As of today, Atlantis Press has extended their existing agreement with Aries Systems for Editorial Manager (see here) to also include ProduXion Manager, the industry-leading, cloud-based solution for manuscript production tracking. ProduXion Manager can be used independently or in conjunction with Editorial Manager, where on manuscript acceptance all files and metadata for a submission are automatically transferred to ProduXion Manager for workflow processing.
ProduXion 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. Zeger Karssen, Owner and Publishing Director of Atlantis Press, comments: “I am happy to see that we are now adding another industry-leading system to be part of our operational workflow. We are in the process of completely redesigning the end-to-end production workflow for our journals and production tracking is an essential part of this. Adopting ProduXion Manager will further professionalize our production infrastructure for current and future journals.”
