Author Guidelines

Submission, Initial Assessment and Peer Review

Imperative Syntax Journal has a fully web-based system for submission and review of manuscripts. Submissions must be prepared according to the Author Guidelines and uploaded to the Imperative Syntax Journal. Manuscripts may be returned to authors without scholarly judgment if they do not meet all submission requirements, if they are not in the correct format, or cannot be downloaded reliably.

Submissions must represent the original and independent work of the author. Each new submission is assessed by one or more editors to determine whether the submission falls within the general jurisdiction of the Imperative Syntax Journal. We will reject a manuscript without review if it contains insufficient educational content; has no clear application to education; concerned primarily with the development and development of methodologies and not particularly with the application of these methods to education; there are substantive problems with design, methodology, or data quality; the word exceeds our word limit or is not formatted properly; it was poorly presented and unclear.

Manuscripts that pass the initial assessment are assigned to subject matter experts on our Associate Editor team to oversee the review process. All papers are subject to peer review and authors can expect a decision, or explanation for delay, within one month of acceptance. If a revision is invited, the author concerned must send the revised manuscript within 2 weeks. The final decision is taken by one of the senior editors based on information obtained through a peer review process.

Decision type: Reject, Resubmit, Revision, Accept

Revision

This article requires changes before a final decision can be made. Authors are requested to modify their manuscript based on comments received from referees and editors, and to submit a new version for consideration within 2 weeks of receiving notification. A point-by-point explanation of how comments have been addressed should be included with the revised version of this article. Revisions may undergo further peer review and papers may undergo more than one round of revisions. If the authors do not revise their articles to satisfy the editors, the articles may still be rejected from publication in the Imperative Syntax Journal.
