Peer Review Process

CONCEPT is a graduate student-run publication. Given the breadth of the Graduate Programs in the College of Arts and Sciences, to ensure fair review of submissions it is vitally important to have editors and reviewers representing as many disciplines as possible. Each submission is reviewed by, at minimum, two peers reviewers, a graduate student editor and a faculty editor. Each reviewers is asked to review between 2 and 5 submissions, and the typical time scheduled for review is 3 to 5 weeks.
