Who Can Submit

The editors reserve the right to determine the suitability of submissions. For additional information, please contact us. Territories uses blind peer review (see submission guidelines) and screens for plagiarism as part of the peer review process. The journal does not have article processing charges or article submission charges.



Once published, a journal article cannot generally be revised or removed. We feel it is important to provide perpetual access to materials published whenever possible and appropriate. However, we will remove publications under special circumstances, including in the case of submission errors, rights violations, or inappropriate content. Please be aware, however, that even after the removal of a work, a citation to the work will remain in our system, along with a URL.

If you would like your work removed from eScholarship, please contact the editors.

Revising Work

Once manuscripts are published, we are generally unable to them. If a significant error or omission is discovered, contact the editors.
