During these challenging and unprecedented times for the global communities as they battle the COVID-19 pandemic, we appreciate that many of our editors, editorial boards, reviewers and authors are being deployed in other areas, with different sets of responsibilities and challenges as they support their own health systems to care for patients.
We recognise that issues related to our journals will invariably take a back seat until this crisis ebbs as efforts are concentrated towards patient care. We will grant extensions to any author or reviewer as needed. If you are an author who has recently submitted a manuscript, please be patient as our review capacity may be drastically reduced.
