Automated metadata extraction tool for streamlined submission workflow
Authors submitting manuscripts to academic journals often spend valuable time re-entering information that is already included in their manuscript documents. Editorial Manager’s Xtract saves Authors’ time by pre-populating metadata fields using data from their submitted manuscript file, reducing the time it takes to complete the submission process and eliminating rekeying of information.
Xtract automatically extracts key metadata from Authors’ submitted manuscript files, specifically Microsoft Word documents or PDFs, to automatically populate key system fields within Editorial Manager (EM). Xtract simplifies the submission process by reducing the amount of time Authors spend re-keying submission data, and leads to more accurate submission metadata for publishers. The Xtract interface in EM combines early XML workflow with an intuitive design for increased efficiency.
