Cochrane Library Adopts Editorial Manager® and ProduXion Manager® to Manage Publishing Workflows

Aries Systems Corporation, a leading technology workflow solutions provider to the scholarly publishing community, is pleased to announce the adoption of Editorial Manager® (EM) and ProduXion Manager® (PM) by the Cochrane Library.

The Cochrane Library is a prestigious collection of databases comprised of high-quality, independent research evidence to promote informed healthcare knowledge and decision-making. The Cochrane Library is owned by Cochrane and published by Wiley. Both EM and PM have been selected to power the manuscript submission, peer review, and production workflows for Cochrane Reviews and their database portfolio. Through their use of ProduXion Manager, the Cochrane Library will also be able to leverage Aries’ LiXuid Manuscript™ XML Editor, a revolutionary XML workflow tool for easy content proofing and editing. The Cochrane Library is transitioning from its in-house legacy system to Aries’ workflow solutions, which will deliver enormous efficiencies for Cochrane’s editorial team accelerating and optimizing the publishing process.

Karla Soares-Weiser, Editor in Chief of the Cochrane Library, said of this announcement, “This is a very important moment for Cochrane. We are delighted and confident that Editorial Manager will provide Cochrane’s editorial staff with more timely, consistent, and efficient editorial and production processes, enabling and improving our important evidence synthesis work and ensuring the future sustainability of Cochrane’s review production.”

Chris Mavergames, Cochrane’s Head of Informatics & Technology Services, Chief Information Officer and project lead said, “We are very pleased with the way Editorial Manager will simplify and streamline the editorial workflow for Cochrane Review Groups (CRGs). Its implementation will facilitate the work of our editors, particularly Managing Editors.”

“We are delighted that the Cochrane Library has chosen Editorial Manager and ProduXion Manager to streamline their workflows and increase visibility for their research and reviews,” added Aries Director of Sales, Jake Kelleher. “We look forward to working together to ensure the Cochrane team benefits from the rich functionality and configuration options uniquely available to our systems.”
