Exchanges are responses to published articles, and responses to those responses. The feature will be available in the Dynamic and Print Editions of the journal.
Exchanges are meant to continue the conversation. Exchanges should be written in a tone that is conversational and analytical, not argumentative. Exchanges are not meant to be soapboxes for the airing of grievances. Tone matters. The reason for an Exchange can be a different point of view that furthers the conversation by providing new insights, questions, suggestions, and directions that guide or motivate more inquiry. Exchanges can raise other theoretical perspectives, compelling empirical evidence, or logics not considered in the original article that helps readers view the article differently. Sometimes, a reviewer of an article might turn in a review of such insight that it materially adds to the conversation. At the discretion of the editor and with permission of the reviewer, the such a review might be published as an Exchange.
Exchanges are editorially reviewed and should be submitted under the Manuscript type “Exchange” in Manuscript Central. Exchanges can be solicited or unsolicited. When submitting an Exchange, please reference the article to which you are responding in the title. The editors may send your contribution to the author of the original article for a response, not as reviewer but as a colleague, to further the conversation. Please contribute to Exchanges.
