As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Our systems will continue to remind authors, reviewers and editors of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
