Editorial Manager Version 14.1 includes Xtract and a new submission interface that combines functional elegance with an updated design.
Xtract automatically extracts text from the Author’s submitted Word file (including Title, Abstract, Authors and Affiliations), reducing the need for Authors to manually re-key data and resulting in a faster, simpler submission experience.

Editorial Manager Version 15.0 introduces ORCID Reviewer Recognition. This integration gives journals control over the data shared via the Reviewer’s ORCID record and maintains journal “blinding” policies while ensuring compliance with privacy rules by allowing reviewers to “opt in”. Journals can configure deposit “profiles”—for example, recognizing Reviewers only when reviews are of high quality, and submitted on time. Watch the video to learn more.
