The Review Process

When a paper is accepted for review, it is anonymized to protect the author’s identity and then distributed to at least two peer reviewers. gnovis‘ peer reviewers are current students and alumni of the CCT program; they will read the project critically, paying close attention to both style and content and returned to thegnovis editorial team. If it meets gnovis‘ editorial standards, the project is then returned to the author for any necessary revisions. Once made, the project goes through a final check by the staff before being published in the next issue.
