Oxford University Press adopts PaperStack for comprehensive editorial reporting

(Sep 2023)

DataSalon has today announced a new agreement with Oxford University Press (OUP) for the adoption of its PaperStack service. By adopting the service, OUP will be enabled to provide instant insights into its peer review process and enhance its source data with industry data from Ringgold, Funder Registry, ORCID, and Crossref.

PaperStack provides 'out-of-the-box' integration with ScholarOne and Editorial Manager, both of which are used by OUP to manage its journal submissions. Using tried-and-tested API integrations, DataSalon took care of harvesting, linking and enhancing the data to create a single unified view of all submissions across both systems, allowing detailed reporting across OUP's journals in one place.

DataSalon launches visual tracking of rejected journal articles

(Apr 2023)

DataSalon's PaperStack service now includes an interactive visual report which makes it easy for publishers to understand the fate of all rejected articles, providing users with instant insights into if, where, and when rejected articles are later published elsewhere.

The PaperStack rejected article tracking module was introduced to address the issue that journal publishers often have little knowledge of the ultimate outcome for submissions they reject. When the module is enabled, all rejected articles from a publisher's entire journal portfolio are automatically tracked in Crossref to identify if they are later published elsewhere and if so when, in which journal, and with which publisher.

And because it is fully customisable to the individual publisher, MasterVision has the flexibility to include not only SIAM's core submissions, subscriptions, sales, usage and denials data, but also additional customer data such as members, student chapters, conferences and donations.

Hindawi partners with DataSalon to make detailed publishing metrics publicly available

(Jun 2022)

Hindawi Limited are delighted to launch Hindawi's journal reports today. These reports, developed with the help of DataSalon, showcase a range of journal metrics about the different publishing services Hindawi provides for their journals. By exposing more detailed data on their workflows - from submission through peer review to publication and beyond - they are giving researchers, partners, and funders a clearer view of what's under the 'journal hood'. They are also raising greater awareness of less talked-about services, such as how Hindawi are helping to make the publication process more equitable and published articles more accessible and discoverable.

DataSalon launches major redesign of MasterVision service

(Jun 2022)

DataSalon announced today a major redesign of their flagship product, MasterVision, creating consistency across their product portfolio and improving accessibility for those using it on tablets and mobile devices.

The redesign brings MasterVision in line with DataSalon's newer PaperStack service, which is beneficial to those publishers using both products. It has enabled DataSalon to pull into MasterVision features that have already been tried and tested in PaperStack, such as smart content loading and a responsive design which ensures that each page of the site displays in the best way for the screen width available. Smart content loading is invaluable in a service like MasterVision which is based on so many large data tables. Each of these is now displayed as a single scrollable table - without any negative effect on performance, because only the data actually seen on the screen is downloaded at any one time.

DataSalon adds rejected article tracking to PaperStack service

(May 2022)

DataSalon announced today the launch of a major new module for its PaperStack service, allowing editorial staff to track rejected articles to discover if, where, and when they are later published elsewhere.

The subsequent fate of rejected submissions is often unknown to journal publishers. But a third or more are likely to end up being published elsewhere, and understanding where those rejected articles end up provides valuable insights many publishers miss out on. In particular, when some submissions end up with reputable competitor journals, might they instead have been transferred to an alternative journal within the publisher's own portfolio?
