Wiley and UNSILO to transform how manuscripts are submitted and screened

May 23, 2019

John Wiley and Sons Inc. (NYSE:JWa) (NYSE:JWb) and UNSILO have partnered in a pilot to boost researcher capacity for simplified submission and screening of research content using UNSILO’s artificial intelligence tools.

An increasing amount of time is spent by authors, editors, and reviewers on submitting and screening research for publication – rather than doing research. It has been estimated that tens of millions of hours are lost every year to inefficient publication workflows. Many of the tasks for preparing, submitting, and screening content are critical, yet mundane, repetitive, and time-consuming for the people who manually perform them. This contributes to poor researcher experiences, increasing resource demands, and delayed publication.

UNSILO and Wiley are each working on researcher-focused initiatives to address these problems and opportunities, and will now collaborate on testing UNSILO’s Manuscript Evaluation software suite. The software performs real-time analysis of incoming submissions with integrity and quality control checks, guides manuscripts to appropriate journals and experts for input, and supports preparation and screening of content in the context of prior research discoveries.
