Editorial Process

On this page, you will find a complete description of our editorial process, from article submission through to publication. This process takes a minimum of four months.

STEP 1 - Article Submission

When a full article is submitted, it is immediately reviewed by the Managing Editor. Because CAPjournal only publishes twice per year, these edited articles will wait in a pool for eventual selection.

STEP 2 - Formulate Editorial Board

About three months before an issue is slated to be published, we will form the Editorial Board. Once formed, we will select 5-8 articles for publication in the issue and propose these to the Board. When all members of the Board agree on the alignment for the issue, we can proceed to the next step.

STEP 3 - Edits

Each article will be assigned to one or two members of the Editorial Board for review. If an article was submitted for peer review, then it will additionally be edited by at least two peer reviewers. See the Peer Review Process page on our website for more information.

STEP 4 - Author Review

After all editors have reviewed their articles, the Managing Editor will compile all edits and suggestions into a single document, which is then sent to the author for review. After receiving this document, the author will have two weeks to make any changes to the manuscript.

STEP 5 - Draft Approval

The author-revised draft will then be sent to all editors who worked on the article for final approval.

STEP 6 - Prepare for Publication

After the final version of the manuscript has been approved, the article will then be sent to a designer for publication layout. This layout will be checked and approved by the author, the Editorial Board and the Executive Editor prior to final publication.

The Editorial Team reserves the right to reject any article or request more edits on an article that does not meet its standards for quality.
