HistoryEdit

The journal was announced in February 2014, and the first articles were published in early 2015.[2]

Editorial structureEdit

Editorial decisions are made by the editorial board. The board is divided into editorial groups, each of which is led by a deputy editor and composed of a group of associate editors.

Open access policiesEdit

As of 2019, the article processing charge for articles published under a CC BY-NC or CC BY license is $4,500. When the journal was launched, this policy was initially criticized by open access advocates, who preferred the less restrictive CC BY license.[3][4][5][6]
