Journal Author Benefits & Services

Publishing process

When you submit to a Greenleaf Publishing journal, you can expect initial feedback on your manuscript within 2-3 weeks. If your paper proceeds to the peer-review stage, you can expect to receive feedback and a decision within 4-8 weeks.

When your article is accepted you will be informed (where possible) when it will be published. The journal’s publishing team will be in contact with you at each step to answer any queries.


When your article is published, you will receive a free print copy of the issue in which it appears (excluding online-only journals). Greenleaf has a strong commitment to sharing research and best practice, so we offer all journal contributors 60 days’ free online access to Greenleaf’s Sustainable Organization Library, the world’s leading collection of specialized sustainable business research and practice.

Journal Access Initiative

All journal contributors and their institutions now receive one year’s free subscription to Greenleaf Publishing journals and free indefinite access to the journal archives, as part of Greenleaf’s commitment to opening up access to research.
