    Different publications use different submission systems. If you're having difficulty with your submission - first go back and read the instructions carefully - line-by-line. It can often be very easy to miss a step. Once the documents are uploaded you'll want to make sure you view and approve them - all journals that I've published in produce PDF documents so you will know what the reviewers will see.

    If this is your first submission, I would suggest you go through the submission process with your supervisor present if at all possible - an experienced hand can save a lot of headaches.

    And when in trouble, you can always contact the journal staff. Chances are you're not the first person who's run into whatever problem you're having.
