The COVID-19 global pandemic has created new operating and funding challenges for Stability Journal. To address these challenges, I have made the decision to temporarily halt new submissions to the journal. The journal website will remain active and all published material will continue to be available for download. This pause will allow the team at Stability to reimagine how we operate so we can continue to serve as a platform for world class open access academic publishing. We intend to resume accepting submissions in the fall.
