    • Is the process easy to find?
    • Does the process take a reasonable amount of time (6+ weeks)?
    • Is the process described in detail?
  • Does the publisher document the author's rights?
  • Does the publisher list the editor and editorial board members?
    • Are they experts in the field?
  • Is there a code of conduct?
  • Do authors have to pay prior to acceptance?
