New E -Journal editorial guidelines

Editorial Policy
While maintaining the research and editorial standards expected by more formal research-based journals, the AchieveAbility E-Journal takes an inclusive editorial policy to encourage the particular experience, original thinking and preferred communication styles, formats and media of contributors.

Peer Review and Editorial Process
The AchieveAbility E-Journal operates an Open Peer Review process with a panel composed of specialists in the field in accordance with the theme of each particular journal issue. All articles are peer-reviewed independently by those reviewers. Contributions selected for review receive a set of comments collated by the Editors to address before publication. The Editors reserve the right to exercise final editorial control in the interests of the overall coherence of each issue, while respecting the journal’s policy of encouraging originality and preference in the forms of expression and format in the contributions submitted to the journal.
