When a researcher submits a ms for AAEM editing I will email a request with the title, abstract and word count to all volunteers, and assign the manuscript to the first person to volunteer. AAEM editors then work independently with the author via email to resolve any questions about the manuscript, and deliver the edited manuscript directly to the author. Ideally, the edited manuscript should be delivered to the author within about 2 weeks. Please let me know when the final edited manuscript is delivered, so that I can update the AAEM files. 

AAEM aims to keep administration to a minimum. To ensure traceability in case of any later questions, you should keep accurate records of the manuscripts you handle and their “received on” and “delivered on” dates.
