The following email came through the group-pub-forum this morning.

Resignation of the Editorial Board of Journal of Group Theory

Dear Colleagues,

On 20 October 2010 the entire Editorial Board of the Journal of
Group Theory submitted their resignation to the publisher, De
Gruyter, with effect from 31 December 2010. This unanimous action
followed the resignation of the Managing Editor of the journal,
Professor John Wilson, on October 14, 2010.

The editors stopped processing any papers submitted after 14
October 2010 but will continue to work, up to 31 December 2010,
with manuscripts submitted to them before 14 October 2010.

We thank all authors and reviewers who worked with us for the
benefit of mathematics.

    quoting from L.Kramer’s page:
    The publisher also planned to install an electronic submission system
    that has been found inflexible by other mathematical journals.

    I wonder what this is?
    I recently saw an Elsevier journal having a submission system definitely lifted off arXiv.org, forcing people to submit papers as LaTeX source…
