Special issues are peer-reviewed article collections focused on hot research topics, which are proposed and managed by renowned scholars. Special issues facilitate discussion on state-of the-art research themes, thus enhancing networking and collaboration across academic researchers, which significantly contributes to the advancement of science.
Becoming a guest editor gives you the opportunity to expand your network by inviting experts to contribute to your special issue, and to ensure the quality of every article by managing the peer review process. As a guest editor of a special issue on your own research area, you will benefit from increased impact and recognition, as well as a dedicated online platform and support team of internal editors, in addition to rigorous, efficient and transparent peer review for every article.
Furthermore, articles submitted to special issues in the following four journals: World Academy of Sciences, International Journal of Functional Nutrition, International Journal of Epigenetics and Medicine International, will be published for free in an open access format. By having an unrestricted, online access worldwide and being highly visible, articles published in special issues will undoubtedly promote an increase in the number of readers and citations of your research.
Moreover, by leading a special issue in a Spandidos Publications journal, you will be automatically invited to attend and participate in the annual Spandidos Conference celebrated in Greece in October. In addition, you will be offered one free APC (article) to any of our journals per special issue.
