Springer Publishing Company is moving its manuscript submission and peer review system to ScholarOne. The agreement covers all of Springer Publishing Company’s journals.

ScholarOne offers workflow management solutions for academic journals, conferences and books. It enables organisations to improve their profiles with authors and reviewers, reduce submission-to-acceptance time, and lower infrastructure costs.

Adam Etkin, executive editor for journals at Springer Publishing Company, says: 'When considering a new provider for our peer review system, it was important to choose an innovative and publisher-independent organisation to handle the most important services for our research community.

'The Web of Science Group was a natural choice based on innovations we have seen with ScholarOne and Publons. While there are common pain points shared by all journals, we have a variety of journals with different workflows and needs. Journals such as Research and Theory for Nursing Practice, Violence & Victims, and Journal of Cognitive Psychotherapy conduct thorough peer review, but their approach to that end can differ.'

The agreement includes Publons Reviewer Recognition and Reviewer Connect services, which integrate with ScholarOne. In addition, Springer Publishing will have access to new AI-driven article scanning features in ScholarOne.

Keith Collier, managing director for publisher services at the Web of Science Group, says: 'We’re proud that Springer Publishing Company has chosen ScholarOne and the Web of Science Group. We look forward to working with them to improve their experience, from submission to acceptance. Transforming your submission system by changing providers can be a daunting prospect, but we are working together to ensure a truly seamless transition.'
