The current volume remains open-ended during its publication period, papers being added as they become available, until the end of the publication period.
eCM has decided to highlight the visibility of published papers thought a graphical abstract. Every six months, the best graphical abstract will be awarded with a free submission (valid for the following 12 months) to eCM Journal and used as cover of next eCM issue.
