Benefits of publishing in a journal collection / special issue

What are some of 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.
