Registration Opens for EMUG 2020 Webinar Series

Aries Systems has transitioned the 2020 EMUG program into a knowledge-packed webinar series as part of our commitment to support their dedicated user community during this unprecedented time.

We understand that you can no longer physically attend our 2020 Editorial Manager User Group Meeting (EMUG) in Boston but that doesn’t mean we can’t deliver all the great insights directly to you in the comfort of your home office! The series session lineup is designed to keep EM/PM users up-to-date on some of the diverse features, reports and configuration settings that can enhance their journal’s workflow and site deployment. Presented by Aries’ peer review experts, each session will run for approximately one hour: 45 mins of content with 15 minutes dedicated to questions.

Registration for the 2020 EMUG webinar series is now open! Our EM/PM user community can select from the following sessions:


Increased Convenience for Editors

Boosting Reviewer Engagement

Wednesday, June 24, 2020 | 11am EDT

Presented by Tina Fleischer, Senior Account Coordinator Register Now

The peer-review process relies heavily on the willingness of Reviewers to dedicate time and effort to review submissions – often with little formal recognition. This session will highlight ways in which publishers can use EM to engage with the Reviewer community more actively and offer credit for work where appropriate. This will include features that benefit Reviewers such as ORCID Reviewer Recognition, Reviewer consultations, Review transfer options, My Review History as well as some simple reporting options that can help highlight your most active Reviewers.


The Power of Identifiers

Tuesday, July 7, 2020 | 11am EDT

Presented by Caroline Webber, Business Systems Analyst Register Now

A discussion on why identifiers are important and how EM/PM facilitates their use, including DOIs, ORCIDs, custom meta-ID’s, and more! This will include an overview of the various identifiers available within EM as well as use cases of how identifiers can be used to disambiguate content when exported to a third-party vendor or transferred to another EM site.


Gradual Engagement

Tuesday, July 14, 2020 | 11am EDT

Presented by Dmitri Khodjakov, Systems Analyst Register Now

Gradual engagement aims to limit unnecessary barriers for Authors at initial submission and allow Editors and staff to quickly evaluate submissions for appropriateness for a given publication. Learn about new options to simplify the submission process for Authors and how new workflow options can be leveraged by staff to streamline the initial evaluation of a submission.
