Whether it’s part of their everyday workflow model or only occasionally used for special issues, EM’s Proposals Menu is a convenient way for journals to invite submissions from pre-selected Authors. The option to work with submissions on an invitation-only basis drastically cuts down time spent in screening submissions and allows for detailed issue planning.
Lippincott Williams & William’s (LWW) Current Opinion series, comprised of two dozen journals, all make use of the Proposals menu, and some exclusively work with invited submissions. See Current Opinion in Neurology‘s submissions site here: http://www.edmgr.com/CONR.
