The Manuscript Processing System (MPS) is a web-based manuscript submission and tracking system developed by Bentham Science Publishers for efficient, fast and cost effective processing of submitted manuscripts. MPS has been designed with the objective to ensure step-by-step online processing and tracking of manuscripts for authors, editors and the publisher; from submission to acceptance and final reproduction.
MPS is a user friendly system that can be conveniently operated. The system allows rapid and easy submission of original and revised manuscripts and indicates their status throughout the submission process. Authors accessing the system for the first time will be required to Register themselves online at https://bentham.manuscriptpoint.com and create a MPS account to submit a paper to a particular journal from the available list in the registration form.
Once registered, authors will not be required to REGISTER again. They may submit another manuscript to the same journal or any other Bentham Science journal using the same USER ID and PASSWORD.
The Author can type the keyword in the search field to search the relevant journal an indicated by an arrow.
Each manuscript submission will be followed by a confirmation email to the corresponding author. Authors can log onto MPS at any time to view the status of their manuscripts. The system will notify the corresponding author by e-mail once a decision has been made on the peer-reviewed manuscript.
