Peer Review Policy

Theory & Event is a journal of political theory with an international editorial board, authors, and readership. It welcomes theoretical interventions, interpretations, and engagements with political events, institutions, cultures, and issues as they unfold. It provides a forum attractive to intellectuals who work at intersections of political theory, cultural theory, political economy, aesthetics, philosophy, and the arts. 

Each article submitted to Theory & Event will receive a preliminary review by the Journal’s co-editors. The co-editors will then decide whether to send the submission out for review to an outside referee, a coordinating editor, or an advising editor. If articles are selected for review, they will be done so through a double-blind process with the goal of returning reviews within twelve weeks. Reviewers are drawn from an international network of political theorists, philosophers, cultural theorists, social theorists, and anthropologists, as well as freelance intellectuals, artists, and activists. Articles for review are either accepted, rejected, or preliminarily accepted pending revisions. Accepted and revised articles are then reviewed by the co-editors, who make all final decisions on publication. Conference panels, symposia, and special issues are also considered and reviewed similarly.
