Feng Shui Journal Selection
Feng Shui Institute is committed to prompt evaluation and
publication of submitted papers. Manuscripts and Letters to the
Editor for Feng Shui Institute should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our submission and review process is fully electronic. We do not
accept submissions by postal mail.
Authors will be notified of decisions by email only. Repeated
submissions of the same manuscript will not be acknowledged.
Membership in Feng Shui Institute is not a factor in
selection of manuscripts for publication. Feng Shui Institute
treats all submitted manuscripts as confidential documents. Feng
Shui Institute also instructs and expects our Board of Reviewing
Editors and reviewers to treat manuscripts as confidential material.
Our peer review process is also confidential and identities of
reviewers are not released.
All papers are assigned to the editor and are rated for suitability
by members of Feng Shui Institute's Board of Reviewing
Editors. The editor at Feng Shui Institute considers this
advice in selecting papers for in-depth review. Authors of papers
that are not selected are notified promptly, within about 2 weeks.

All authors must agree to be
so listed and must have seen and approved the manuscript, its

Copies of papers submitted to
other journals by any of the authors that relate to the paper
submitted to Feng Shui Institute must be included with the
