Editorial Process and Editorial Cut-off dates for WES Journals 2024

Editorial Process

We are keen to ensure that any articles we publish in the WES Journal have been through our editorial process.

Currently, this consists of the following steps:

  • Article(s) submitted to Editor – initial copy editing carried out by Editor for spelling, grammar and clarity. If necessary, Editor will go back to contributor with any queries at this stage
  • Article(s) submitted to internal WES Proof-reading team. Queries raised will be discussed with contributor
  • Where appropriate or possible, fact-checking will take place with appropriate “experts” in the field
  • When article(s) are ready for submission to the WES Journal Designer, article proof(s) will be sent to contributor for approval and final sign-off

It is important, therefore, that time is allowed for the editorial process to take place which is why editorial cut-off dates are necessary. If further time is needed to work on an article, the Editor will discuss with the contributor whether it could be held over for inclusion in a future Journal, or, if long, be split up over more than one Journal.
