EJES operates a two-stage review process.
- Contributors are invited to submit 500-word proposals for full essays on the topic in question, usually with a September/October deadline.
- Following review of the proposals by the editorial board panel, informed by external specialists where appropriate, guest editors invite the authors of short-listed proposals to submit full-length essays for review, usually with a March/April deadline.
- The full essays undergo another round of review by the panel and a final selection is agreed between the guest editors and general editors for delivery usually by October.
EJES uses an author: date citation system and employs British English conventions for spelling and punctuation.
