Streamline User Login to EM/PM with ORCID Single Sign-On

Editorial Manager® (EM) and ProduXion Manager® are used by thousands of scholarly publications worldwide. As each EM/PM site functions as a unique database, users are required to create an account for each individual journal. To relieve this burden and streamline the login process, Aries Systems has partnered with ORCID to offer a single sign-on (SSO) option for EM and PM!

In order to qualify for ORCID SSO, users must register with their ORCID iD for a particular journal site or subsequently add it to their existing EM/PM account. With this, users can then login with their ORCID credentials rather than with their EM/PM username and password. This eliminates the need to remember numerous sets of login credentials for each individual journal they are affiliated with, ultimately streamlining the login process.

Journals must have the ORCID Single Sign-On configuration activated within their EM/PM deployment for users to take advantage of this functionality. If turned on, users will see the option to login via ORCID within the sign-in box. Editorial Manager communicates via the ORCID API to authorize the login. Editorial offices also have the option to customize the ORCID sign-in page with their unique organizational branding.
