Peer Review:

All papers are subjected to blind and anonymous peer review. A minimum of two referees are appointed to review each paper. Reports by the referees are made available to authors for the sake of transparency and to enable them to improve their manuscripts. A turn–around time of 12 weeks from submission is the goal for first readings of manuscripts submitted in English and 8 weeks for each subsequent iteration (if required). However, for manuscripts submitted in any of the other ten official languages of South Africa, a turn–around time of 24 weeks from submission is the goal for first readings of manuscripts and 16 weeks for each subsequent iteration (if required).

Publication Scheduling:

ORiON is published biannually in June and December.
