John Wiley & Sons, Inc. announced that it has recently signed an agreement with Kyorinsha Co., Ltd. to provide support and maintenance to Wiley-Blackwell society journals in Japan that are managed in the ScholarOne Manuscripts system.


ScholarOne Manuscripts, a business of Thomson Reuters, provides workflow management systems for scholarly journals, books, and conferences, by using web-based applications to manage the submission, peer review, and publication processes more efficiently. Kyorinsha supports a version of the system, which offers a Japanese-language interface paired with the full support capabilities from ScholarOne.


Under the new partnership, Wiley-Blackwell appoints Kyorinsha to provide service for ScholarOne Manuscripts to journals where editorial offices are not housed within the Wiley Tokyo office. Wiley-Blackwell currently publishes 51 society journals in Japan in the sciences and social sciences, and encourages its society partners to use ScholarOne Manuscripts for editorial office peer-review management.
