Articles published in The International Journal of Health, Wellness, and Society are peer reviewed by scholars who are active members of the Health, Wellness, & Society Research Network. Reviewers may be past or present conference delegates, fellow submitters to the journal, or scholars who have volunteered to referee articles and have been screened by Common Ground's editorial team. This engagement with the Research Network, as well as Common Ground's criterion-based evaluation system, distinguishes our peer review process from those of journals that have a more top-down, editor-centric approach to refereeing.
