Southeast of Now practices double-blind peer review by at least two professional peer reviewers. That is to say the writer and the reviewer remain anonymous to each other. Peer review is facilitated and mediated by the members of the editorial collective, supported by NUS Press where required, and peer reviews remain confidential between the editorial collective, the author, the reviewer and the publisher. The editorial collective and the publisher reserve the right to edit the peer reviews before sharing with authors.

Reviews remain the intellectual property of peer reviewers, and the editorial collective and NUS Press may use them only for the purposes of the peer review process. If requested by the author to transfer peer reviews to another journal we will seek permission of the reviewer first.
