Re: [xmca] FW: Invitation to Submit an Article

Thanks, Helen.  This is now the third such solicitation, each from a different journal, all in education as a field, that's surfaced here in 2 days.

Word must be out that there's money to be made!

As a former and long time journal editor, I can tell you that you can't get reviews of manuscripts from well-respected researchers in less than about 2 months (collectively, for 3 reviewers, if you're lucky). Any one promising less than that is probably not bothering to get reviews from top people. Or maybe from any people ...
