I had an article published in JSEL a couple of years ago in its Volume 2, Number 2 issue.  The title of the article is, Corking The Cam Newton Loophole, A Sweeping Suggestion.  I found the Editorial Board to be very professional and diligent in the process of editing the manuscript prior to its finished product.
