Sponsored Supplements

Our journalsaccept supplements. Supplements are generally viewed as being high-quality,peer-reviewed supplements that focus on novel developments and summarizerelevant research findings. Publishing a supplement has two distinct stages:(1) editorial peer review of the manuscripts; and (2) production andpublication of the supplement manuscripts. The two stages incur separate feesand agreements with the organizations of the society (editorial peer review).Supplements are expected to meet the same editorial standards as the journal toensure that the material is interesting and relevant to the journal's readership.

It isimportant for us to consider all proposals carefully and thoughtfully. Toenable us to do so, please send us a 1–2 page summaryof the proposed contents and authorship of the supplement. All supplementsshould contain a general introduction. The summary should give an indication ofany relevant deadlines for the sponsors, e.g. conferences that the supplementshould be available at. It should also give an indication of the number ofmanuscripts to be included in the supplement and when they are likely to besubmitted to the Editorial Office

A manuscriptis defined as any separately authored article; for example, a generalintroduction to the supplement would be counted as one manuscript. The decisionon the proposal is likely to take up to 14 days.
