Special Issues

A Special Issue will often focus on a  particular aspect of a journal's scope and in most cases falls into one of  three categories:

  • Topical  Special Issues
  • Honorary  Special Issues
  • Papers  from key presentations given at a conference

Papers included in a Special Issue are  handled outside of a journal's regular submission process and are organized by  one, or several, Guest Editors.

Manuscripts accepted in a Special Issue  should reflect the quality of those articles published in regular issues of the  journal and should be of clear international appeal. High quality Special  Issues are beneficial to a journal as they have the potential to increase usage  and citations and to attract new authors and readers.

Special Issues are published as part of a  journal's announced publication schedule. The title of a Special Issue may be  prominently placed on a journal's cover, and sometimes also on the journal  spine. Full disclosure of a Guest Editor's affiliation, accreditations and any  potential conflicts of interest are published inside all Special Issues. If a  Guest Editor wishes to check these details before publication they can arrange  this via their publishing contact.

xtra copies of Special Issues may be  purchased at a discounted rate and distributed to interested parties. Hardbound  copies, softbound copies, CDs, USB sticks and online access for non-subscribers  can also be arranged. Any of these products/activities can be sponsored by a  third party, such as a related industry or government agency or conference  sponsor, in exchange for acknowledgement and/or advertisement. Guest Editors  who would like more information on these services should contact their  publishing contact: (Jagna Mirska and Nithya Sathishkumar)


Supplements are similar to Special Issues  in that they focus on a particular aspect of a journal's scope. However  Supplements are published in addition to a journal's announced schedule and  thus the production costs must be covered by an external source.

Funds to cover a Supplement's production  costs commonly come from conference organizers (setting aside a portion of  delegates' fees), or from sponsorship by a commercial company, who would then  wish to be acknowledged in the Supplement. It is important that full disclosure  of a sponsor's involvement and any potential conflicts of interest should be  transparent and fully acknowledged. While Supplements may contain  acknowledgements, they should not contain product advertisements.
Like Special Issues, Supplements are  subject to peer review and the content of a Supplement should never be  disclosed to a commercial sponsor prior to publication. Depending on the  specific arrangement, a Supplement may be sent to the Editor of the involved  journal, and in some cases to a Society, for final approval.
