Firstly, I hope everyone is keeping well in the current crisis. As you know, the COVID-19 pandemic is impacting many areas of our lives, and sadly the Journal is no exception. I have been informed by our publishers, Taylor and Francis, that with great reluctance they have taken the decision to stop printing journals from the 10th of April until further notice.
This is due to a number of factors including disruption to supply chains as well as a significant number of institutions that receive journals being closed for business and no longer accepting post. They and I apologise for how this will affect IMI members, and want to reassure you that online access to the journal is not affected. The journal will continue to publish online to the usual issue schedules, there will just be a delay to it arriving in print.
They hope to resume printing in May and, at the point that they do start to print again, the print issues that would have been dispatched during this stoppage will be sent out as normal. They are keeping the situation under close review, especially with regard to public health concerns, and will keep us updated with any changes.
All the best and stay safe,
Editor in Chief
