I am writing to authors that have submitted or are in the process of submitting a manuscript for the special issue

of ICs based on manuscripts presented at the ASA 2009 meetings. For the ones that have already submitted

through manuscript central and did not follow the instructions attached that specify

6. Under "Manuscript Type," select "Special Issue Paper," fill in other required fields, and click on

"save & continue"

Please send me an email with the manuscript number. If you did not mark "special issue paper" the manuscript did not

arrived to the editors of the special issue and we do not have access to it as we do not know the number.

For the ones submitting until october 3rd, please follow carefully the instructions below.

Otherwise your manuscript will not be allocated to the editors of the special issue but to the editors of the journal and will

not be considered for the special issue.

Please keep in mind this information when submitting your manuscript.
