Editorial process

Performance Research is a specialist journal published eight times a year which aims to promote a dynamic interchange between scholarship and practice in the expanding field of performance.

Each Performance Research issue is theme based and has a 'life cycle' of one year - from the initial call for papers to the final print ready for publication.

For each issue we usually receive between 50 and 100 proposals and the Issue Editors have between 2 to 3 weeks from the proposal's deadline to complete their selection.

On receipt, first drafts will be read by the Issue Editors and also by further independent readers; authors will then be contacted and advised whether we would like to proceed towards publication.

It is the responsibility of the author to obtain all necessary permissions for both print and on-line reproduction of images.

On completion of final drafts, articles will be copy edited, proofed and typeset.

The PDF files of each article will be sent to the author for approval before publication.

Contributors will receive 1 free copy of the issue and an electronic version of their article.
