Publish your article

If you would like to know more about the article publishing process at De Gruyter, you will find all the information you need here. This page explains how to get your article published, the different levels of editing, workflows and systems that allow us to provide a service that meets the different needs of researchers across different subject areas.


Here is an overview of the publishing process following the submission of your manuscript:

  • Editor’s assessment: In-house editors review the scope, content and language of the manuscript to decide whether or not it merits peer review. Articles often get rejected at this stage.

  • Peer review: The manuscript undergoes peer review to obtain feedback from other subject matter experts on the quality of the submission. There are different types of peer review. Before you submit your manuscript, it is important to understand the difference between various review processes:

    1. Double blind: Reviewers do not know the name of the author, and the author does not know the name of the reviewers.

    2. Single blind: Reviewers know the author's name, but the author does not know the name of the reviewers.

    3. Open peer review: The identity of both parties is disclosed

  • Editor’s decision: Following peer review, editors choose to recommend the article for publication, send it back to the author for revisions or reject it. Editors reserve the right to reject a submission even after multiple rounds of revisions.
  • Revisions: Authors are required to implement revisions based on the feedback from editors and peers and have to respond to any comments from reviewers.

  • Final decision: When an article is ready for publication, the editor makes a final acceptance decision. Once a manuscript is accepted, it is moved to production where it may go through a process of language and technical editing. Additional revisions may be required before the manuscript is moved into production.

Even when there are no complications, these stages take time. Authors can avoid unnecessary delays by making sure there are no missing files, that all raw data files are included in the submission and that all files are editable.
