The Gong!

The Gong is awarded to publishers who need a wake-up call on payment; and this month it goes to legal eagles Sweet & Maxwell and Lexis-Nexis (formerly Butterworths). They've installed new payment software. And, yes, it's taking six or seven weeks, and counting, to spit out cheques.

To calculate the interest and compensation on late payments, see www. interest.html
