Submission Procedure:

Please read carefully before submitting your contribution:

1. Feature editors only decide the review outcome when there is a disagreement between two reviewers.

2. Feature Editors do not intervene on behalf of authors who fail to meet requirements.

3. Any lengthy-frequent-repetitive contacts with the journal is discouraged.
Journal's ten year publishing experience suggests maximum 8 e-mail/postal contacts between the author and AEQ as the norm

1) submission, 2) submission clarification, 3) copyright, and 4) extra contact
You must complete the above 3 in maximum 4 e-mail/postal contacts. Otherwise, your submission will be rejected or rescheduled for consideration until the next available issue.

5) reviews, 6) reviews clarification, 7) final copy, and 8) extra contact
Exceeding eight contacts may disqualify your submission from further consideration as it drives up journal's administrative cost above the sixty-two dollars average per one submission. Hence, in
order to work efficiently, we had to establish 'eight contacts limit' per one submission.

4. The journal does not offer page proofs, offprints, hard copy of galleys or author's complimentary copy of the issue. Instead, authors may qualify for 1/2 price author's copy. If you plan to purchase a
paper copy, you may want to order ASAP when you are assured of paper's publication. Usually, Academic Exchange Quarterly is sold out the month it is printed.
