Procedure

We accept contributions to the CCR Blog on a rolling basis. Our Blog Team strives to ensure a speedy and efficient review process. Authors should be prepared to make suitable changes to their articles as required by the Blog Editors before publication.

Conditions of Publication

Please note that submissions not conforming to these guidelines may be returned or rejected. Co-authorship of 2 authors is permitted. While we strive to provide substantive feedback for every submission we receive, it may not always be possible to do so, given the large number of submissions. We reserve the right to reject submissions without providing substantive feedback.
