Aries Systems Corporation Becomes CrossRef Agent; Signs With New Customers

September 15, 2004, North Andover, MA, USA – Aries Systems Corporation, the developer of Editorial Manager and Preprint Manager, is pleased to announce that it has become an authorized CrossRef Agent. CrossRef participation by Aries signals the company’s commitment to enhancing its offering with DOI (Digital Object Identifier) registration as part of the peer review process. Release 4.0 (planned for Spring 2005) will enable publishers or journals to automatically assign a DOI and register article metadata in CrossRef as soon as a manuscript is accepted for publication. This enhancement delivers two key benefits for journals. Firstly, early registration of the DOI means that the manuscript can be reliably cited as soon as it is accepted for publication. Secondly, the DOI can be used as a universal identifier for sharing manuscript information between the peer review system and third party production management systems.

It represents just one of many examples of Aries’ responsiveness to editorial office requests.”
