It is with great pleasure that we announce the launch of online submission and refereeing for the Journal of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy. This development is part of our continuing commitment to improve the service offered by the Journal. Submissions to the JAC have risen substantially over recent years and we are keenly aware of our responsibility to provide decisions on submitted manuscripts as quickly as possible. We believe the online submission and refereeing system is a crucial development in our quest to improve the Journal’s efficiency in providing both timely decisions and publication.

The website is officially open from 1st May 2002 for new submissions to the Journal. From this date we will be encouraging all authors to submit any new manuscripts using the website.

In order to submit a paper all you have to do is ensure that you have an account. Please note that if you have been the corresponding author on a paper or refereed for JAC since January 2000, and you supplied an e-mail address, it is likely that we will have already created an account for you; you should check for an existing account at the log in screen. If no account exists please follow the instructions on the log in page to create one
