Review Process

Submissions to the Atlas undergo a three-step review process. All submissions are anonymized before they undergo this process.

  1. Assessment of Arguments. All submissions will be reviewed and evaluated by the Editorial Board for the strength of their arguments and supporting evidence. Submissions that will be considered for publication move to the next step of our review process. 
  2. Faculty Review. Potential submissions for publication are sent to our Faculty Reviewers, where they are assessed for their accuracy and relevance to their topic field. 
  3. Peer Editing. Submissions are sent back to the Editorial Board with Faculty recommendations. On top of Faculty recommendations, submissions will be undergo a peer editing process. The proposed changes to the submissions are sent back to the author for approval. Editors will be working closely with authors on their work before it is submitted to the Editors-in-Chief for publication.
