Do you want to be part of our Regular Issue this year?

If you would like to be assured a space in our 2021 Regular Issue, please submit your abstract to the editor (either by email or by using the form below) by 15th March 2021. Full paper submissions will be invited for accepted abstracts by 1 September 2021. Publication will still be on a rolling basis with first accepted contributions going online as soon as they are finalised.


How long will the review take?

Te Reo has a two-step review process. Your submission will be first reviewed by the Editor in consultation with the Editorial Board and you will be notified of this decision within 10 working days from submission. Assuming a positive initial review, your manuscript will then be sent for review to two-three external reviewers, following a double-blind review process. In most cases, this process takes a max of 3 months – usually much less. Please do not hesitate to contact the Editor if you have any questions.
