In this force major situation that caused moving MARSS2020 to the next year, MARSS Organization team will implement the following approach, to recognize the authors’ and the reviewers’ performance: MARSS2020 peer reviewers have almost finished their work and will complete the reviewing by March 30. The authors will be informed on the paper status by March 31, at the latest. Accepted papers can be re-submitted to MARSS2021 starting in October 2020, with necessary revisions according to the reviewers’ comments and possibly extended by some new results. This category of papers (accepted for MARSS2020 and re-submitted to MARSS2021) will receive a special treatment at MARSS2021: Each paper will be assigned to the same reviewers who will be advised to re-check the paper (for a formal reason) focusing on the revisions and new results. Normally the paper will be re-accepted for MARSS2021.
