Here are a few reactions from users of Manuscript Manager

Highly Flexible

“Manuscript Manager is configured to precisely fit our workflow. It is simple to navigate and is appreciated by our co-editors, authors and reviewers. The support has always been excellent and I fully recommend this product to anyone wishing to upgrade”.

Anders Rydholm

Great Usability

Lori Bateman

Journal Publications Director, Quintessence Publishing Chicago

Quick to get going  

Although I had a very busy week, I forced myself to check out Manuscript Manager. I am glad I did since it significantly improved my mood. The program is easy to understand, easy to switch roles. Authors only see what they need to see. And I can continue. This will definitely be a platform that suits us.

Arjan Conijn

Editor, Journal of European Landscapes (Amsterdam University Press)

Great value

“We are finding this system very easy to use, and frankly very similar to the much more expensive systems that exist. We looked at systems like OJS, but decided that while the system is ‘free’ it would end up costing us a lot of time, labour, frustration, not to mention needing a server to run it on. Manuscript Manager feels like a perfect middle ground between free systems like that and the much more expensive systems from the big companies.”
