Information for Reviewers

Thank you for your interest in becoming a reviewer for the Druze Studies Journal (DSJ)

The journal adheres to rigorous academic standards. Articles will first be internally reviewed, for relevance to Druze Studies, by two members out of three: the Editor-in-Chief, Associate Editor, and/or one Editorial Board member. Only relevant manuscripts will be sent for double-blind review with at least two referees, evaluating each manuscript submitted.

Reviewers may be members of the publication’s Editorial Board or ad hoc reviewers with specialized knowledge related to the topic. All reviewers must possess an advanced degree and demonstrated scholarly history relevant to Druze Studies.

The peer review process will evaluate submissions' scholarly merit, originality, methodology, theoretical contributions, and relevance to Druze Studies.

We will aim to review and respond to submissions within an average of six weeks from the day of the first submission. 

For a quick overview about the review process in our journals system, please see Reviewing for an OJS journal.
