Main language »American English« for scientific articles

As of issue 1/2018, in all scientific articles American English will be declared as main language.

The reviewing process can still be done in German language; all German-speaking articles need to be translated before publication by the authors. We will support young authors with this translation. Extended Abstracts will still be published in German.

With this procedure we aim to be listed in international databases.
