Please be advised of our new policy regarding dual submission papers. If your dual submission paper is invited to continue the submission process with the journal, the submission fee will be waived for the first round of submission to the journal. If there are subsequent rounds of submission, the standard submission fee will be required. This differs from our prior policy in which the fees were waived for dual submission papers for subsequent rounds of submission. This change is to help cover the cost of referee fees. If you have any questions about whether you need to pay a fee, please contact Managing Editor Jaclyn Einstein before completing your submission.
