A statement from Editor-in-Chief Paul Goode on supporting displaced scholars

To authors and reviewers in all areas affected by Russia's war: the editorial team at Communist and Post-Communist Studies understands that you have more pressing concerns right now than reviews and manuscript revisions. But your scholarship doesn't have to become another casualty of the war, and we want to help.

For anyone affected by the war, we will accommodate extensions of any length for manuscript revisions on request. For scholars in the war zone who may not be able to get in touch, please be assured that we will not abandon your submissions for lack of contact.

If you agreed to a review but are no longer able to complete it, let us know (if possible) and we will re-assign it. Don't worry if you receive a review request and cannot manage it. A response is appreciated, but otherwise we will automatically re-assign it after two weeks.

Stay safe, stay strong.
