consensus, the article will be read by an additional reader and then,
again, decided upon for future publication.

Articles accepted for publication are done so under the following
conditions: 1) If the article has not appeared in English previously,
the article will not appear in publication before its publication in
Reconstruction. 2) The author of said article is responsible for any
