November 30, 2007, North Andover, MA, USA – Cambridge University Press and Aries Systems Corporation are pleased to announce an agreement to deploy Aries’ Editorial Manager online peer-review system to journals published by Cambridge University Press. Simon Ross, Journals Director at Cambridge University Press, commented, “We publish over two hundred journals ranging across physical and medical sciences to social science and the humanities. This means that we need a configurable peer-review system that can accommodate a wide variety of workflows and practices. Editorial Manager is ideal because it can be easily reconfigured without software changes. We have also been impressed by Aries’ customer service and responsiveness.”
Lyndon Holmes, President and founder of Aries Systems Corporation, acknowledged the importance of the agreement to the company. “Cambridge University Press is one of the most prestigious not-for-profit publishers in the world and we are delighted to have been selected as their strategic partner for online peer review. We invest continuously in ongoing interface and functionality enhancements, so that Editorial Manager will provide the optimal user experience for the publishers authors, reviewers, and editors.”
The Aries Systems Corporation and Cambridge University Press teams have been working together since early 2007, and several journals have already been launched on Editorial Manager. The pace of deployment will accelerate now that the new agreement is in place.
