Journal of Cave and Karst Studies
ONLINE SUBMISSION SYSTEM
The Journal of Cave and Karst Studies accepts all manuscript submissions via the PeerTrack Editorial Manager, a web-based system for on-line submission. Reviewers will also complete and submit their reviews online using the same management system. The system is fully integrated allowing for electronic uploads, database management and e-mail notifications to keep the process moving smoothly and sustainably for an easier, faster, and less expensive publication process. Manuscripts, CDs, and USB drives no longer need to be mailed around the world nor will there be problems with overfull e-mail boxes resulting from very large graphics files.
PeerTrack is available from any computer, operating system, and platform anywhere in the world with an internet connection. This arrangement has allowed for increased international submissions to all North American-based earth-science journals that have adopted web-based submission systems. Access by authors, editors, or reviewers can continue even while traveling, so delays should become a thing of the past.
Authors submitting a manuscript to the Journal of Cave and Karst Studies can access the system at the link below and will need to first establish a login username and password. Once logged in, just ollow the prompts to upload your manuscript, figures, and tables. The web site will then create a PDF of the manuscript with line numbers for the author to review and approve. Once approved by the author, the manuscript will then be assigned an associate editor and the review process will be initiated.
