Short Communications

A Short Communication is not considered a terminal publication (i.e., a completed study) and is most appropriate for quickly reporting on novel and important findings from research studies, and new and novel research methodologies and/or technologies.

Please note: The review process for Short Communications is less rigorous than the review process for Full Papers. Each Short Communication is reviewed by two members of the Stapp Advisory Committee and receives only one round of comments. Comments are sent to authors with a rating of Accept, Accept with Suggested Modifications, Accept with Required Modifications, or Reject. For Short Communications receiving a rating of Accept with Required Modifications, the authors must respond with a revision and other appropriate responses to reviewer comments. The authors then receive a final decision as to whether the revised Short Communication is accepted or rejected.
