Papers should be submitted to the Chief Editor, Mark Germine, via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
We will endeavor to provide a publication decision within 30 days of receipt, often faster. However, authors must naturally expect some variance here.
Our methods of assessing submissions are as follows:
- Research papers and survey articles will be peer-reviewed
- Commentary items and book reviews will be accepted or rejected by editorial decision
- Informal essays may be processed either by peer review or by editorial decision. Authors may request peer review if that is their wish.
Initial submissions may be made in electronic format, or by ordinary post. However, electronic format is encouraged, and if a paper is accepted for publication, at that point the author will be required to provide an electronic version.
The preferred formats for submission are, in order of preference:
- Word (*.doc or *.docx)
- HTML (Hypertext Mark-Up Language).
- RTF (Rich Text Format)
Note that all modern word processors (e.g. recent versions of Word and WordPerfect) will create RTF files.
Our current policy, subject to change, is that we will not require authors to assign the copyrights of their articles to DynaPsyc. All we ask is that the author grants DynaPsyc permission to post their article on the Web for an unlimited time period.
Except in unusual cases, we will not accept articles that have previously been published in another refereed journal — we prefer to focus DynaPsyc on original material.
