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?

DataSalon announces full integration of Research Organization Registry (ROR)

(Jan 2022)

DataSalon announced today that ROR (the Research Organization Registry) has been fully integrated into all of its services.

All of DataSalon's clients previously using the GRID database of research organisations have successfully been migrated over to using ROR in its place.

Both of DataSalon's key products, MasterVision and PaperStack, use a reference dataset of organisations to standardise and link data, allowing easy searching, a single customer view, and exploration of the relationship between organisations and individuals. The reference dataset also places client data in its wider context, making it simple to find new sales prospects or target new authors and reviewers.

DataSalon announces support for Read & Publish

(Jul 2021)

DataSalon announced today that both of their cloud-based systems, PaperStack and MasterVision, can now offer support for the reporting requirements created by Read & Publish deals - helping publishers in the move towards Open Access. Both PaperStack and MasterVision can produce the key reports required - tracking accepted submissions against the author's institution in order to record how many articles each institution has published.

This information is difficult for publishers to retrieve from the raw submissions data, but DataSalon has a well-tested toolkit designed to overcome the issues involved. Those tools can take care of collecting data from ScholarOne, Editorial Manager and/or eJournalPress; linking authors to institutions; and rolling up data to the required level of the institutional hierarchy, to cater for deals with both individual institutions and consortia.
