  • Articles: Up to 7500 words or 26 double-spaced pages of text. (Abstract, references, figure and table lists, and figures do not count toward the length limit.)

(Abstract, references, figure and table lists, and figures do not count toward the length limit.) No more than a combined total of 6 figures and tables. Multipart papers are not allowed. The peer-review and production/editing processes are accelerated. Author revisions are due within 4 weeks. The expected publication time is 4–7 weeks after final acceptance. If the paper grows beyond the maximum length or figure/table criteria during review and revision, the editor will decide if it remains an expedited contribution or becomes a regular article. Also, if the paper requires a second round of reviews, it will be considered a regular article.
  • Comment and Reply Exchange: Comments are written in response to a published article and should be submitted within 2 years of the publication date of the original article (although the editor can waive this limit in extenuating circumstances). The author of the original article has the opportunity to write a reply. These exchanges are published together.
