NSLJ’s editors work collaboratively with one another, and with you, the author, to refine, clarify, and polish your piece. The journal’s Articles Editors will review your piece for organization, tone, grammar, and word choice. They will also highlight any counterarguments you did not address, any additional background that would aid a reader in understanding your argument, and any other issues or ambiguities present in the piece. These suggestions will be collated in a working draft that is then returned to you for approval or revision. Once you approve those substantive edits, the piece will go to NSLJ’s Research Editors, who will review all footnotes for accuracy and proper formatting. If a citation does not support the proposition to which it is attached, the research team will locate an alternative source, and create an appropriate citation. After this process is completed, the journal’s Executive Editor and Editor-in-Chief will conduct final reviews for quality control, before returning the piece to you for ultimate approval.
