If compile procedure was successful, the author is forwarded a message containing a manuscript number and saying that the manuscript was received and that it is going to be refereed. The Executive Editor sends the paper to the author-selected Editor (if his name was checked in filled MRSej e-mail template), and the abstract to all members of the board.
