Update: Now you can submit papers to PhysicsOverflow here!

Good news! PolarKernel has now completed the first phase of our Reviews section: The submission type.

The submission is a new post type which is like a question except that:

• There are two voting criteria: Originality and Accuracy. The total score of the post is calculated from these two factors which you can read more about in the FAQ.
• Multiple authors can be added to the post by an administrator. It can also be authorless.
• It is called a submission and its answers are called reviews.
• Each submission's body has an unremovable piece of text (we know about the typo and will correct it soon) at the top containing a link to the paper and some instructions.

You can see two example submissions with attached reviews (thanks Lubos for letting us take content from your blog!) below:

You can also look at the activity page to see how submissions are displayed in question lists.

PolarKernel has also developed a plugin which can be used to submit a paper from an ArXiV URL. The plugin is currently available only to super-administrators but will be available for all once the reviews category actually goes up (automatically graduating PhysicsOverflow).

## What next?

The next part of the development of the reviews section would contain:

• Assigning reputation to authors based on submission score.
• Changing the maximum category depth to four.
• Mass-importing all ArXiV physics papers.
• Making a plugin for daily imports of new ArXiV physics papers.

That's it for now, and I will again link to the example submissions:
