Electronic article submission
Some of you might have noticed that gradually more publishers adopt electronic submission for their journals. Authors need to register and create an account for this kind of service. In our field JDoc from Emerald launched an e-submission service for its authors a few months ago called JADE. Today I found out that JASIST from Willy publishing has also adopted an e-submission method. it's service called ScholarOne. The advantage of e-submission services is that authors can track their articles' status while they are being processed by the publishers. They can see online at which stage their articles are (being reviewed, etc.). one year ago it was a pain to submit an article to JASIST. auhtors had to send 3 hard copies plus and e-version. but now it's been made much easier with ScholarOne.
