The author reflects on the changing process of submitting manuscripts to the journal "Monthly Weather Review." In particular, the author addresses the digital age in regards to manuscript submissions, and the gains the journal has made in transitioning its own processes. The article also addresses personnel changes at the managerial level of the periodical. An overview of the journal's manuscript review process is also discussed.
