Special Issue Paradigm


There is a saying- "Science has as many wits as there are people capable of seizing it."

This axiom is a complete fit when we talk about special issues of journals. A Special Issue is not only a collection of papers on a particular theme within the scope of the journals but also a deep analysis of different untold aspects about the chosen subject.

Peertechz’s special issue of journals is an insight of your knowledge frontier and a record for your research progress. Moreover, if an author proposes a special issue on any Peertechz’s journals, he has an opportunity to become a lead guest editor. Therefore the authors, researchers, doctors and anybody with scientific writing skills grab this prospect to propose a Special Issue as the Lead Guest Editor with the hot topic which you are interested in.


A special issue works for several purposes, such as

  • It offers a well-defined location for papers that relate to a common theme
  • It acts as promoter for a developing field by providing highly visible forum for the topic
  • It encourages authors to submit high quality work by providing them with a focused review process and publication schedule.
  • It promotes clarity of the subject, experimental soundness and advances in knowledge


A special issue delivers a number of benefits, when an author choses a ‘hot scientific topic’ under the scope of the journal focusing on specific themes, such as

  • Generating publicity and raising awareness of the scope of topics covered in the journal
  • Encouraging  new authors to submit their work
  • Attracting new readers and new subscribers to the journal
  • Boosting downloads and citations
  • An opportunity to experiment with innovative or unusual content
  • Publishing with a group of elegant editors
  • Encouraging new ideas and avenues for research
  • Helping authors to develop effective research proposals
  • Broadening the scope of the journal
