Jesper Sørensen

"Without Scholastica, we could never have launched Sociological Science as easily and as quickly as we did. By providing a seamless experience for both authors and editors, our editorial team is able to concentrate on the scholarly content – a critical issue for a new journal."

Jesper Sørensen, Sociological Science

Ashley Amaya

"We were having a really hard time finding a submissions management system and a publishing system all in one that would actually allow us to not publish in issue format. It's one of the big reasons that we went with Scholastica."

Ashley Amaya, Survey Practice

Suzanne Moon

"Scholastica has dramatically speeded up my own editorial work and made it much easier for all of the editors to track the things we need to track."

Suzanne Moon, Technology and Culture

Timothy Gowers

"Discrete Analysis has a high-quality website through Scholastica. Ours is easier to navigate and nicer than the websites of any other journals or commercial publishers I've seen. We're showing that you can have an online reading experience that's as high quality as print."

Sir Timothy Gowers, Discrete Analysis
