Responsibilities of Guest Editors

A guest editor’s responsibilities include the following:

  1. The guest editor is responsible for ensuring timely submission of all proposed contributions at every stage of the review and publication process.
  2. The guest editor must provide authors with a preliminary editorial review of all proposed manuscripts for thematic coherence, substantive contribution, and journal format prior to submission (unedited conference papers cannot be considered).
  3. Following external review, the guest editor is responsible for conveying the editorial reviews to the individual authors and monitoring the revision process.  The faculty editor has final responsibility for deciding on acceptance or rejection.
  4. The guest editor must remain available to the faculty and student editors throughout the editorial and publication process.
