The Journal of Nietzsche Studies currently publishes three times annually: Winter (February), Summer (July), and Autumn (October).
This varies according to time of year (reviewers are sometimes difficult to find during the summer months) and other factors that impact our ability to secure appropriate reviewers. In general, we aim for an 8-week evaluation and response period.
JNS uses a blind peer-review process. Submissions are reviewed by the editorial team to determine their suitability for peer-review. We generally secure two reviewers; on occasion, we get reports from three. Reviewers make recommendations to: publish, not publish, publish with revisions, or revise and resubmit. The editorial team uses these recommendations in formulating its final decisions.
The Journal acceptance rate is currently 10%.
