The Hopkins Press Journals Ethics and Malpractice Statement can be found at the ethics-and-malpractice page.
The Journal of Colonialism and Colonial History operates a double blind peer review process. All contributions will be initially assessed by the editor for their originality and suitability for the journal. Papers deemed suitable will then be sent to a minimum of two independent expert reviewers to assess the quality of the paper. This process usually takes 3 months. The Editor is responsible for the final decision regarding acceptance or rejection of articles based on these reviews. The Editor's decision is final.
Reviewers are asked to consider the following areas in their reports: General structure and organization of the submission, the coherence and general flow of ideas, the sources used and their interpretation, and the articles contribution and originality.
If an author is invited to revise and resubmit their article following the peer review process the editor will make the final decision regarding its acceptance (or query where changes are not made or explained). There is no time limit for the revision process as articles are published in strict order of acceptance. Accepted articles are sent to the copyeditor 2 months prior to publication.

PLEASE NOTE: THE JOURNAL OF COLONIALISM AND COLONIAL HISTORY DOES NOT ACCEPT UNSOLICITED REVIEWS OR REVIEW ESSAYS.
Among the features we expect a review to have are an explanation of the basic argument of the book (or books) under consideration, an assessment of its strengths and weaknesses, and a discussion of how the book fits in the scholarly literatures it addresses. Given the large geographical scope of the journal, we hope that you might gesture toward comparative colonial contexts and historiographies.
The guidelines for submission are as follows:
University of California, Berkeley
Book reviews should adhere to either the University of Chicago’s Manual of Style, thus relying on endnotes. Please follow the guidelines at: http://www.chicagomanualofstyle.org/tools_citationguide.html (click ‘notes and bibliography’ tab). For example: Maurice Boucher, French Speakers at the Cape (Pretoria: University of Pretoria Press, 1981) 109. Please see the style guide here for further information.
Please keep within the assigned word limit. Quotations should be short and accompanied by page numbers, in the format “(110)”. If you refer to other scholars or historical figures, please include complete names. If you refer to scholarly works other than the book under review please provide a full footnote.
