Peer Review Process

Peer Review Process 

All work submitted to the First Peoples Child & Family Review that is being considered for publication is subject to a two-stage peer review process. The first stage is an initial review by a member of the editorial team to ensure quality and relevance. Submissions that pass the initial review are then anonymously peer-reviewed by at least two experts in the relevant topic.
