Peer Review Process

The Journal of Income Distribution aims to provide a full and fair peer-review process conducted by those knowledgeable in the particular sub-field of income distribution. The Journal thus far is extremely impressed with the accountability of peer referees it selects. While it continues to give anonymity to referees, invariably authors are extremely appreciative of the work referees do in an effort to improve their submissions. Many do voluntarily and individually officially credit them for their work. The Editor acknowledges the contribution through the periodic publication of an open list of past referees to the JID. Each paper submitted is refereed by at least two scholars. If their recommendations differ, a third referee is retained with the aim of reaching a majority decision on publication. Referees are asked to return their reports within 2 months days of initial receipt of a paper. Referees are asked to prepare a comments portion of a confidential report to be passed on to the authors. The JID team of over 200 referees consists of experts actively engaged in research, who really enjoy their assessment task. They are joined and buttressed by an advisory editorial board of internationally recognized experts. who, in forming the backbone of our body of referees, assure the high quality of evaluation of the submitted papers. The Editorial Office is still in the beginning stages of learning how to handle the new technique of website communication and to guide manuscripts remotely through the evaluation stages. The "formal trails" are being set up to benefit authors and referees. This should go some of the way toward speeding up the refereeing process and giving authors and referees the full advantage of electronic transmission. The Editorial Office takes into account the working conditions of our colleagues who might not have access to strong institutional support for high technology. We do hope that we have found a balance between the necessary urgency of quality-control on submissions to the JID and the conditions of work of both those presenting and those judging research results.
