AES Journal Launches New Management System

AES Journal

As a result of considerable dissatisfaction with the old Journal management system, AES has now switched to a new system based on Aries Editorial Manager, which offers an improvement in functionality and reliability. All existing users' login credentials have been moved to the new system, but papers that started out in the old system will continue to be managed there. Eventually the old system will be retired.

The Journal has also clarified its Open Access Policy.
