Submit to a Regular Issue

Please use the form below to submit a paper for a regular issue of Te Reo. Please note that posters, review articles + commentary pieces, and book reviews are to be submitted at the editor’s request (but the editor welcomes expressions of interest for these). Your submission is important to us! You should get an email confirming your submission within 24h but please email the editor directly if you have not received a confirmation email from them within 3 working days following your submission. Thank you for your submission.

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.
