The online system offers authors easy straightforward log-in and submission.
Authors may submit their manuscripts in any of a wide range of ﬁle formats
[such as Word, WordPerfect, RTF, TXT, and LaTeX for manuscripts; TIFF, GIF,
JPEG, EPS, PPT, and Postscript for ﬁgures (artwork)]. The system offers a help
feature, should an author encounter any difﬁculty when submitting. Authors may
check the status of their manuscripts at any time throughout the refereeing process.
We are pleased to make available this state-of-the-art system, another service
enhancement provided to authors. Papers currently in the traditional system will
continue their review process there. However, we urge all authors to submit
their new manuscripts to the journal via this web-based online system.
Authors, editors, and referees will save postage costs and all will enjoy
speedier review times with the elimination of manuscript and disk mailing – not
only at submission, but also throughout the refereeing/review process.
We have always invited the scientiﬁc and professional community to submit
their original papers to this excellent journal. Now we invite the community to
submit their papers via the journal’s online system, which provides users with
convenience, speed, and cost savings throughout the submission and refereeing
