Getting Started

Each journal's Manuscript Central site has a unique Web address (URL). Typically, you are given that address in the invitation or invitation-response e-mail sent by the journal. If the URL is hyperlinked, simply click the link within the e-mail. You can also enter the web address in the address field of your browser and press the Enter key on your keyboard. The journal's Log In page opens.

Access to the journal site may be provided in one of two ways:

1. The journal may create your account for you and e-mail you with instructions on how to log in and set your User ID and password.
2. Some journals allow their users to create their own accounts. If yours does, you will see a Create Account link in the top right corner of the page. Follow the step-by-step instructions for creating your account.

To keep your account information current, use the Edit Account link in the upper right corner (Create Account changes to Edit Account after your account is created). You can also change your User ID and password here.


• Please retain your new password information. Manuscript Central will not send your password via e-mail.
• You can log out of Manuscript Central at any time by clicking Log Out at the top right corner of the page you are on. You will be returned to the Log In page.
• Forgot Your Password? For security reasons, Manuscript Central will not e-mail your current password. Instead, by entering your e-mail address in the Password Help field and clicking , the system will send you an e-mail containing instructions for resetting your password.
