A Message to Our Readers, Authors, and Reviewers

We recognize that the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting everyone’s daily lives and the global research community in unprecedented ways. Although some research activities are slowly resuming, many institutions remain closed, with researchers working from home under unusual circumstances. Our editorial teams also continue to work remotely.

Throughout these challenging times, we aim to support our scientific community in any way possible. Given the possible disruption of experimental work, we kindly ask our reviewers to bear in mind that some experiments may presently be hard to carry out. Now more than ever, it is important to mention clearly which suggestions you consider to be essential. We are aware that authors and reviewers are doing their best to revise and review manuscripts given these circumstances and should you need extra time, please contact the corresponding editorial office without hesitation.

Please accept the best wishes of our editorial teams for your ongoing health and wellbeing.

Every article is being given DOI. Thank you for your patience.

*2020 Journal Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2018 and 2019 with the number of times they are cited in 2020 based on ISI Web of Science, Google search and the Scholar Citation Index database. If 'X' is the total number of articles published in 2018 and 2019, and 'Y' is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed journals during 2020 then, impact factor = Y/X
**All time CiteScore was established by dividing the total number of all published articles till date with the number of times they are cited till date based on Google search and the Scholar Citation Index database.
