Review Process

The JILIR is a peer-reviewed scholarly journal that seeks to develop interdisciplinary discourse at the nexus of these two dynamic disciplines. Submissions from academics, practitioners, and students are welcome. All articles and other submissions are carefully considered and anonymously reviewed by academics, graduate, and professional students in the relevant field. The various stages of review include consideration by Associate Editors, a vote by members of our Senior Board, a citations check, and external peer review. Editorial decisions at the Journal are conditional upon peer reviews. We notify authors of our decisions by email.
