Discrete & Continuous Dynamical Systems - S
Guidelines for Special Issues
1) Scope: Special issues are not conference proceedings. The scope of each special issue is proposed by guest editors and approved by the editorial office. Guest editors should, in consultation with leading experts, choose trending topics viable and beneficial to a large readership.
2) Contribution: All articles are by invitation only. Contributors should be chosen selectively to ensure high quality manuscripts. Topics of contributions should be aligned with the scopes of their corresponding special issues.
3) Quantity: Each issue should consist of at least 12 manuscripts and at most 25 manuscripts. Special permission from the chief editor is required if the number of submissions is less than 12 or exceeds 25.
4) Content: No summary article is accepted. No short note (less than 12 pages, single spaced) is accepted unless its significance is sufficiently justified by the guest editors. Well-written expository articles can be considered provided they are contributed by leading experts of the field.
5) Submission: The submission window is up to 6 months. All contributions must be submitted through a unique online invitation link created by the editorial office and sent out by guest editors.
6) Review process: All submissions will undergo a rigorous review process. Each article requires two detailed and conclusive reports for possible acceptance, while a rejection takes just one negative report or no report. The reviewing time should be limited to 4 months for each submission. Referees with conflicts of interest should be avoided.
7) Restrictions: Each author cannot have more than 2 articles within one special issue. Manuscripts submitted by guest editors will be handled by the editorial office.
8) Acceptance: All decisions on acceptance or rejection will be made by guest editors and require final approval from the editorial board. The Editorial Board reserves the right to reject any unqualified submission.
9) Production: The guest editors are responsible for collecting all necessary files in the correct format required for publication.
