Q: Will I be able to transfer my data to Editorial Manager from a legacy system?

A: Yes, Editorial Manager supports several different levels of data import from legacy systems. Some journals choose just to import “people” information from a legacy system, but the Editorial Manager Data Bridge also supports rapid and comprehensive transfer of manuscript data.

The Data Bridge is a convenient, seamless solution for importing historical manuscript and people data from legacy online or desktop manuscript tracking systems. With journal-customizable fields, import utilities, migration protocols and powerful search capabilities, the Data Bridge makes all of your data from the previous system available in your Editorial Manager deployment. This includes:

  • Information about people (names, address, etc.)
  • Historical manuscript and reviewer data
  • Keywords
  • And much more

If you would like more detailed information, or if you would like to preview a sample of your data in an Editorial Manager site, please contact us. We are happy to answer specific questions about the transition process.
