The Journal regrets that it can return only those works for which the author provides a pre-addressed, postage-paid envelope.
In the event an author is presented with a deadline from another publication, we will make every effort to expedite review of their work. Unfortunately, we will be able to expedite review only during the school year (mid-August through mid-May).
To request an expedited review, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Expedite requests should include the author's name, the title of the work, the name(s) of the offering journal(s), and the deadline date.
