 To Publish You Must Review

Once all the submitted manuscripts have been received, you will be given 2 to 3 other IYWPC manuscripts to review during September, with guidelines and a webinar to help you with the review process. We will then collate and check all the YWP reviewers responses and you will receive the reviewers feedback to your manuscript at the end of October 2017. You will then have the month of November to incorporate and respond to the reviewers feedback and resubmit your manuscript for submission to the IWA Journals at the end of November. Should your manuscript need further work, we will be running a preconference workshop on publishing and reviewing.
