As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
COVID-19 and impact on peer review
Professor Luigi Maiuri passed away in February 2019. A few days earlier, he had sent a commentary to the Italian Journal of Pediatrics which has been published here.
On behalf of all his friends and colleagues who have had the great opportunity to share his enthusiasm for scientific research, let us write this brief reminder.
