And so it begins…

A big thanks to everybody who has submitted their work the the journal. As of two days ago, the papers have been sent to our teams of editors who will be evaluating the various submissions.

They will be judging the papers on our marking criteria, and then standout papers will be evaluated further. This process shouldn’t take too long, as we’re getting quite good at this.

We will announce the papers which will be published in the paper in another post, so watch this space!
