Wait times for submissions received after a given process time will not begin until the subsequent processing time (e.g., if your paper arrives at 4:30 pm, it will not be processed--and your expected 48 hour waiting period will not begin--until 9:00 am the following day). Please plan accordingly.
You should expect to receive feedback within 48 hours for the first 8 pages of the paper. If you would like to meet with a tutor to discuss the comments, follow the procedures above for making an appointment.
