February 22, 2012: Payment Policy

Editorial Express will soon provide a new feature that will allow authors to use any balances they have accumulated through reviewing or submission fee refunds to pay for new submission fees. We look forward to being able to offer this functionality to our authors and reviewers. In support of this, and to reduce the transactions costs to reviewers, authors, and RFS staff of check-cutting, signing, mailing, and depositing, as of 3/1/2012 we are instituting a system where we will automatically issue checks for referee reports and submission fee refunds only when the individual’s balance crosses $700. If a payment is due to you and you would like to receive a check before your balance reaches $700, just email Jaclyn Einstein to have your check processed.
