8 After each article is sent to the associate editor, it is then sent to two anonymous reviewers.

9 These reviewers send comments back to the associate editor.

10 After each article is sent to the associate editor, it is then sent to two anonymous reviewers. These reviewers send comments back to the associate editor. They give suggestions for improvement as well as an opinion about whether it should be published or not.

11 The associate editor then has three choices:

12 Accept paper as is. (rare)

13 The associate editor then has three choices: Accept paper as is. (rare) Accept paper and ask for some changes.

14 The associate editor then has three choices: Accept paper as is. (rare) Accept paper and ask for some changes. Reject paper.

15 Now what do the author(s) do: Accept paper as is… Celebrate

16 Now what do the author(s) do: Accept paper and ask for some changes… Work on changes. May be changes to text, experiments, or both.

17 Now what do the author(s) do: Reject paper… Submit to another journal or try to fix deficiencies and resubmit.

18 Who reviews papers?

19 Volunteers. Other researchers knowledgeable in the field.

20 Who reviews papers? Volunteers. Other researchers knowledgeable in the field. This can lead to conflicts of interest.

21 Who reviews papers? Volunteers. Other researchers knowledgeable in the field. Not every reviewer does a great job.
