The final stage of this is to complete the checklist and ensure that all papers have removed information that might identify the author(s) and that figures and diagrams are in the document, the abstract is attached and all necessary files are in the system.
Once a paper submission is considered acceptable the managing editor completes the manuscript checklist and assigns the paper within the Scholar One system to one of the editors.
