Editorial & Peer Review Process
The Banking & Finance Law Review’s review process entails an initial review of the manuscript by the Managing General Editor or Section Editor to gauge its suitability for possible publication based on subject matter and calibre. Manuscripts that pass the initial review are subject to a double-blind review by two reviewers with special expertise in the subject area. A “double blind” review refers to the anonymity of both the reviewer and author vis-à-vis one another throughout the peer review process. The Managing General Editor or Section Editor reviews the comments received from the Expert Peer Reviewer to assist in publication decisions and will generally relay the reviewer’s feedback to the author. Prior to publication all manuscripts also undergo two rounds of copy editing to ensure language clarity and consistency with the Banking & Finance Law Review’s Style Guidelines.
