Journal News


In addition to review articles, the journal also welcomes original papers and letters.

  • All articles will undergo a pre-screening. Suitable manuscripts are subject to a strict peer-review process. The number of research papers and letter articles is limited.
  • Accepted articles are published online as soon as possible and are fully citable.
  • Letter articles are limited to 4 print pages. They will enjoy priority handling, but also need to prove that they are of high importance and urgency.

Institutional and Funder Payments
To enable academic and research institutions, funders, and corporations to financially support their investigators publishing open access articles with Wiley-Blackwell a central payment option is now available: Wiley Open Access Accounts enable institutions and funders to pay centrally for open access articles published by their authorized authors. Upon publication, the full open access publication fee for the journal in question, minus any account discount, will be deducted from the account. Please note that Wiley Open Access Accounts cannot be used to pay for any page charges, which, if applicable, are a fee administered separately by individual journals. Authors affiliated with an organization which has a Wiley Open Access Account can publish research articles in a hybrid or fully open access journal published by Wiley without directly paying any open access publication charges.
