Peer Review Policy

The CEA Critic publishes scholarly articles that read closely the variety of texts that English professors study and teach. The CEA Critic celebrates the importance of literary criticism from a variety of approaches and the value of reading and teaching familiar and unfamiliar literary works. We are also interested in articles that consider pedagogy from a theoretical perspective or engage issues pertinent to all aspects of rhetoric and composition. Submissions will undergo a double-blind review by members of the Editorial Board or other qualified reviewers. The editors reserve the right to reject submissions that they consider inappropriate for The CEA Critic without sending them out for review. Please note that we are unable to offer substantive comments on submissions that do not pass our first round of review. The normal review process of the journal takes between two to six months to complete, though there may be slight delays if the review period overlaps with Summer or Winter break.
