International Water Association Publishing extends its use of Aries’ technology with the adoption of ProduXion Manager

February 13, 2017 | North Andover, Massachusetts – Aries Systems is pleased to announce the adoption of its web-based journal production tracking system, ProduXion Manager, by IWA Publishing.

Since 2007, IWA Publishing has successfully used the Editorial Manager web-based peer review system for its twelve self-published journals including: Water Science & Technology, Water Science & Technology: Water Supply, Journal of Water and Health, Journal of Hydroinformatics, Journal of Water Supply: Research and Technology – Aqua, Journal of Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene for Development, Journal of Water and Climate Change, Journal of Water Reuse and Desalination, Hydrology Research, Water Quality Research Journal of Canada, Water Policy and Water Practice and Technology.

Commencing in 2017, IWA Publishing will roll-out ProduXion Manager to its journals to facilitate post-acceptance workflow. Manuscript files and metadata are automatically transferred to workflow participants, such as copy editors and vendors. The system incorporates content management and concurrently supports manuscript and issue-based workflow.  Status terms and dates are automatically updated as tasks are completed and files transferred.

“After many years using Editorial Manager for peer review, we are very happy to implement ProduXion Manager to streamline our journal production processes. We look forward to strengthening our relationship with Aries and improving our production workflow.” said Emma Gulseven, Journals Manager and IWA Publishing.

“Aries is delighted that IWA Publishing have chosen to extend their longstanding partnership with Aries by adopting ProduXion Manager across its portfolio of journals,” said Aries Vice President of Sales and Marketing Richard Wynne.

ProduXion Manager has been deployed with hundreds of journals from leading publishers such as Wolters Kluwer, Nature, Wiley-VCH, Springer Nature, American Meteorological Society and more.
