SAE International adopts Editorial Manager® across journals portfolio

April 17, 2017 | North Andover, Massachusetts – Aries Systems is pleased to announce the adoption of its web-based manuscript tracking and peer review system, Editorial Manager, by SAE International. The SAE International portfolio consists of 10 peer-reviewed journals, as well as several forthcoming journals to be announced later this year, all of which will launch on Editorial Manager in 2017. The journals previously managed editorial workflow using an in-house system.

SAE International’s portfolio includes the SAE International Journal of Engines, SAE International Journal of Commercial Vehicles, the forthcoming Transportation Cybersecurity and Privacy, and others.

The roll out of Editorial Manager will facilitate manuscript submission, tracking, and peer review workflow for all journals in the SAE International portfolio. Authors, editors and other workflow participants will benefit from worldwide access to files and metadata 24×365, as well as standardized workflows, helpful integrations and sophisticated access to portfolio data via helpful cross-journal reporting.

“We can’t wait to begin leveraging EM to organize and improve our workflows,” said Kimberly Martin, Journals Publisher at SAE International. “In particular, we are excited by the prospect of attracting more authors and making the submission and peer review process more user-friendly.”

“SAE International, and its prestigious portfolio of journals is another exciting opportunity for Aries and Editorial Manager to add to the growing list of scholarly society adopters,” said Aries Client Development Manager Bob Donegan. “SAE International’s participation is a welcome addition to our active and engaged user community.”
