As an editor, I would like to see high-quality proceedings articles properly reviewed, improved, and archived in a journal. As an author, I would like my proceedings article perfected, widely published, and archived for future reference. However, there is always the issue of double publication. The digital library can change that. Once a proceedings article is accepted for journal publication, it can be removed from the proceedings volume on the digitallibrary and replaced with a pointer to the newly published journal article. To do this, we need the author to identify the proceedings article when it is submitted to JM3. As with any regular submission, we will review the manuscript rigorously, and if the submitted article is not journal material, it will be rejected right away. Our experience is that even though we accept submissions that are identical to the proceedings article, the final accepted version is always improved after going through the peer-review process and thus is a different and much better article. Then why not improve the manuscript before submission? The author definitely has the liberty to do that. However, there are many advantages to submitting the article to both a proceedings and a journal simultaneously if the proceedings and the journal are published by the same organization: (1) If the author has journal submission in mind, he would prepare the manuscript much more rigorously, resulting in a better proceedings paper. (2) The journal receives the manuscript earlier. (3) The author does not have to go through publication approval at his organization two times. Of course, the printed proceedings cannot be changed. We ask the author to change his/her own reference from the proceedings article to the journal article once it is accepted for publication in JM3.
