    • Spring: The draft is shared with committee members by February, week 4.

    • Coordinate with Publications Committee to set deadlines for receiving reviews.

  • Committee members offer suggestions and corrections by 2nd week in September/4th week in February.

    • General comments should use the guidelines linked above

    • Content comments should rely on subject and content expertise

    • Other comments rely on collegial context

    • Sometimes these can be extensive rewrites

  • Final Review: Committee responds accordingly

  • Author/RRB Committee Chair forwards the article to ANSS Currents’ editor for final editing and publication
