Deputy Editor of Allergy:
American Journal of Rhinology & Allergy utilizes an online system of manuscript submission, editing and review. This system allows authors to submit their work online and check on the status of the review process. To access the electronic system, visit http://ajr.msubmit.net. This technology requires all manuscript files be uploaded separately as follows:
Copyright release forms and conflict of interest forms must be sent via mail or fax. Forms may be downloaded: Publishing Forms (pdf file). If figures are scanned, please also forward the original (glossy) figures to the editorial offices. These will produce a higher quality output in the printing process. Electronic submission is a four step process that is described step-by-step on the http://ajr.msubmit.net site. American Journal of Rhinology & Allergy will no longer accommodate the submission of paper manuscripts unless prior permission is granted via the editorial office. Please contact the editorial offices with any questions regarding the submission process.
