Policy Briefs


Review Process

ICCT adheres to a double-blind peer-review process for its Policy Briefs. ICCT Reports will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis and may be subject to the double-blind peer-review process. Analyses are reviewed internally by the editors. The editors will make every effort to notify authors of the decision within:

  • Four to eight weeks of receipt of Reports;
  • Six weeks of receipt of Policy Briefs;
  • One to two weeks for Analyses. Particularly timely Analyses, covering topics of the day can be reviewed and published within 48hrs, but authors must explicitly state the relevance of their manuscript in the submission process.


*All timelines indicated above are subject to the availability of relevant reviewers.

ICCT reserves the right to reject any submission without elucidation. Manuscripts that are accepted on condition of revision may be subject to a second review after revisions are received.
