The Understanding Biodiversity review process will involve several stages. Initial review should be by the instructor of the submitting students.
Secondary-level review will be provided by the Understanding Biodiversity editors. At this time, the publication may be returned to the contributing student(s) with comments for modification, or the contribution may be submitted for peer-review. It is the intention that published work is subject to a scientific peer-review process. Furthermore, at the discretion of the editors, work may be published prior to the peer-review process, however such work will be noted as published prior to peer-review.
Upon acceptance, materials will be published to the Understanding Biodiversity site in a timely manner. Contributing authors will be able to site their contributions immediately after publication.
