Peer Review Process

  • Each submission will be reviewed by a minimum of two reviewers, one student, and one faculty/staff member. 
  • Reviewers will utilize the Journal of Creative Inquiry review criteria rubric.
  • To qualify, reviewers will undergo Journal of Creative Inquiry reviewer training that familiarizes them with the QEP and the review standards, as reflected in the rubric.
  • After receiving a minimum of two reviews, the editorial team will render a final decision. Decisions may include accept, decline, or revise and resubmit. 
  • Given the annual production cycle of the Journal of Creative Inquiry, the decision of revise and resubmit will be used sparingly.
  • All authors will be notified via email of the decision on their submission.
