Editor's Notes

  • Researchers communicate differently to other people. Central to this is the social contract of science.
    We agree to disseminate our work widely, allowing others to validate it and build upon it.
    The best and arguably only way to do this effectively is OA, so we are an OA publisher.
    If you don’t do this, it can be termed scientific malpractice, and it applies not only to results.
