February 25, 2021 | North Andover, Massachusetts –
Aries Systems Corporation, a leading technology workflow solutions provider to the scholarly publishing community, is pleased to announce the adoption of Editorial Manager® by the Thai-Journal Citation Index (TCI) Centre.
In addition to creating global collaboration for improving journal quality, the Thai-Journal Citation Index Centre’s mission is to expand research and disseminate knowledge to enhance the quality of Thai research output to international standards. Aries’ Editorial Manager (EM), the industry leading manuscript submission and peer review tracking system, will prove instrumental in supporting this mission through its robust functionality and flexible configuration options. EM will allow TCI to efficiently manage workflows across 45 journals in their portfolio, which have successfully transitioned from a legacy peer review system. As TCI grows, more journals are expected to launch through EM overtime.
“We are so pleased that our collaboration with Aries Systems via Editorial Manager has resulted in a comprehensive program to help editors with content management for a number of Thai journals that are currently indexed in the Scopus database,” said Professor Dr. Narongrit Sombatsompop, Head of TCI and Chairman of the ASEAN Citation Index (ACI) Steering Committee. “We truly believe that EM provides efficient professional communication between editors, authors, and reviewers throughout the peer review process, which will result in obtaining high quality research publications. Such a system will bring great benefits to Thailand, supporting the Thai scholarly community and the advancement of Thai research.”
“We are thrilled that the Thai-Journal Citation Index has decided to make the switch to Editorial Manager,” commented Jake Kelleher, Aries Director of Sales. “Aries is excited by the opportunity to work with TCI to expand our reach within the Asian market and to provide Thai publishers and scholars with the best possible workflow solution to enhance and streamline their editorial processes.”
