Frequently Asked Questions
After submitting an article, how long should I expect to wait for a response?
The Duquesne Law Review takes great care in our selection of superior quality articles and great pride in our relationships with authors. Upon receipt of an article, an Executive Articles Editor will review the submission and decide whether to recommend the article for review to a fellow Executive Articles Editor, or to decline a recommendation. The Executive Articles Editors will then determine whether to recommend the article for review to the Executive Editor and Editor-in-Chief, who will then decide whether to authorize an offer for publication. This process usually occurs 3-5 days after receipt of an article. An offer for publication will be made by an Executive Articles Editor, and if the offer is accepted, all future contact between the author and the Duquesne Law Review will be via an Executive Articles Editor. This is to avoid confusion and to ensure a smooth publication process for both the author and the journal.
