Thomson Reuters Offers Publishers Five Tips To Grow Their Business and Maximize Their Peer Review Systems
Philadelphia, PA, London, UK, April 18, 2011 - Relying solely on an online peer review system isn't enough for publishers to find real, lasting improvements for their internal processes and overall quality of their scholarly journals.
Top 5 Best Practices For Advancing Your Editorial Office, a new white paper from Thomson Reuters, outlines five ways that scholarly publishers can advance their business by leveraging all that online peer review systems have to offer. Many systems contain similar features and functionality but the real differentiator between systems comes from the provider relationship.
"There is a significant difference between a software expert and an industry expert," said Keith Collier, vice president and general manager at Thomson Reuters. "When it comes to peer review management systems, it's imperative to select a single vendor to act as both a provider and an advisor - one that can help you identify new ways to gain a competitive advantage, instead of simply managing the administrative process."
Best practices for publishers to get the most from their peer review systems include:
- Be a champion for your authors and reviewers.
- Tailor your system to fit your unique needs.
- Don’t waste time and money by simply replicating old procedures.
- Focus on improving your publication and your editorial strategy, instead of managing a process.
Select a trusted partner, not just a vendor.
The industry is changing and publishers are feeling increased pressure to get to market faster and to publish in new ways. Top 5 Best Practices For Advancing Your Editorial Office is the second whitepaper from Thomson Reuters addressing industry trends and improved efficiency in the scholarly publishing business.
