Editorial Policy - Peer Development and Review
The Aspects of Apithlogy Journal is a peer-reviewed on-line resource for practitioners of the discipline of apithology.
The journal adopts an apithological approach to peer-review. This reflects and respects the specific emphasis of apithology practice as a generative science.
The significant difference in this apporach is that papers are not single person authored, statements of opinion, that are reviewed for consilience, as static artefacts. Instead, submissions to the Journal are editor sponsored, syntheses of collaborative inquiries, formed within a community of practice, and revised continuously.
This form of generavist peer-review takes the fom of community generated, dynamic resources, as a sythnesis of present benchmarks, in collaborative praxis.
Review Stages - Article Peer Development

These stages are initially sequential, intentionally non-linear, developmentally phasic, and recursively cyclic. This means an article once published may be revised as developments on that topic occur.
