If there is a need to contact the Editors directly, their contact details are:

Edward I. George         email: edgeorge@wharton.upenn.edu

Tailen Hsing                  email: thsing@umich.edu

It should, however, be possible to obtain information about the progress of your submission through the electronic journal management system.

Managing and Production Editors

The Managing Editor is responsible for the redaction and printing of the journal and supervises the work of the Production Editor, who handles the production details. They examine and correct page proofs, working with the authors of the papers. They often deal directly with authors regarding last-minute changes, references, and other such matters.

Authors should inquire by email first before sending anything through the post.
