Review Editorial Policy
All contributions that are submitted will be acknowledged by the Review Editor as soon as possible. In most cases submitted reviews and articles will be reviewed by at least two members of the team within a week, who may edit the piece to enhance readability. These edits will include:

• Shortening of text if the review is above our stated 1,000 word limit
• The addition of short introductory paragraph outlining the review’s author, their main arguments and findings, and any relevant background information for readers.
• Minor edits are made to most reviews, but sometimes we may ask you to provide more detail on a particular argument or chapter. All suggested changes will always be agreed with you before we publish, and we will be able to give you a publishing date once the final copy is agreed.
• Please note that owing to events and other circumstances beyond our control, we may occasionally have to change our posting order at very short notice. Once reviews are published, we are very happy to make further edits afterwards should the author deem them to be necessary.
• If you do not wish for your article to be republished anywhere else, please let us know. In the hopefully rare cases where the General Editor cannot accept a review, authors can appeal to our Advisory Board and we will ask two members to adjudicate the issue.
• If you have any questions about our policy, please email us at review editor@amdmcjournal.net
