Invitation for special issue

We plan to publish special issues that focus on research topics of broad common interest. We invite scientists to guest edit and organize special issues in their expertise areas with the journal. Special issues are highly cited and draw maximal attentions in the field of research.

Proposals for special issues are welcome at any time and will be published immediately after the manuscripts are received by the journal. A special issue may cover topics in basic, clinical, translation and technological and other areas of research. Manuscripts in the special issues may include short or full length reviews, researcher articles, short communications and other types as decided by the guest editor(s).

We also invite conference organizers to publish the proceedings as special issue. They may organize a special issue based on the extended or full versions of papers that were presented in the conference, symposium or workshop.

A proposal should include:

  • Short CV with list of publications of the guest editors (and optional co-editor)
  • Special issue topic and the proposed title
  • The aim and scope of the proposed topic
  • Estimated number of articles under the title
