What’s New

  • Accepted Manuscripts: To expedite the dissemination of our authors’ work, we are now posting accepted manuscripts! An accepted manuscript is the version of an article that has been accepted for publication that includes changes suggested during submission and peer review. It still requires publisher contributions such as copyediting, formatting, technical enhancements, and pagination. Once those modifications are complete, the final published article will replace the accepted manuscript version.

The interactive usage map below covers usage from the time that this journal went live on the Scholar Commons platform in March 2015.
