COVID-19 impact on Peer Review

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic that cause widespread disruption, we are aware of authors and peer reviewers will be having significant changes to adjust to in their professional and personal lives. Thus, we understand that authors and reviewers may have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process.  Please let the journal editor know if you need additional time and we will be flexible to take in to account the very different circumstances that people are experiencing. Thank you.
