Benefits of publishing in a journal collection

What are the benefits of publishing in a collection?

  • Context: Your results and research will appear alongside others working on the same question—helping put your work in the proper context. 
  • Expert guidance: An expert Guest Editor, known to you and your colleagues in your field—who understands your work more completely than the journal’s regular Editors. 
  • Timely review and publication: Because a collection has a time focus, the journal places extra effort on timely review and publication.
  • Improved visibility: Because journals often feature topical collections on their home pages, your work will be more readily visible as compared to publishing in a regular issue or sequence.

We invite you to submit your paper to one of the collections listed above,
