All proposals are peer reviewed by at least two academic experts in the field, external to WRUP. Their reviewer reports, and the author responses, are submitted to the press' Editorial Board (a panel of academics drawn from across the Universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York) who make their commissioning decision based on these and the original proposal. A further round of peer review may be requested if the proposal needs to be amended or if the findings of the first reviews conflict. All commissioned journals are required to have a robust peer review and editorial process when accepting articles for publication. For commissioned books, the final manuscript submission also goes out for peer review by two academic experts in the field. Their reports, and the responses to these, inform the Editorial Board's decision to send the manuscript to production or to recommend amendments before the project proceeds.
