Coordinators and editors are members of the Patterns project at Trier University. Workflow organisation, including submissions, peer reviews and publishing, will take place on this virtual press website.
The book will be published as an Open Access volume with an internationally visible publisher. Each contribution will be peer-reviewed by at least one external and one internal reviewer. At least one review will represent a perspective from a different research community. Reviews will be double-blind in the first round. Upon acceptance of the contribution, however, reviewers will be invited to publish a short commentary on the basis of their review, which will be published together with the article under their name. This way, we hope that both the process of making the book as well as the book itself will foster dialogue among participating researchers.
