Submission Manager is an online system for accepting and managing written submissions for a magazine or press. It’s easy to use and flexible enough to work with any submission and reading process. Submission Manager allows you to:
- accept or reject submissions individually or en masse through your web site
- easily manage the genres that you accept
- control the number of submissions an author can make to your publication
- manage reading periods
- track submissions automatically
- customize the front end and back end appearance: all colors and fonts can be changed to work with your web design and your logo can appear on all pages
Staff have the ability to:
- search submissions and contacts in a variety of ways
- instantly view all submissions by a given writer
- assign submissions to editors and readers
- view all submissions using their web browser
- create standard and personalized email rejections
Top-level editors have the same privileges as staff, and can also:
- control who on their staff can accept/reject submissions
- sort and assign submissions by genre
- see which staff members have which submissions
This user-friendly system allows submitters to log their own address information into the database and log into their account to see the status of their submission. Upon submitting, all submitters receive automatic emails confirming that a submission has been received.
