Journal18 publishes articles in themed issues twice a year. Notices for upcoming issues are posted in Future Issues along with information regarding submission deadlines. Journal18 also publishes short pieces in Notes & Queries throughout the year. If you would like to contribute to an issue or to Notes & Queries, please follow the Submission Process outlined below.
Journal18 is an open-access journal and does not have any publication charges or subscription fees. However authors are responsible for securing permission to reproduce any material subject to copyright and also for paying any costs related to copyright clearance.
To preserve rigorous academic standards and to ensure the highest quality content, all articles published in Journal18 are subject to a double-blind peer-review process. As such, all manuscripts submitted for consideration must have the author’s name and all other identifying elements removed from the text.
Manuscripts are initially reviewed by the editorial committee to assess their academic quality and suitability for the issue. Manuscripts that successfully meet the criteria of this first stage are then submitted for peer-review to be assessed by two specialist readers. Peer-review reports are considered by the editorial committee who discuss the reviewers’ comments and recommendations before passing reports on to the author. Final decisions regarding the publication of articles are made by the editorial committee and will be communicated to authors in writing.
