PRODUCT

ProofCheck by River Valley

After evaluating several competing products in 2016, De Gruyter has chosen River Valley’s online proofing platform, ProofCheck.

De Gruyter had previously been sending authors their proofs in PDF format for annotation.  Authors’ corrections would then be implemented to produce the final publication. De Gruyter was looking for a faster and more reliable system in order to minimise admin within the publication workflows of their online-only journals.

PRODUCT

Figshare

Figshare, an online digital repository for academic research, has launched a tool that enables authors to share their research outputs more efficiently during the publishing process.

Springer Nature is the first publisher to pilot this new data submission portal and has worked closely with Figshare to build a customised service to support open research. The tool will reduce the amount of information authors must complete to share data supporting their publications.
