International management and information science publisher, Emerald, has announced the release of JADE, an online article submission and peer review system. Developed to ensure the fastest and highest quality in electronic publishing, JADE is designed to provide a single, simplified, end-to-end content management solution for Emerald journal authors and editors. Scheduled for activation in February, JADE will also capture author copyright assignment to Emerald using a digital signature software solution, allowing access to the copyright status of all articles and non-article content at the click of a mouse. JADE creates a homepage for authors via individual registration and allows them to track the progress of their articles through the publication process. It offers access to a wide range of author resources from the Emerald Literati service.
