Peer Review Policy

The preliminary review for Digital Philology begins with the editor reviewing the submission to determine suitability for the journal, originality and importance of contribution to Medieval Studies, and adherence to a minimum standard of quality. The editor may turn to board members or qualified reader to assist in this initial review. Thereafter, articles are subject to a double-blind review by two readers. As regards Special Issues, the general practice is to solicit referees to review the issue as a whole. Thereafter, authors in both special and regular issues are asked to make revisions in four to twelve weeks’ time, depending on the extent of changes needed. If revisions are minor, the editor alone will reread and confirm changes before proceeding with publication. If a submission needs to be revised and resubmitted, one of the initial referees will be asked to review the new version. The timetable to publication varies as to whether speaking of a guest-edited issue or an individual article, but the goal is for publication to occur within one year of acceptance.
