Peer Review Process

  • All articles submitted to the RoSS will undergo a peer review process: this is a critical element of scholarly publication in ensuring the appropriateness and quality of research. The review process will be conducted confidentially and anonymously. Recommendations from the reviewers will be provided to the author. Editors will use review recommendations in making decisions on the publication of any manuscript.
  • Manuscripts should be original work and must not be submitted elsewhere whilst under consideration by the RoSS. Only contributions that have not already appeared in print can be accepted. If the article is accepted for publication it should not be reproduced elsewhere without the written permission of RoSS.
  • Authors will be required to sign a License Form for papers accepted for publication. Signature of the licence is a condition of publication. An appropriate form will be supplied by the editorial office.
  • Each author has full responsibility for their work. The publisher, Review of Social Studies (RoSS) and the Editors of this journal cannot be held responsible for errors or any consequences arising from the use of information contained in this journal.
