Abstract: Our publisher, Ariesdue, implemented a new tool for submitting manuscripts online, through the EJPD website (www.ejpd.eu), which will help the editor in chief in keeping up with the flow of articles, but also enable authors to know when their manuscripts are being reviewed. In fact, many authors frequently write asking about the status of their papers. From now on, e-mails will be automatically generated to inform authors that their submission was successful and also they will be able to check the status of the review. Moreover, the exchange of e-mails with bulky files between me and the referees will be over, because manuscripts are now all located in the dashboard, and not on my personal computer.
In this way information is immediate, more clear, transparent and, possibly, error-free.
For these reasons I invite all authors who sent their manuscripts during the last year, but did not see it published yet, to send them again, adding in the title page the old EJPD code and the correspondence we exchanged, in order to speed up publication and save the editorial job done. If not, they will receive a new automatic code and undergo a new editorial process of their article.
Please, do not send manuscripts to my e-mail anymore, but only upload them at:
As for this issue, you can see that the contents is published only in the back cover: this was not a mistake, but is due to lack of space: we could not publish more than 15 works. I made a point of publishing only articles no longer than five pages, which means that research papers should not exceed 15,000 characters, with no more than 8 figures and 4 tables. I trust your kind cooperation in this regard.
