Authors experience loss of time and effort with their manuscript is rejected by a journal and they have to repeat the submission process on one or more subsequent journals. To address this issue, the Manuscript Exchange Common Approach (MECA) has been developed to deliver a common transfer approach that can be widely adopted by numerous industry vendors.


Editorial Manager version 15.1 introduces a new method of import and export that conforms to MECA standards. Contact your Aries Account Coordinator for details or read more about MECA.
