Chemical Senses Editorial Policies During the COVID-19 Pandemic
Amongst the many significant challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic is the disruption of scientific research. Many investigators are being asked by their institutions to ramp down the experimental activity, minimize animal colonies, and work largely from home. It is a stressful time.
At Chemical Senses we hope to minimize that stress. We recognize that it may be more difficult to respond to reviews within the stated time allowed. If you require extra time to respond to reviews, please contact the Chemical Senses editorial office at firstname.lastname@example.org to request an extension.
Of course, these same stressors will impact editors and reviewers, as well. We will do our best to continue to provide timely review of your submitted manuscripts (in 2019, time from submission to first review averaged 32 days). However, we ask your patience if reviews or editorial decisions are delayed beyond the typical time. We will keep you informed should unusually long delays be expected for any reason.
In the days ahead we at Chemical Senses hope that you, your colleagues and your loved ones stay safe. If you have a manuscript that you think is suitable for Chemical Senses, please do submit it. We look forward to receiving a variety of manuscripts reporting studies focused on smell, taste, chemesthesis, internal chemoreception and other topics related to the chemical senses. If you have any questions about the editorial policies of the journal or the suitability of your manuscript for it, please don’t hesitate to reach out to the Editor-in-Chief at ChemSensesEIC@gmail.com.
