Dear Valuable Authors and Reviewers

Greetings from the Journal of Contemporary Urban Affairs editorial team

As you may know, the global COVID-19 pandemic has interrupted our lives and has created innumerable of challenges for us all as we try and adjust to new working arrangements while still continuing our professional duties. We understand that authors may need additional time to revise and resubmit manuscripts and reviewers may need more time to complete peer reviews. Please know that we want to be flexible and if you need additional time to complete your work, just let us know and we will work with you. We also understand that some of you may have to decline invitations to review for us during this time and if that is the case, we understand and hope that there will be opportunities for you to review for Journal of Contemporary Urban Affairs after the crisis has passed.

Please take care and stay safe…

On behalf of Editorial Team

Dr Hourakhsh Ahmad Nia (Editor in chief)
