What happens after my work is submitted?
After completing an Author Contract, submitted student work is vetted in a peer review process by faculty research advisors and the editorial board.

  • Faculty Research Advisor/Mentor/Faculty is responsible for content vetting.
  • Section Editors and Journal Editors work to help students perfect a publishable product.
  • Layout & copy editors provide continuity and publication standards.
  • Managing Editor & Co-Editors provide oversite and assign submissions.

The OJS-USW system manages this process. Each author has their own dashboard to work with journal staff to review, be accepted, edit, and perfect each submission. Specifically, this is the selection/publication process for submissions, options for reviewers, and editors to work with each submission, make suggestions, and accept or reject the submissions. From the dashboard and as an author you may visit your profile page and make additions/corrections to your status, profile, bio, etc.
