  • 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.

  • Dear Authors and Readers

    The journal’s editorial direction has decided to improve its services by publishing the articles in a continuous way (continuous article publishing). This will allow articles to be directly published in issues (in construction) as soon as they are accepted and ready to be published. The articles will then be citable in their final format immediately, without having to spend time online first.
