Aries System automates transfer of workflow data into peer-review metric

Share this on social media:

Aries Systems and STRIATUS/JBJS have announced a development partnership that will allow relevant workflow data to be transferred automatically from Editorial Manager to the PRE-Score peer-review quality metric. This will enable the PRE-Score to be calculated and published with the manuscript. Aries anticipates that the new functionality will be available to Editorial Manager customers in late 2014.

PRE-Score, which was acquired by STRIATUS/JBJS in January, aims to provide a standardised way for readers and research funders to assess the quality of peer review undertaken by scholarly journals. 

The PRE-Score algorithm uses a variety of inputs stored in the journal's peer review system such as the number of review cycles to determine the PRE-score for a manuscript.

Lyndon Holmes, CEO of Aries Systems commented: 'Scholarly journals live and die by the quality of their peer review. Now, with PRE-Score, they have a way to quantify and improve their processes. We are delighted to be collaborating with STRIATUS/JBJS.'

Kent Anderson, CEO/publisher of STRIATUS/JBJS, said, 'Lyndon Holmes and his staff are very thoughtful about addressing changes in the market, and proactive about adapting to them. We're happy they're the first to pledge to support PRE-Score metadata delivery solutions.'
