Editage® Offers Ease of Journal Manuscript Submission to Authors through Aries’ Manuscript Ingest Functionality for Editorial Manager®

January 21, 2015 (Philadelphia, PA, USA) - Editage, a leading provider of editorial and publication support services for the global research community, announced its commitment to providing a seamless manuscript submission experience for authors by becoming the first to adopt Aries’ manuscript “ingest” functionality for Editorial Manager (EM), the world’s leading online manuscript submission and peer review system. This partnership between Editage and Aries promises to bring Editage’s 70,000+ authors closer to the community of more than 6,000 scholarly journals using EM. As part of the collaboration, Editage will soon be able to directly transfer manuscripts on behalf of its authors to participating journal EM submission sites and simplify the manuscript submission workflow for both authors and journals alike.

Authors today use a range of manuscript services to assist with document preparation, including bibliography management, collaborative authoring tools, language polishing, and journal selection services. However, the process of submitting manuscripts to journals is often time-consuming and unfamiliar for researchers. The addition of the manuscript ingest functionality to EM promises Editage’s scholarly authors a much simplified and hassle-free submission experience. Aside from the time saved and the ease of submission, access to an expansive set of journals across scientific disciplines and subscription models is of immense value to authors.

In the publisher community, providing authors with a smooth manuscript submission experience has been a priority for a long time. Now with simple manuscript transfer possible from author support service providers like Editage to journals using EM, journals can expect increased submissions. The ingest service also permits use of ORCID identifiers to ensure that transferred submissions are accurately mapped to prior author registration records.

On the occasion of the announcement, Donald Samulack, President, U.S. Operations, Editage, commented, “For a young researcher looking to build a publication repertoire, the experience of manuscript submission to journals can be new and unnerving. For the busy scientist, time is at a premium. The ingest functionality of EM works to solve both problems, and by adopting it in our own online system, we’re excited to bring our authors closer to their goals of publication and recognition.”

Richard Wynne, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, remarked, “Editage is a leading supplier of manuscript language editing services and we are delighted that they are the first adopter of the EM ingest service. By collaborating to solve market problems we’re able to grow our respective services.”

Aries is exhibiting at the upcoming PSP Annual Conference, February 4-6 in Washington DC. If you would like to learn more about the manuscript ingest service, please arrange to meet the Aries team at this event.
