We’ve decided to extend the deadline for the special issue of Research Policy on open innovation. We had requests for additional time (being the end of summer vacation for most) and also looked at how the submissions will be processed, and decided we could provide authors additional time without slowing our review of the papers.
The old deadline was 11:59pm PDT on Friday Aug. 31. The new deadline is 11:59pm GMT on Sunday Sept 2.
We cannot grant any extensions beyond that time, because the review process begins Monday morning (London time) and we’re on a very tight schedule to complete multiple rounds of reviews and publish a special issue in 2013.
