Accepted papers are published immediately.  It is expected that in many cases, manuscripts published in these categories will form the foundation for more complete works subsequently to be submitted to other journals.  In all cases, submissions are restricted to seven printed pages exclusive of references, appendices, tables and figures, and must be in PDF format. EB will also publish letters to the editor, announcements of conferences, and research announcements.
