Have you ever wished that there was a convenient way for co-authors to acknowledge their participation in a manuscript? Now they can! Appropriate configuration of Editorial Manager triggers an automatic email to all listed co-authors when the manuscript is submitted. Co-authors can then confirm their participation and agreement to journal policy by clicking on a “deep link” in the email. The manuscript record is updated with each confirmation so that the journal office can quickly identify and pursue any missing confirmations.
An additional configuration option can be used to require co-author registration- thereby allowing access to manuscript information including editorial status.
