New Online Submission and Peer Review System for PAC

During 2004, an online submission and peer-review system was implemented for Pure and Applied Chemistry. The new Web-based workflow for manuscript handling will enable Scientific Editor James R. Bull to implement peer review of manuscripts from IUPAC-sponsored conferences, which was formerly a discretionary option of the conference organizers. The system also provides support to John W. Lorimer and Bernado J. Herold, editors of IUPAC Recommendations and Technical Reports and respectively chairman and secretary of the Interdivisional Committee on Terminology, Nomenclature and Symbols.

ScholarOne® Manuscript Central™ is the system IUPAC has chosen for PAC. ScholarOne, Inc. is a leading provider for online submission, review, and tracking of scholarly manuscripts. During the first half of 2004, it signed 17 new clients representing 76 unique journals. These journals join the diverse ScholarOne community, whose titles receive annual submissions ranging from 100 to 5 000 submissions per year and cover a broad spectrum of disciplines, including the humanities, life sciences, engineering, computer science, and social sciences. Presently, Manuscript Central has over 1.1 million global registered users and processes more than 27 000 manuscript submissions per month.

For PAC, the system was configured to work on invitation only. Authors of conference papers or technical reports are invited to review the instructions for authors and—if it applies—request an invitation to submit manuscripts online
