Peer Review Process
1. English or French language submissions intended for the "Feature Articles," "Research Note," or "Focus and Viewpoint" sections are reviewed through a blind peer review process by two anonymous reviewers. "Book Review" and "Abstract" submissions in French or English are reviewed by the French or English Language Editor.
2. When reviewing a submission, reviewers are guided by 4 questions:
a. Is the topic of the manuscript progressive?
b. Is the author of the manuscript asking interesting/challenging/new/progressive questions?
c. Is the author using appropriate methods to gather and analyze data?
d. After considering the whole manuscript the reviewer should be able to answer reasonably the "So what?" question?
As well, the reviewer also considers relevance, methodology, presentation, data analysis, discussion, and clarity.
3. Once the manuscript has been submitted to review, authors may expect to receive comments within 4-6 weeks.
4. Reviewers for the journal must be tenured or tenure-track professors or Ph.D. candidates in the fields of Physical Education and Health pedagogy, history, sociology, philosophy, psychology, cultural and management studies, Recreation, Tourism and Leisure studies, and Dance.
