Proposals are desk rejected if (a) they do not meet the submission formatting guidelines (e.g., they exceed the length limits, they do not include the areas outlined in the “proposal guidelines”), (b) they do not fit with ANNALS’s mission (e.g., they are primarily theory pieces, opinion or editorial pieces, empirical papers, or meta-analyses), or (c) they substantially overlap with a previously submitted and rejected proposal, and have not be given a “reject and resubmit” response by an editor-in-chief.
