1. Author and Ed. Office-facing tech checks
In collaboration with Penelope.ai, the module includes custom-built technical checks of manuscripts. Based on the individual journals’ author guidelines, a submitting author will receive a report, stating the degree to which they adhere to the journal’s requirements. This allows for adjustments before submission, saving time and friction. The check also contains a report for journal admins.
2. Full manuscript data extraction from Word to XML
Having a full set of data extracted from the authors’ submitted Word files opens up possibilities for decreasing time to publication and simplifying the peer review production processes.
3. Enhanced online submission
For publishers who are looking to create even more customised user experiences during the manuscript submission process, the enhanced online submission offers seamless transitions between our peer review platform and publishers websites.
4. iThenticate version 2.0
For all customers, Manuscript Manager provides a free integration with iThenticate by Turnitin. iThenticate 2.0, which will be made available in the publisher module. Note: a subscription with iThenticate will still be needed to make use of the integration.
5. CRediT Contributor Roles Taxonomy
Included in enhanced submission, CRediT (Contributor Roles Taxonomy) is a high-level taxonomy that can be used to represent the roles typically played by contributors to research outputs. The roles describe each contributor’s specific contribution to the scholarly output.

6. Portfolio-wide reviewer search
With the portfolio-wide reviewer search feature, publishers of multiple journals can choose to make the reviewer databases for the portfolio’s individual journals searchable for editors. This is especially valuable to portfolios with highly overlapping topic areas.
7. Author-driven manuscript transfer between journals
Publishers can configure transfer pathways between journals. This allows publishers to suggest alternative journals for manuscripts that are not suitable for the author’s target journal. Authors can then choose to transfer to one of a list of suggested journals.
8. Crossref Open Funder Registry integration
It is good practice for authors to acknowledge support for and contributions to their research in their published articles. With this Crossref integration, authors can easily search for and add the funding bodies associated with their work.

9. Webhook access to real-time manuscript status

10. Single Sign-On with ORCiD or Publisher profile
Create a seamless author experience, by passing users who are already logged into your publisher website on to the Manuscript Manager platform.
11. Conversation tool
Cut down on internal emails, by coordinating your editorial workflow via an internal messaging system.
12. Preprint server integrations
Inviting authors of manuscripts on preprint servers to submit to your journal? Lower the submission barrier for the author, via Manuscript Manager’s BioRxiv and MedRxiv integrations.
13. STM Integrity Hub
STM is currently working on its Integrity Hub. Here, publishers can check submitted articles for research integrity issues. With this integration, your editorial team can take advantage a seamless hookup to the hub for easy integrity checks.
