Enclosed please find three files, Call for papers, HPP Guidelines and Statement on establishing HPP guidelines. Regarding the JPR SI in 2016, there is a hard deadline for manuscript submission, April 30, 2016. From our experiences during the past 3 years, keeping the deadline became the key issue for 2016. All of our Co-editors will comply with this deadline and execute manuscript management accordingly. We will keep you informed when there is any updated note on the guidelines (e.g., PE1 status upon adoption of new guidelines).
In particular, we would like to thank Bill Hancock for his outstanding services for JPR as EIC as well as for C-HPP as Co-Chair and EC members. He will also be serving one of Co-editor for JPR 2016 SI. We also greatly appreciate the ACS publishers (Drs. Jonathan Sweedler, Antonella Mazur and their colleagues) for their continuous support for JPR's C-HPP SI publication in 2016 and beyond.
