Peer Review Policy

SubStance seeks to publish original work, which should not be under consideration at another journal. For our submission policy, please see our Guidelines for Contributors. In addition, please note that articles written in French will be considered for review, but need to be translated to English should they be accepted.

Translations of work published in a language other than English are occasionally published if they make important contributions to fields of interest of the journal.

All submitted articles are subject to blind peer review by our editors. Our review process can take up to six months. If we ask for revision, revised and resubmitted articles are reassessed within approximately one month. Publication timetable depends on space, but is usually within one year of acceptance. We publish three issues per year, in Spring, Summer, and Fall.
