COVID-19 and impact on peer review

As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.

About the SIAAIC

The Italian Society of Allergy, Asthma and Clinical Immunology (SIAAIC) is a scientific society strongly represented on the national territory with more than 650 active members working in university structures, hospital departments and territorial outpatients' clinics.

The main aim of SIAAIC is to improve allergy and clinical immunology as a discipline, through integrated actions of specialistic and post-specialistic education, promotion of knowledge in allergy and clinical immunology, and support of patients' organizations. These aspects are accomplished by giving the opportunity to its members (a third of which are Junior Members, under 35 years of age) to attend several educational events, participate in clinical/epidemiological research and patients-targeted informative events.

Moreover, many active SIAAIC members are worldwide well-known scientists and contribute to increase the knowledge in allergy and clinical immunology into the international scientific community.
