  • COVID-19 and impact on peer review

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.

  • 2020 Special Issue (IJSME)

    This special issue will detail how to judge, select, and communicate research questions that are researchable. However, papers for this special issue should not merely list researchable questions in mathematics and science.
