Review Policy

The Strategic Trade Review is a peer-reviewed journal using a double blind process. The Editor-in-Chief initially reviews all submissions to the journal.

All selected submissions are reviewed by at least two peer reviewers that are experts in the specific area of strategic trade covered. The reviewers will communicate acceptance of manuscripts for publication within five weeks of submission or less.

If a manuscript is not acceptable in its present form, the reviewers will pass on suggestions for revisions to the author. The Editorial Board reserves the right to reject manuscripts that do not conform to the standards of the journal.

Self-Archive Policy

The Strategic Trade Review’s self-archive policy is that archiving is permitted and there is no embargo period for the deposit of author accepted manuscripts after publication in an institutional repository.
