Peer Review Process

All submissions to be considered for publication in the peer-reviewed sections of The ANZTLA EJournal will be subject to a double blind peer review process, i.e. the reviewers will not know the identity of the author(s) and the author(s) will not know the identity of the reviewers. 

 
Submissions will be refereed anonymously by at least two reviewers. Reviewers will assess the submission against the criteria of content (originality and thoroughness of research, and understanding of context), structure (well-structured argument and conclusion), and clarity of style.

To qualify for peer review, submissions should be based on literary and/or empirical research and make an original contribution to theological librarianship.

All other submissions to the journal (essays, columns, reviews, etc.) will be subject to review by the Editor.

 

Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
