ProofCheck by River Valley

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

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.
