Atlantis Press reached an agreement with Aries Systems this week about the adoption of their Editorial Manager, the industry-leading, cloud-based manuscript submission and peer-review tracking system for scholarly journals, reference works, books and other publications. Authors can use Editorial Manager to submit their manuscript files and metadata, as well as to act on revision requests. Editors use the system to review submissions, assign to reviewers, and to make and communicate decisions to accept, revise, transfer or reject manuscripts. Reviewers are invited to review manuscripts, can accept or reject assignments, flag their own availability and specialties for Editors, and perform and submit all review tasks in the system.
Editorial Manager will initially be implemented for Atlantis Press’ flagship journal, the International Journal of Computational Intelligence Systems (IJCIS), and will be rolled out across the company’s wider journals portfolio later this year. Remco de Boer, CEO of the new journals publishing services subsidiary Atlantis Press International, says: “Editorial Manager is widely considered to be the best online submission and peer review tracking system in the industry and to adopt this system is a major step forward in terms of professionalizing the editorial infrastructure for our current and future journals.”
