After the first half year that JCHS is live, we have already received 20 manuscripts. This shows that there is demand for an open-source community-based journal in the field. Four papers on a variety of interesting topics have already been published, together with their reviews. This number of submissions also means that the first statistics of our editorial process are known, as given in the picture. We are aiming at decent timelines in the editorial process, focussing on a high quality of the papers, allocating time to the reviewers to contemplate the contents, but without exceptionally long reviewing periods.
It seems that the 2021 volume of the journal is well underway to become a success.
