Knowledge to act



Things have been busy at ScholarOne! Another successful User Conference was held in between new releases for both ScholarOne ManuscriptsTM and ScholarOne AbstractsTM and right after the launch of ScholarOneNews on Twitter. Catch up on all that’s been happening:

ScholarOne Manuscripts v4.3 release: Key features include integration with Avectra NetFORUM Enterprise providing members with a single sign-on point, dedicated legacy data search to ease journal transitions and preserve valuable information with searchable legacy data and the ability to attach files to notes, which cuts decision time with at-hand notes and file attachments to any manuscripts. Learn more about ScholarOne Manuscripts.

At the User Conference: Publishers, Editors, and Administrators gathered to learn how to maximize their use of ScholarOne Manuscripts, meet with industry leaders to discuss hop topics like the ORCID initiative and international author submissions, get updates on the latest information on NIH Repository requirements, and learn how their fellow journals are expanding into social media and e-publishing. Also on-site were ScholarOne implementation and support experts to provide customized training and configuration assistance. Highlights and select presentations from the User Conference are available at @ScholarOneNews.

ScholarOne Abstracts v3.10 release: includes full paper upload capabilities, so you can use one system for both abstract and full paper collection and review. Coming soon: new interactive sessioning tools and the launch of Proceedings OnlineTM, a quick and easy way to capture and share live meeting content. Learn more about ScholarOne Abstracts.
