Our range of open access journals commenced from April 2018, and we are currently receiving manuscripts for all of our titles. Every manuscript submitted to a Castledown journal must go through a rigorous double-blind international peer-review process, and only manuscripts that meet the expectations of the respective editors will be published.

All of our journals have their own independent editorial boards that ensure quality of the articles that are published, and all published issues are submitted for inclusion in recognised indexing agencies. Our titles are already indexed in the MLA International Bibliography, the Directory of Open Access Journals, ERIC, EBSCO, and Scopus. More information about open access publishing in our journals is available from here.

Any general questions about publishing in our journals or about creating a new journal with Castledown can be directed to journals@castledown.com.
