In keeping with the artistic ethos of jcb, ‘Editors’, ‘Associate Editors’ and the ‘Editorial Board’ have been rebranded as ‘Curators’, ‘Facilitators’ and ‘Curatorial Board’ respectively. Unlike many academic journals, our aim is to assist contributors not assail them.

Review Process

In order to streamline and speed up the review process, the Curators’ working assumption is that submitted articles etc. are ‘finished’ works of art.

They are as good as the creators can make them and thus publication-ready, in principle. They will be evaluated by the curators on that basis, in conjunction with subject-area facilitators and, when necessary, with relevant members of the curatorial board. Although necessary revisions will be accommodated, rapid decision-taking and speedy publication are jcb’s overriding aims.

Special Issues

jcb is the home of readable radical research and the Curators are keen to publish Special Issues that reinforce its 3Rs.

Potential topics, in the first instance, should be put to Stephen Brown. A draft Call for Papers will follow thereafter, containing relevant information on the research context, submission details, guest-curators’ contact details, etc. Once agreed, the curators of the SI will be granted full responsibility for the contents of the issue and ensuring that it complements JCB’s house style.
