New Layout for the Website


Dear Colleagues, Authors and Readers,

We are pleased to announce the launch of our new website and editorial system. The new website and editorial system are more intuitive and also optimized for smaller screens (such as smartphones and tablets).

The upgrade of the Open Journal System (OJS) from version 2.4 to 3.1 brings vast improvements, such as enhancing the user interface and navigation systems. A key advantage is the more intuitive workflow, which makes the system easier to manage for authors, reviewers, and also editors and guest editors. Another key advantage is the possibility to implement several languages. We will translate the website’s English-language contents in the journals into other official languages (German, French, and Italian).

We are very thankful to the HOPE team, who have implemented the new version following months of diligent work and dedication. The URL of the journals remains, of course, the same.
