We regret that we are unable to call or email in the event an article has been rejected.
Archive your research

It is your responsibility to ensure if the draft you provide can be archived. If you are unsure, you can consult SHERPA/RoMEO. If for whatever reason you remain unsure, contact the publisher of your article.
If you have an unpublished manuscript of a thesis or dissertation that you would like to be published, we will publish it so long as it was well received. In this case, please enclose a copy of your final mark and comments. Please send a PDF of the work along with an abstract to us here.
