JPHiA will temporarily pause the receipt of new submissions


Dear authors/submitters,

For a few months now, we have been struggling with several different problems in handling the many articles submitted. These issues have overloaded our systems and are subsequently causing delays in our peer-review process.

We have identified the main cause of the issue and are currently working on clearing the backlog. In order to facilitate that process, the journal will pause receipt of new submissions as of 01 September 2023. This will ensure timely processing of all manuscripts currently in peer-review.

We understand that this may cause inconvenience to our authors/submitters, for which we apologize.  However, we assure you that everything will soon be back to normal. Going forward, we aim to ensure that you have a better experience navigating through our submission and review process. 

Once again all our apologies,
the Editors-in-Chief
