Dear Potential Contributor to HJEAS:
I hope this email finds you, your family, and colleagues well and safe.
I want to reassure everyone that the Hungarian Journal of English and American Studies will appear on schedule and will be publishing as usual as we go through this pandemic. I welcome your essay and look forward to reading it. We will be following our usual double blind review and other procedures. When your essay arrives, the editors will review it and assuming it is publishable will then send it without any identification to two scholars in your field. On the basis of their recommendations the editors will then ask for any necessary revisions and after that will schedule the essay for a specific issue. If we receive enough publishable essays we are considering devoting a year of the journal to the special topic of adaptation. Usually the first phase takes 3-4 weeks, the double blind review 6-8 weeks, and then revisions may take 2-5 weeks depending on the author’s schedule. We are all learning how to juggle personal lives, scholarship and Distance Learning, so as I mentioned earlier HJEAS will employ a rolling acceptance policy rather than a single due date in the hope that this will provide all of us with some much needed flexibility.
Your safety together with that of your family and colleagues is of paramount importance so do Stay Safe and practice Social Distancing that has become our proven effective weapon against the pandemic.
With every good wish
Donald E. Morse, Editor in Chief
Hungarian Journal of English and American Studies
