Aries Systems and American Journal Experts Announce Partnership

May 21, 2008, North Andover, MA, USA – Aries Systems Corporation and American Journal Experts (AJE) are collaborating to make specialized editing services more readily accessible throughout the peer review and production workflows.

The rapid adoption of Editorial Manager® by more than 2,800 scholarly journals has made it convenient for international authors to submit their manuscripts online. Consequently, publishers have experienced dramatic increases in the number of high-quality submissions from non-native English language authors.

Because these articles often require special handling, Aries and AJE are working together to facilitate seamless access to language editing services during editorial and production workflows via direct transmission from Aries’ workflow software to AJE. Authors benefit from convenient access to English language editing of their manuscripts. Publishers, editors and peer reviewers benefit from improved manuscript language quality during workflow.

“AJE’s partnership with Aries will offer a simple solution to publishers struggling to accommodate the editorial demands of an increasing number of manuscripts submitted by non-native English speaking authors. Preprint Manager® and Editorial Manager already allow a simplified workflow through the submission and peer review process — now the option of automatically sending a submission through AJE’s language editing service without leaving Preprint and Editorial Manager will bring enhanced ease of use, convenience and cost savings to the customer,” says Mary Anne Baynes, Sales and Marketing Manager at AJE.

“Aries is pleased to provide a software platform which allows the integration of such quality third-party services as those offered by AJE,” adds Richard Wynne, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Aries, “partnerships such as these enable our customers to attract superior authors and manuscripts.”
