Early Publication Route

The publisher of the journal – Wiley – has introduced an early publication route: your paper can now be published within 5 days of acceptance. See the journal website for more information.


Wiley has partnered with Publons, a valuable new service dedicated to supporting improvements in peer review. Publons aims to give credit to reviewers for their contributions in a format they can include in resumés and funding applications. Publons provides a valued service for reviewers who feel it’s important to have a public record of their review activity.  Reviews remain blind and unpublished, meaning that the reviewer’s name will only be associated with the journal and reviewer comments will not be published.

Special Issue

Watch out for the special issue on Equality and Diversity appearing in October 2016.

We are now taking proposals for further themed issues for 2017 and 2018 Details from [email protected] Executive Co-Editor.
