P1: VENDOR/GMX Sexual Abuse: A Journal of Research and Treatment [saj] PP165-339974 July 20, 2001 11:16 Style ﬁle version Nov. 19th, 1999 ° C Sexual Abuse: A Journal of Research and Treatment, Vol. 13, No. 4, 2001 ( 2001) Articles submitted to Sexual Abuse: A Journal of Research and Treatment are reviewed by an Associate Editor and also by two independent reviewers. Attempts are made to assign reviewers who specialize in the speciﬁc topic area addressed in the particular manuscript submitted. After the two reviewers have completed their reviews, the Associate Editor then makes a recommendation to the Editor-in-Chief incorporating responses from all three reviews regarding publication. As Editor-in- Chief, after conducting my own independent reviews of the submitted manuscripts, I make the ﬁnal decision regarding publication. I have—to date—concurred with the recommendations made by the Associate Editors. I disagree with the assertions made that the authors were attempting to put a positive spin on their data. The issue raised regarding randomized control trials has been addressed by Drs. Hanson and Nicholaichuk (2000). Although an optimal design is random assignment, the cost, difﬁculty in administering, and lengthy time until the outcomes are available make them extremely difﬁcult to conduct in the sex offender area. As Hanson and Nicholaichuk (2000) note, given the difﬁ- culties, post hoc comparison groups have been encouraged. Furthermore, Hanson and Nicholaichuk have offered a cautionary note regarding the Nicholaichuk et al. study. Judith V.
