Another step into the digital world has been taken by the AAPG BULLETIN, which now offers an online submittal, review and editing system.

The BULLETIN's Rapid Review System now digitally accepts papers for consideration, allows reviewers to review, editors to edit, authors to follow their papers through the process, all online from a central, easily accessible Web site.

"Experience at other scientific journals suggests that this capability should knock off several months of the submit-to-print turnaround time for a manuscript," said AAPG Elected Editor John Lorenz, who added that the system "will contribute significantly to solving the chronic headache of publication backlogs.

"We already have seen reduced shipping and reproduction costs, quicker responses from reviews and improved reliability in getting manuscripts between far-flung physical locations," Lorenz said.

The BULLETIN will continue to accept mailed-in hardcopy manuscripts via the traditional process without prejudice. However, most of these will be converted to electronic format and entered into the system at AAPG headquarters.

"This is the wave of the future," Lorenz said, "and we expect/hope that the preponderance of submissions will be through this system within a year."
