Pre-Peer Review Program
The Pre-Peer Review Program provides authors who may be new to the profession or academic writing with the opportunity to receive feedback on their writing before formally submitting their article to an academic journal. We pair a potential author or authors with a member of our editorial advisory team whose research and interests most closely align with their work. Over the course of three months, the editorial advisory board member consults with the author or authors, offering them a mock-review of their article and guiding them through the revision process. Once complete, the author or authors may submit their article to JLOE or another journal of their choice. Please note that participation in the program does not guarantee publication, either in JLOE or any other academic journal.
