New Semantic Web journal manuscript review system

We happily announce that we have now integrated the complete review process for the Semantic Web journal into the website of the journal. This change will not only improve the workflow for authors, reviewers, and editors alike, it will also enable further enhancements of the site which we plan to do in the future.
