Forward Thinking Articles

Author Guidelines

We are actively promoting more rapid dialogue, with the goal to capture the spirit of open innovation and bring insightful research to print faster. Manuscripts should meet two of the following criteria:

1. Timely. “Forward Thinking” articles should address hot topics and provoke discussion.

2. Large-audience Appeal. “Forward Thinking” articles should motivate additional research across a large cross section of researchers.

3. Unique Data. “Forward Thinking” articles will often rely on unique data that informs and future research, but may not be extensive enough to write a traditional research manuscript.
