Aries Systems and CACTUS Partner to Simplify Research Writing and Editing through Paperpal

January 9, 2023 | North Andover, Massachusetts –

Aries Systems Corporation, a leading technology workflow solutions provider to the scholarly publishing community, and Paperpal, a Cactus Communications (CACTUS) brand, are pleased to announce their partnership to offer AI-powered assistances for language and technical compliance checks for research manuscripts.

This collaboration will connect Paperpal’s Preflight, a web-based platform designed to simplify research writing and editing, with Editorial Manager® (EM), the industry leading manuscript submission and peer review tracking system. Through advanced artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms, the Paperpal Preflight identifies complex writing errors and provides subject-specific language suggestions in real-time prior to manuscript submission. Paperpal’s technology understands the context of the writing, provides appropriate recommendations, and identifies the most common errors in manuscript reporting to improve the quality of submissions.

In the submission workflow in EM, the Author has the option to send their manuscript to Paperpal’s user-friendly web-based interface for an automated check for structural inconsistencies and complex grammar errors before the article is sent to the journal’s office. Once the manuscript passes through Paperpal, the Author can continue with their submission in EM, accelerating the writing process, enhancing the quality, and increasing the chance of acceptance.

Abhishek Goel, Co-founder and CEO, CACTUS said on the partnership, “Paperpal Preflight will provide Editorial Manager with instant feedback on the submission readiness of their manuscripts. Powered by machine learning and trained on millions of published articles, Paperpal Preflight will help editors save a huge amount of time with improved quality of submissions that follow the journal guideline. We believe this is a revolutionary product and Paperpal is the future of academia.”

“We are thrilled to continue integrating AI tools with Editorial Manager to create a more robust system” said Jennifer Fleet, Aries Managing Director. “Through our new partnership with Paperpal, we will provide journals and Authors submitting research via Editorial Manager a streamlined tool to boost the success and quality of manuscript submissions.”
