Papers may be submitted to any Editor. An Editor may submit a paper for HHA to another Editor where it will obtain the usual refereeing process.
When an article is received, the receiving editor replies to the submitter to let them know that the article has been received. That acknowledgment should be copied to the Executive Editor (Don Davis <email@example.com>) and should include authors' names and e-mail addresses, the title of the paper and the date received.
The receiving Editor is responsible for finding referees (typically one or two, as appropriate). Please ask referees to follow the Guidelines for Referees. The receiving Editor makes the final decision about acceptance or rejection. The number of articles submitted to HHA has been increasing and we currently have a backlog of accepted articles, so we ask editors to adhere to very high standards when making decisions. For long articles, e.g. articles over 30 pages in HHA format, please consult with the Managing Editors before acceptance. (It is also be a good idea to consult with the Managing Editors before requesting substantial revisions to such papers.) See the Guidelines for Referees for details.
Referee reports will be kept by the receiving Editor who will provide a copy to the submitter.
The decision on acceptance or rejection is communicated to the Executive Editor and to the submitter by the receiving Editor. In the case of acceptance, the receiving Editor ensures that the appropriate revisions are made and asks the authors to submit a latex file and a matching pdf file following the author guidelines. Please be sure to remind the submitter to follow the guidelines.
After receiving the final latex file, the receiving Editor checks that the article follows common typesetting conventions, uses hha.cls, and has keywords and math subject classification codes. The receiving Editor then sends these files to the Martin Crossley <M.D.Crossley@swansea.ac.uk> and includes the date of submission, the date(s) that revised versions were received (if any), and the date of acceptance. The Managing Editors oversee the copyediting, and send proofs to the submitter by e-mail. The submitter sends comments on the proofs to the Managing Editors. When the final version is ready, it is posted immediately on the web site. When the issue is complete, International Press prints it based on the files on the website.
