Please save this information and do not share your user name and password. After setting up your account and logging in, you will reach a "Dashboard" specific to you. The Dashboard contains a section: "My Manuscripts" that gives a quick-view of all manuscripts and artwork submitted, waiting to be completed, with decisions, etc. There is a link to create a new submission.
You may log into the system at any time to submit a manuscript or artwork or to check on the status of previously submitted material. To submit artwork or manuscripts for submission, click on: "Click here to submit a new manuscript."
