Aries Video Library grows to more than 100 videos, providing strategic and practical insights into scholarly manuscript workflow

April 3, 2017 | North Andover, Massachusetts – Now with more than 100 entries, the Aries Video Library communicates the nuances of scholarly workflow along with practical solutions and advice. The videos are freely available to existing and prospective customers and continue to grow in quality and quantity.

“Aries invests more than $6 million per year developing new, configurable solutions for scholarly publishers. Videos are a fun and concise way to communicate these changing capabilities to prospective customers, and to help existing users optimize their ROI,” said Aries’ Marketing Manager Alison O’Connell.

For example, this one-minute video shows how editors can be automatically alerted to author-list changes. Configuring this option can save hundreds of hours of editor time and improve manuscript quality.

Another three-minute video explains how collecting industry standard metadata enables efficient fee processing for journals offering Open Access.

“Editorial Manager has so many features that can be customized for our journals–the challenge can be following the steps to implement them correctly, when time is in short supply (i.e., always),” said Amy McPherson, Director of Publications, Botanical Society of America; Managing Editor, American Journal of Botany. “Thank goodness for the video library! In concise, clear, well-illustrated videos, I’ve been able to take advantage of updates to our system that make the manuscript submission process easier for authors, and the review and evaluation process more efficient for our reviewers and editors. Keep them coming!”

Available at the videos are fully written, directed, and produced by the Aries marketing team.
