Anyone who regularly writes or reviews for the MJA will know that, halfway through this year, we launched ourselves into the world of electronic submission and peer review. If the editors were catapulted kicking and screaming into the orbit of our new system, we can only imagine how our contributors feel. However, as we all adjust to the thin atmosphere and weightless state up here, we have to admit that it is a fine thing to have all the manuscripts “virtually” at our fingertips. Like astronauts viewing the world from afar, we can see the overall shape of things and can zoom down on the detail at the stroke of a key. Hopefully, this small step for the editors will be a giant step for the speed and efficiency of the MJA.
