TIM Review Topic Model
Please examine the topics of the TIM Review issues published in the last couple of years and see if your topic could be positioned within the varieties of themes addressed by the different issues.

When writing your article, keep the following points in mind:
• Clearly explain the problem you are trying to solve.

• Demonstrate your depth of understanding for the topic, and that you have considered its benefits, possible outcomes, and applicability.
• Write in a formal, analytical style. Third-person voice is recommended; first-person voice may also be acceptable depending on the perspective of your article.
