STVR Policy on Special Issues

Special issues are valuable to a journal, but it is important that the qualitative differences between conference and journal papers be maintained. It is easy to invite papers that look good in a conference but do not really translate to a journal paper. It is also easy to recommend good changes to an invited paper, but if the authors do not make the changes it becomes a little awkward.
