Monographs and other issues
Monographs differ from manuscripts submitted for publication in that the author/s has/have been specially identified and selected to contribute, given their expertise. Preparation and processing of manuscripts thus differ somewhat from spontaneous submissions.
articles submitted spontaneously
Peer review: Each manuscript is reviewed by the co-ordinator (for monographs) and, if necessary, by at least two specialists whose expertise is of world renown. For articles submitted spontaneously, contributions are submitted to at least two referees. Reviewers are contacted by email and are asked to return their review within a fortnight; reminders are sent to reviewers at appropriate intervals.
The different sections in which papers are published are as follows:
- Original research articles
- Technical reports
- Letters to the editor
- Book reviews and books received
