Some announcements regarding the editorial management online system. 

- From January 2018 all the communication with the editorial office must be performed using this system. No emails will be replied unless they are related to issues with the system (problems uploading a manuscript, for example). The System Manager will reply to all these questions but cannot answer any question related to manuscript status. These queries should be directed to the corresponding section editor (review) or copyeditor (Copyediting - Production), who you will be able to contact using the "Add discussion" function, inside the corresponding editorial stage. 

- The email is no longer active. Please bear in mind that all email sent to this address will not be replied as from January 1st 2018.

- Important announcement for authors who submitted articles using the email If your paper was received by the editorial office prior to December 2017, then it was assigned a manuscript code of the sort MS-xx-YY where xx is an internal control number and YY is the year when the article started its workflow and we will keep in touch using our previous management system. For papers submitted between December 2017 and July 2018 we could retrieve most of them, uploaded them in the system, and authors were notified accordingly. However, if you don´t have a code of this sort or you were not notified of your paper being uploaded into this system, your article has not been received - thus it is not being processed. Please resubmit your article using this online system if interested in publishing it in our journal. We sincerely apologize for the inconveniences.
