  • 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.


    The Special Issue can comprise only 14 papers of no more than 30 pages. Send your proposal to the three of us: dariusz.gwiazdowicz@up.poznan.pl, aleksandra.matulewska@gmail.com, valwagnerfr@yahoo.com

    Deadline for abstract: 10 February 2021 

    Decision for inclusion: 30 March 2021

    Deadline for full paper: 15 January 2022 (instructions will be sent after decision to include papers in the special issue)
