  • Visit the journal site to view the current and past issues and online-only features!
  • Authors interested in having an proposal considered can complete a form for one of the two article types:
    • Brief Review: Authors must present a novel hypothesis derived from several of their peer-reviewed publications. Based on our understanding that a hypothesis represents an expected outcome derived from a model of the involved system, these articles are required to provide a rationale for why a particular outcome can be predicted based on the existing literature on the identified issue. Within this framework, subsequent outcomes, whether or not they are consistent with the hypothesis, will inform us about the intrinsic characteristics of the system. If approved, the submitted manuscript should provide the rationale for the hypothesis and a schematic figure that illustrates the hypothesis is required.
    • Perspectives for Progress: Senior investigators who are still active in research are invited to provide a synthesis of the current state in a particular field, identify gaps in knowledge, and suggest key questions that need to be addressed.
