Editorial process

All manuscripts submitted to JMCM are initially reviewed by one of the Editors. At this stage manuscripts may be rejected without peer review if they are not of high enough priority or out of the scope of the journal. Manuscripts that are not immediately rejected undergo peer review. When your submission is received, you will receive notification by email. The editorial process below applies to all types of articles.
