Articles go straight to GP, unless there's something gravely wrong with the content--if it is, then it will be reassigned to a more informed person. Considering that there were other people working on this for a while, I think yours should be fine!
hey! sorry to bother you randomly, but could i clarify what exactly is the approval process for an article? (i took over the sun article here and have pretty much finished it up so yeah) is there a QC process to go through or do articles go straight to GP? thanks :)
