The Internal Auditing & Risk Management Journal places great emphasis on the quality of the papers it publishes.  Following Editorial recommendation, papers are submitted to a double-blind review process before publication. As a result of the technical review process, a manuscript may be accepted without change, recommended for modification and further review, or rejected.
Commentary by reviewers will be summarized and sent by email to authors, who can choose to revise their papers in line with these remarks. Re-submitted papers should be accompanied by descriptions of the changes so that the desk-editor can easily see where changes have been made.
