Dear all, 

American Mineralogist's ³treat² to everyone is an improved, easier
manuscript submission upload tool for authors! And ‹ this is a very good
time to submit a paper. To upload your paper, now you can drag and drop a
bunch of files, a zip file (that opens itself), or use the ³dropbox² or
³google² icons. Or mix and match. It is very flexible! Or use the ³Browse²
button to your files, that is fine too. Once the files are uploaded, the
system prompts you with pop-ups and pull-downs to provide the information
needed. It is much more intuitive for the user. With the same tabs and
sub-tabs as before, but now running compactly on the left side and far
more visible and clear, it also acts as a checklist as well.

Here¹s a link to our new highlights handout about the process:

all that is needed is a picture.

Here¹s the full Am Min information, with Information for Authors on the
pull-down menu: http://www.minsocam.org/msa/AmMin/AmMineral.html

We are here to help, peer_review at minsocam.org for submission questions
about the database.

Thank you everyone for your support of American Mineralogist.
