Peer review process
AI Practitioner is an international journal devoted to Appreciative Inquiry and related disciplines. Appreciative Inquiry is a positive, strengths-based change approach which is revolutionising the field of organisational development and change. The journal brings together articles on current research and practice written by and devoted to AI practitioners and research-practitioners.
AI Practitioner is published online quarterly in February, May, August and November at aipractitioner.com, and can be purchased either as a complete issue or as individual articles. Between six and twelve articles are published per issue.
Each issue is devoted to a particular aspect of Appreciative Inquiry, and guest edited by experts in both the chosen topic and Appreciative Inquiry.
The peer review process is two-tier. In the initial stage, guest editors send out a call for submissions and review the articles submitted to decide which to choose for publication. The contributors are given a choice at that time of an open review or a double-blind review.
If contributors choose an open review process, one editor will the lead in reviewing and commenting on the article to the contributor(s). Depending on the number of editors for the issue, one or more may contribute to the process.
If contributors choose a double-blind review process, two reviewers from the list of academics/AI practitioner-researchers in a variety of fields who have agreed to serve as reviewers will be selected to review the articles.
