Peer Review Management

Aims and Scope

We specialise in prestige peer review management. Working with journals and their Editors, we offer the highest level of support handling intricate workflows, adapting with ease to the preferences and work styles of a wide range of clients.

We pride ourselves on transforming problematic journals by creating efficient workflows and ensuring smooth-running operations. We work with many journals that already have an effective workflow, allowing us to concentrate on smaller areas of improvement and general day to day management. Our team have also migrated several journals, having either partial or no previous use of a peer review submission system, to ScholarOne. 

Meanwhile, we ensure that each user and journal contributor receives the best experience and service possible.

Some of the world’s most well-known academic publishing houses trust PA EDitorial to manage their journals. They know that our broad experience and ability to transform problematic journals with efficient workflows means that they can concentrate on the research while we deliver a smooth-running operation.

Whenever you work with PA EDitorial Ltd, you can trust you’re in great hands.



Exactly What You Need

Reviewers and editors are busy individuals; it is up to our Managing Editors to build rapport and ensure consistent healthy and positive communication. This enables our team to meet the more challenging elements of peer review management. Our Managing Editors follow their allocated journals closely and encourage reviewers and editors to work within acceptable timescales. As a result, we constantly meet author expectations.
