Open Access

RC&T now supports Open Access publishing!  Authors of manuscripts accepted by the journal may choose between traditional journal publishing and Open Access. In the Traditional model, once your article is published it will be accessible in-print or online to paid subscribers, libraries, or pay-per-view viewers only.  In the new model you may choose to publish Open Access, making your article freely accessible to anyone via the journal website.

We also seek qualified reviewers to participate in the Peer Review process. Please read the Reviewer Guidelines document.
