Global Labour Journal Review Policy

Global Labour Journal operates a rigorous double blind review process, meaning that the identities of both the author(s) and reviewers are always concealed from one another. 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 two 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 endeavour 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.

Global Labour Journal asks its referees to evaluate manuscripts based on the following criteria:

  1. Whether it fits within the aims and scope of the journal
  2. Whether it represents a valuable new contribution to the scholarly literature (in terms of analysis/methodology; new empirical data; and/or innovative synthesis or elaboration of existing data)
  3. Whether it is accessible to both a scholarly and policy-making audience.
