General Prioritization of Editing

The rules governing the prioritization of student editing are a decision of the faculty body, and the editor has no discretion about the order or timing of editing.

  • There is no guarantee that editing will be completed in time for the graduation deadline of a particular term. This is contingent on the backlog of work in the editing queue.
  • If you feel you have extenuating circumstances, you must address these to the Director of the Institute. Changes to the order of editing work can only made by a decision of the faculty as a whole or by the mutual agreement of all academic advisors involved.
  • If a student does not provide advanced notification of their intent to submit at the beginning of the semester and if there is a backlog of editing work, the faculty body may use their discretion to assign the editing of that student's work a lower priority.

When Can I Schedule My Jury?

It is the policy of the Institute that doctoral candidates should not make specific plans regarding the scheduling of their jury until the editing of their manuscript has been completed.

To estimate the timing of your jury, divide the number of words in your manuscript by 6 thousand to arrive at the approximate number of working days (i.e. weekdays) the editing may take. You may then need a couple weeks to make revisions before distributing your text. Your committee members will need one week ― ten (10) days for doctoral dissertations ― to review the work. Generally this means your jury date can be no earlier than three (3) to four (4) weeks after the editing is completed.

If you have any questions not addressed by the FAQ, you may contact the editor by email.
