Thomson Reuters Enhances Reporting Functionality To Scholarone Manuscripts

Philadelphia, PA, London, UK, May 5, 2009 – The Healthcare and Science business of Thomson Reuters today announced the newest release of ScholarOne Manuscripts® (formally Manuscript Central).  The upgrade includes the implementation of Cognos, a leading business intelligence and performance management tool.

“The new reporting functionality in ScholarOne Manuscripts makes an already essential application for scholarly publishers even more versatile,” said Keith Collier, VP and General Manager of ScholarOne, Thomson Reuters. “This unique reporting functionality, when used to its potential, has the ability to change the way journals manage, evaluate, and report on peer review operations within a journal.” 

The additional reporting features allow users to:
• Build custom ad-hoc reports, schedule automatically delivered reports, insert report calculations, and expedite pivot reports.
• Drill into performance statistics such as turnaround time, accept/reject rates and geographic distribution of submissions.
• Determine the timing, formatting and delivery method to distribute reports on-demand or on a schedule.
• Provide reports on journal publishing metrics to aid strategic decision making.

ScholarOne Manuscripts is an innovative, web-based peer review and submission application for scholarly publishers. It works by automating the manuscript submission to journals and allows for easy administrative, editing and reviewing capabilities.
