Strategic industry collaborations for enhanced workflow solutions
At Aries, we recognize that successful peer review, production and distribution of scientific literature requires the co-operation of many independent vendors, and that no single company can optimally provide all of these services to a publisher or scholarly organization. For this reason, Editorial Manager® and ProduXion Manager® are open platforms for the integration of best-in-class third party applications and services.
If your organization offers a product or service that could be integrated with the peer review digital workflow, we encourage you to contact us to discuss technical and marketing partnership opportunities.

bioRxiv (pronounced “bio-archive”) is a free online archive and distribution service for unpublished preprints in the life sciences.

Manuscripts are not peer-reviewed, edited, or typeset before being posted online. A manuscript may be posted prior to, or concurrently with, submission to a journal but not if it has been accepted and given a journal DOI or published. Once posted, manuscripts have a preprint DOI and are citable. Authors may submit a revised version of a manuscript to bioRxiv at any time prior to publication in a journal.
