The quality of this journal is secured in a double blind review process with two reviewers from two different Nordic countries.
When asked to be a Referee for an article submitted to this journal, the title and an abstract of the article and a suggested deadline will be provided.
If this task is accepted by the Referee, the Journal manager will send the article (in anonymous form) + a Referee Form with indication of the deadline for the return of the review to the Referee.
The Referee Form can be seen in this link. Normally the deadline for the review is 1 month.
The Journal wants to emphasize, that reviews should take a constructive approach to its points of criticism in order to facilitate dialogue and development of the texts.
The Referee is asked to number each element of the review in order to facilitate the dialogue between author(s), Editor and Referees about revisions etc. Likewise it is important that the arguments in the review are specified. All reviews must be provided in English.
Please use Word-documents for your reviews and comments (and not PDF-files). Reviews are sent to the Journal manager, using the Referee Form. Hereafter they are forwarded to the Editor of the article.
The Editor communicates his or her remarks and propositions + the reviews to the author(s), and sets a deadline for the return of a revised version (if a revision is called for).
If a revised version is being made, the author is asked to comment upon the remarks and propositions from Referees and Editor with reference to the numbering of the elements of the reviews.
The Editor can decide that a second round of reviews is necessary after revision of the article, normally with a deadline of 14 days.
(In the Referee Form the Referee has had the opportunity to inmdicate that he or she is willing to review the article again after revision upon request of the Editor).
When an article has finally been approved - or refused - the Referees will receive a notification of this + a copy of all reviews of the article and the Editor's comments.
At the end of the year (starting at the end of 2012) a list of the 1referees that have contributed to the journal will be published here on the website.
