of your paper as well as their availability for completing the review within the allotted time. We endeavor to complete the review process within 2-3 months, although occasionally this can take longer. We regret any delays that authors may experience during the course of the review process, as these are often out of our control.
Bridges: Conversations in Global Politics asks its referees to evaluate manuscripts based on the following criteria:
- Whether it fits within the aims and scope of the journal
- Whether it represents an accessible and valuable contribution to conversations in global politics (in terms of synthesis; summary; debate; discussion or analysis of approaches, concepts, ideas or personalities in global politics and public policy)
- Whether it is accessible to both a high level undergraduate and scholarly audience.
