It takes about twice as long. But that isn’t the point. They are claiming it makes it easier for writers, but it doesn’t actually as it is often still very confusing for writers to submit to publications even when they are already writers. I often have to sent writers this set of instructions to help them figure it out.

If they really wanted to make this processes smoother they would improve the whole workflow, not just remove parts of it.
