Dear all,

This is to let you know about the following changes with respect to
the submission procedures at MIND, CULTURE, AND ACTIVITY.

1. Those of you who have submitted in the past know that until about
2 years ago, the journal had a paper-only submission system, which
required you to submit three printed versions of your manuscript.
2. To speed up the process of reviewing and to be able to serve
authors better with feedback by means of marked up PDF files of their
articles, we went electronic about 2 years ago, but our system was
entirely based on email, with a database that we kept on personal
computers and the university server. We have been able to speed up
review times and are close to the 3 months that I wanted to attain as
a turn around, though in some cases, because we have to look for
reviewers, which sometimes takes up to 2 weeks because some decline
reviewing a manuscript, and then getting the reviews back, which
involves sometimes a delay.

3. NOW, there is yet another change as we are moving to complete
online submissions. You no longer send articles to my email address
or any paper versions, but you submit directly to the URL:
which becomes the hub for our editorial activities. Most of you will
be familiar with submitting and reviewing, as using online submission
has been implemented by other journals for some time.

I look forward to receiving manuscripts from you through this new
system once it goes live---as Taylor and Francis tells me it will be
tomorrow JAN 02, 2008----

Have a successful new year,

Your MCA editor-in-chief,


Wolff-Michael Roth, Editor-in-Chief
