Editorial support

Reviewers play the most important role in transforming a manuscript into a high quality article. Our approach is to provide the reviewers with the tools they need to be independently active in the various phases of the workflow. However, we are there to personally assist them at any time with focused editorial support should any problems arise.

The following stages can be managed cooperatively with our editorial support system; all the essential information and necessary steps are automatically provided via email:

  • Author's referee proposal during the manuscript registration;
  • Editor call based on journal subject areas or nomination by chief editors;
  • Editor's acceptance of the review and nomination of referees;
  • Referee call;
  • Referee's acceptance of the review;
  • Upload of the referee reports;
  • Upload of the editor report;
  • Technical corrections editor–author, minor revisions and major revisions;
  • Final acceptance of the manuscript.

We offer additional options regarding chief editor decisions or blind/double-blind review processes. Our options can be combined individually and our tools customized to meet the varying requirements of different communities and editorial policies.
