EXPEDITED conditions.
Standard CNS Neuroscience & Therapeutics peer review processes inform all editorial decisions (see our 'Editorial Policy' pages). The details contained in editorial recommendations and decisions about individual submitted papers are not linked to payment - the EXPEDITED service only aims to deliver these recommendations faster. Clinical trials submitted for consideration via the EXPEDITED service may be rejected. The EXPEDITED service charge is not refundable. Delivery of proofs in 7 working days from 'accept' decision is conditional on transmission of complete and correct copyright paperwork on or before date of 'accept' decision. Proofs will be delivered 7 working days from arrival of transmission of copyright paperwork if copyright paperwork is transmitted later than 'accept' decision. Contact us for more information (
