Wiley Editor Jenny Peng said, “Wiley’s partnership with Overleaf is part of our commitment to delivering an easier, quicker publication experience for authors. By providing access to Wiley’s authoring templates, Overleaf offers authors a simple way to collaborate during the preparation and submission of their manuscripts, saving them time on writing, formatting, and submitting to Wiley journals.”
Recent discussions taking place on the Editorial Manager Listserv included questions about the advantages and disadvantages of author-suggested reviewers. Discussion participants included Alice M. Landwehr, managing editor and editorial support specialist, who contributed additional commentary on best practices for using various workflow configurations and procedures.

Editorial Manager Version 14.1 includes a new author submission interface update that combines functional elegance with an updated design.
New functionality automatically extracts text from the Author’s submitted word file (including title, abstract, and authors and affiliations) thereby reducing the need for authors to manually re-key these data during submission. This means authors will have a faster, simpler submission experience.
To learn more, watch this brief video overview. To gain early access to 14.1, contact an account coordinator about joining Beta testing.
