Special Issues are an important component of Mathres’s journals. They deal with more focused topics with high current interest falling within the scope of their journals. They should be organized by recognized experts in the area and attract articles of the highest quality. Special Issue proposals are welcome at any time during the year, and should be submitted to the editorial office: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Proposals for Special Issues should be submitted by the Lead Guest Editor of the Special Issue and should include the following:
- A suggested title for the Special Issue
- Proposed Aims and Scope, giving an overview of the Special Issue’s intended focus and a list of the topics to be covered
- A list of the Guest Editors who will join the Lead Guest Editor in managing the Special Issue
- A proposed timeline and schedule which includes: Deadline for submission, First round of review and Tentative publication date.
If approved, a Call-for-Papers for the Special Issue will be issued and posted online. Special Issues are made freely available online to all interested readers leading to the maximum possible dissemination and recognition within the scientific community. The Guest Editors’ main editorial task is to manage the peer review of submitted manuscripts. Guest Editors should recommend papers for publication only on the basis of academic merit and subject appropriateness. If the Special Issue receives less than 15 submissions, we will unfortunately have to move the papers to the regular section of the journals.
