JPGT Vol. 2 Cover.png

JPGT publishes on a rolling basis, when individual submissions have been through our publishing process. A new volume is started for each section when a maximum of three submissions have been completed. This means that we can have multiple issues in progress simultaneously, which reduces the pressure on editors and authors to produce articles and issues quickly, and removes the need for rigid deadlines. JPGT embraces slow scholarship, allowing authors to take their time over their work in a low-stress environment with support from our editorial team. This forms part of our work in dismantling harmful 'norms' in academia and publishing. 

Vol. 2 Publication Submission Status:

Articles: CLOSED (Vol. 1 Open)

Commentaries: CLOSED (Vol. 1 Open)

I nudged couch cushions with a knee, then smeared thick, white sunscreen on a little face while making a mental note of the sunscreen's expiration date...
