This is an online manuscript processing system, where you can submit articles and track their progress up to proof stage. If you are a new author, you will need to register – this is a simple, self-explanatory two stage process. A manuscript acknowledgement number will be emailed to the corresponding author within 24 hours.
First-time users: Please click on the word "Register" in the navigation bar at the top of the page and enter the requested information. Upon successful registration, you will be sent an e-mail with instructions to verify your registration. NOTE: If you received an e-mail from us with an assigned user ID and password, DO NOT REGISTER AGAIN. Simply use that information to login. Usernames and passwords may be changed after registration (see instructions below).
