On September 9th we started the ScholarOne Journal Triathlon as part of the roll out of our web services platform. ScholarOne Manuscripts v4.14 was successfully released in early December, delivering true enterprise web services for the peer review community. The new capabilities will help you in driving innovation for your editorial offices and for your end users.
Over the three legs of the Journal Triathlon, we received nominations for journals adapting processes and procedures to address the challenges of today, and improving their services for tomorrow. The ScholarOne Triathlon judges reviewed the winners of each event taking into consideration business impact, application of theme, and novelty of the solution for each nominated journal.
We are pleased to announce that the overall winner of the first ever ScholarOne Journal Triathlon is:
- THROMBOSIS AND HAEMOSTASIS (GOLD)
The runners up in our competition are:
- South Asian Journal of Management Sciences (Silver)
- Al-Shajarah (Bronze)
We want to congratulate the editors and the editorial office of Thrombosis and Haemostasis, the officially endorsed journal of the European Society of Cardiology Working Group on Thrombosis. Thrombosis and Haemostasis is published by Schattauer Publishers. Its current editors are Christian Weber and Gregory Y. H. Lip. Elinor Switzer is the journal’s publisher, based in Stuttgart, Germany.
We also want to thank the South Asian Journal of Management Sciences and Al-Shajarah for their strong performances in this competition. Both will receive a plaque in honor of their achievement.
A representative of Thrombosis and Haemostasis will be joining the ScholarOne Manuscripts 2014 User Conference in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Thrombosis and Haemostasis will also receive a speaking slot on the conference agenda. In addition, Thomson Reuter’s popular and widely read ScienceWatch will publish an interview with Thrombosis and Haemostasis, providing additional exposure for our top innovators.
Thank you all for your participation in and your contributions to our journal triathlon. It has been a real pleasure collaborating with you. Innovation is happening across the scholarly communications field – and together we are moving forward!
