Special Issue (SI) is a collection of papers centered around a specific topic, led by an expert (Guest Editor) in the field. Special Issues are an important component of our journal and cover current hot topics within the scope of the journal.
All papers belonging to a Special Issue will be gathered together on a single webpage. They are published in the regular issues of the journal as soon as publishable, and labeled as belonging to the Special Issue. A link from each paper will take you to the Special Issue website.
Submissions to Special Issues will undergo the same rigorous peer-review process as regular papers submitted to the journal.
