Federal Governance strives to create an open and accessible platform without sacrificing rigor and quality. Submissions will be subject to a double-blind peer review, conducted by an international board of graduate-student Referees and members of the advisory board. Essays will be judged on the basis of scholarship, quality of research and relevance to the fields of federalism and multi-level governance. Prospective authors are encouraged to contact the editor regarding the suitability of a proposed topic. Each submitted article will undergo a double-blind peer review i.e. the article will be reviewed anonymously by selected international graduate-students, referees and in some cases by members of the journals advisory board. The editors will forward improvement proposals to the authors.
