2020 has been a significant and challenging year for us all and we want to extend our sincere thanks and best wishes to our wonderful editors and the International Editorial Board, authors – and particularly our reviewers who have worked so hard this year with a growing number of submissions.
For all new submissions between 14 December 2020 and 15 January 2021:
During this time there may be some delay in having your paper reviewed by the Editorial team prior to sending for review. We are conscious not to overwork our dedicated editorial team and reviewers at this time of year. We appreciate your patience and will endeavour to process your paper in a timely manner.
