Electronic processing of IJM papers

This page describes the system of processing papers electronically that is being implemented at the Illinois Journal of Mathematics. The system is modelled after one described by Princeton Computer Scientist Andrew Appel in "How to edit a journal by e-mail", Journal of Scholarly Publishing 27(2), January 1996, 82-99. (The software implementation, though, is different, using Perl instead of awk as programming language, and pine instead of mh for processing email.)

This page gives an overview of the system. A technical description is given on a separate page.

Requirements

For the system to work efficiently, all parties involved in the editorial processing must be able to easily handle electronically transmitted files. For the most part, this has not proven to be a problem, and the trend is clearly towards an all electronic form of communication.
