Submission & Review Procedures

Review Procedure

Manuscript proposals are submitted via this website for consideration. The editorial board will first judge whether the manuscript fits with the scholarly or practitioner focus of the journals. If accepted for consideration, the manuscript is sent out for double-blind peer review to two reviewers. The reviewers assess the manuscript using a structured rubric that measures the strengths and weaknesses of the manuscript, its overall contribution, and recommendation for publication. Reviewers are also asked to provide free response comments . The editorial board then decides whether the manuscript should be: (1) unconditionally accepted, (2) accepted with revision, or (3) rejected. The Cambria Institute endeavors to complete peer review within 1-2 months although it does not warrant this in all cases. Multiple submission are not allowed for the first 30 days of submission.

Plagiarism and Self-Plagiarism

The editorial board may request access to data or other information to verify results or confirm ownership rights of the manuscript. The Cambria Institute reserves the right to publicly remove an article from publication and distribution and withdraw membership benefits if plagiarism or self-plagiarism is discovered. Given that authors own copyright and are free to publish derivative research based on past research efforts, authors must be careful to cite their own past research and not replicate it.
