Dear friends,
we are pleased to announce that we activated two new services for our Journal:
- It is possible to type your comments to the published papers, opening a new “social” era for our journal. Obviously, in order to write a comment, it will be necessary to login using your credentials. Below the Abstract you find the field to be filled.
- We have a new, and really attractive, website that is dedicated to the browsable versions of the published issues:
Select the issue of interest. You can read it as a hardcopy on your pc or your tablet.
Finally, we introduced a supplementary step in the reviewing process. After the “normal” blind peer review, the papers are pre-published in the “Online first” section of the journal. Well, all the readers are solicited to send their comments and, if necessary, authors will be requested to modify the paper before the final publication.
Please, do not hesitate to send us your suggestions to further improve our journal. Very best,
