Peer Review Process

All manuscripts are reviewed by an editor and members of the Editorial Board or qualified external reviewers. Decisions will be made as rapidly as possible, and the journal strives to return reviewers’ comments to authors within 3 weeks. The editorial board will be available to provide mentorship to budding scholars who have specialized stories of importance and who have not been able to communicate them well enough. It is the goal of the LPJAES to publish manuscripts within 8 weeks after submission.
