ANNALS does not accept submission of a previously rejected proposal in revised form. The guiding principle here is the literature on which the proposed review is based. In a sense, the literature one reviews is the ANNALS analogy of data for empirical journal submissions. Just as empirical journals such as AMJ do not accept submission of a paper based on data on which a previously rejected paper was based, ANNALS does not accept proposals for a review of a literature for which an earlier proposal was rejected from substantially the same author team. When there is overlap in the literature reviewed but not complete overlap, the extent to which a literature reviewed is too similar to qualify for new submission or different enough to qualify for a resubmission is an assessment made by the editors. When you submit a proposal based on the same literature as a previously rejected proposal on the assumption that the literatures reviewed are different enough, ANNALS expects you to alert the editors to this overlap and the submission history in a cover letter.
