Authors’ Area


The secretary has received several hundreds of papers on a variety of diverse topics. Most papers are currently with the respective editors who will assign them to reviewers. Following a series of requests by several authors, our online submission system will remain open until 15 February 2019. We do however encourage our authors to submit their manuscripts as soon as possible in order to allow time for a high-quality peer review.
