General Submission Rules

Submitted articles cannot have been previously published, nor be forthcoming in an archival journal or book (print or electronic). Please note: "publication" in a working-paper series does not constitute prior publication. In addition, by submitting material to Teatro, the author is stipulating that the material is not currently under review at another journal (electronic or print) and that he or she will not submit the material to another journal (electronic or print) until the completion of the editorial decision process at Teatro.

Review Process

All submissions are reviewed by the Managing Editor and assigned to no fewer than two peer reviewers. Reviewers may choose to recommend that submissions be published, be accepted pending minor revisions, be accepted only after major revisions, or be rejected. Requests for revisions will be forwarded promptly to authors. Every stage of the review process is double blind.
