The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) has adopted River Valley’s manuscript submission and peer review system, ReView, for all its journals. The IET, which had been using ScholarOne for many years, will transition all its journals to ReView over the coming months.
The IET says it was looking for a peer review platform capable of handling multiple content formats including books, conference papers as well as journal articles, on the same platform. Flexible reporting across multiple content types was also a requirement.
ReView is designed to give publishers complete and intuitive control over their content. All content is hosted in a single installation and reports, including interactive graphical reports, can be generated instantaneously – be it for one journal, a group of journals, or for all publications.
Sara Sharman, head of content services at the IET, said: 'ReView’s refreshingly simple user interface, combined with River Valley’s intimate knowledge of scholarly content, gave us the confidence to choose River Valley over the competition.'
River Valley’s Kaveh Bazargan said: 'It has been a pleasure to work with The IET. Our mission is to minimise admin and simplify the working process for all stakeholders. We are confident that the benefits of a single, nimble installation for all content using state-of-the-art web technologies will make it a pleasure for authors, reviewers, and The IET’s admin staff.'
