Method of peer review
for a detailed description please see Author Information
The first volume in this series lists all occurrences of every word in Old English (OE), except about 200 common (or high-frequency) words which constitute the second volume. The volumes thereafter are ancillary publications on OE philology and the philological tradition, and on the language, inscriptions and literature of this period.
North American customers are advised to order from the Pontifical Institute of Mediaeval Studies.
Internal Evaluation and Peer Review
When a complete manuscript is submitted, it is examined by members of the publications department and, where appropriate, by the relevant series editors. If the preliminary impression is favourable, the manuscript is sent to two independent external readers for appraisal.
No decision to publish can be made without the recommendation of the two readers or of any further readers the department may appoint. If the readers give only qualified approval, consideration for publication will go forward once the author has revised the work (or answered any objections).
The final decision to publish rests with the Institute’s Manuscript Review Committee, a group of senior scholars charged with maintaining the integrity of the PIMS imprint.
