New submission system at PLoS
I've heard they were planning on moving to a new paper submission system at PLoS for a while, but now it seems to be finally happening, starting with PLoS ONE.
This is really good news. The existing submission system at PLoS is really cumbersome. I seriously considered submitting elsewhere halfway through the submission of my latest paper just because of how annoyed I got with the web interface. I know, that is a silly reason, and I did submit to PLoS Genetics and was happy with everything except the submission system.
I swore, though, that I wouldn't go through that process again and wouldn't submit to a PLoS journal unless I could get a co-author to do the actual submission. Now I have to try the new system to see how it is, and I already have a paper in mind...
