May 25, 2023
Prophy Inc., a leading scientific knowledge management organization that specializes in delivering peer-review solutions to journals, publishers and granting agencies and Aries Systems Corporation, a technology workflow solution provider for scholarly publishing are delighted to announce the integration of Prophy’s flagship product, the Referee Finder, with Editorial Manager®.
Aries Systems
With a finite number of referees whom are in high demand, finding qualified reviewers with diverse backgrounds, is a daunting task for editors and journal staff. While many journals have their own reviewer databases their needs often outweigh the number of reviewers readily available to comment on manuscripts. What’s more, adding new reviewers to their database can be challenging. Aries Systems and Prophy have partnered together to help solve this challenge by offering publishers the ability to integrate Prophy’s Referee Finder, a Reviewer searching platform and matching tool with Aries’ manuscript submission and peer review tracking system, Editorial Manager, in their workflow.
Publishers using EM will be provided with recommendations for Reviewers through Prophy’s extensive database of over 60 million researchers, drawn from a collection of over 150 million articles. Prophy’s Referee Finder tool automatically creates a Reviewer profile and ranks each Reviewer according to their semantic similarities to a reviewed manuscript or proposal. This integration allows Editors to quickly find, filter, and contact the most relevant and available Reviewers. This not only enables editors to diversify their reviewer pool but also to identify promising early career researchers. Once a Reviewer is selected, automated invitations can be sent directly from EM without any disruptions to workflows.
Prophy recognizes the need in the modern day to find good referees efficiently, but also that editors’ require seamless workflows to maximise their efficiency. As such we see these partnerships as vital to the success of the peer-review process, a function that underpins the whole of the scientific process. Already building on Prophy’s integration with eJournal Press and Copernicus, this integration represents another step forward in our commitment to bringing the best peer-review tools seamlessly to the workflow of an editor.
"As the CEO of Prophy, I’m incredibly excited about our collaboration," said Professor Alexey Boyarsky. "By integrating our tools into the editors' workflow, we can ensure that all journals across the sciences benefit from our platform. We look forward to a strong partnership with Aries and are eager to continue bringing our tools to those who need them."
"Aries is thrilled to partner with Prophy to effortlessly connect editors with qualified researchers to advance science and improve the peer review experience", stated Aries Director of Business Development, Pierre Montagano. "This partnership and offering further demonstrates Aries commitment to expand and innovate our ecosystem of workflow tools to best meet the needs of our user community."
