NEW! Faster submission process

We know that authors can find the manuscript submission process time-consuming, so we are pleased to report that we have implemented a streamlined submission process for original research articles. By asking fewer questions at initial submission we hope to minimise the time that authors spend uploading their manuscripts and responding to post-submission queries, resulting in a faster time to first decision.
