Karger Publishers and Manuscript Manager, in collaboration with Penelope.ai, are conducting a trial with Active Author Guidelines: An author-facing manuscript prechecker, designed to improve the accuracy of the author’s submission.
Active Author Guidelines allows authors to actively check if their manuscript fulfills the journal’s Guidelines. Authors are prompted to address any flagged issues before continuing with their submission. Previously, authors were prompted to revisit the site after submission, when an infringement was detected by the Editorial Office of Karger Publishers. Active Author Guidelines assists in circumventing this time-consuming step.
Feedback collected during the current trial of the Active Author Guidelines across 25 Karger journals shows that authors find the tool useful. With a 30% decrease in guideline infringements since introducing the Active Author Guidelines to these journals, a general improvement in submission quality results in fewer delays before a paper can be admitted to peer review. This improves efficiency and the author experience with Karger Publishers.Click here to read the original press release.
