With the cancellation of the 18th annual Editorial Manager User Group Meeting (EMUG 2020) due to the coronavirus pandemic, Aries Systems transitioned the program into a knowledge-packed webinar series. Although we missed seeing everyone in-person, we are thrilled to have had the opportunity to engage with our user community in a virtual environment
The five-part series featured a diverse set of topics. Each session covered topics such as popular features, configurability options, and reporting tips to optimize journals’ EM/PM sites and enhance the Author, Editor and Reviewer workflows. Conducted on a weekly basis over a six week period, various members of the Aries Client Services and Product Management teams presented the following sessions:
- Increased Convenience for Editors
- Introduction to Enterprise Analytics Reporting (EAR)
- Boosting Reviewer Engagement
- The Power of Identifiers
- Gradual Engagement
Aries is pleased to have been able to connect with such a large audience of EM/PM users through this virtual setting. The EMUG 2020 webinar series nearly tripled our standard reach, with 390 unique registrants across the five sessions, in comparison to the ~130 average attendance for our US conferences each summer. We thank our dedicated Aries staff and user community for making this series a success!
Whether you missed your chance to attend or are interested in watching the presentations again, each session in the EMUG 2020 webinar series is available for playback in our webinar catalog. We invite users to share the recording links with their colleagues using EM/PM.
Aries is actively working to develop more virtual learning sessions and opportunities to connect with our customers. We hope you can join us for our upcoming joint webinar with the Charlesworth Group, Engaging Authors in China through the Charlesworth WeChat Gateway and Editorial Manager, on Tuesday, August 18th. This webinar will be broadcasted at two different times, at 8am EDT and 2pm EDT, to accommodate our global customer-base. Registration is free, select which session time works best for you and sign up today!
