Scholastica's peer review system helps you increase efficiency to speed up your time to manuscript decision. See a log of the latest editorial activity at your journal, easily track and access manuscript files, assign to-dos to yourself and others, and even toggle between multiple journal views as needed.

Improve your submissions and peer review experience for all involved

With user-friendly manuscript submission and reviewer feedback forms, convenient assignment reminders, and built-in communication tools, Scholastica's peer review system provides a better experience for authors and referees as well as editors. Plus, we offer unlimited support to all users.

Build out your reviewer database and track performance

Keeping track of peer reviewers is easier with Scholastica. Referee details are stored in a Reviewers Table that you can search and sort via quick filters and custom tags. See the last time you invited each reviewer, their pending or late assignments, and performance stats like average days to complete a review.

Seamlessly process publication charges via CCC RightsLink

Scholastica's peer review system can integrate with Copyright Clearance Center's (CCC) RightsLink tool to simplify invoicing at open access journals with article processing charges. When the integration is enabled, metadata to process author discounts is sent to RightsLink automatically.

Speed up communication with centralized discussion threads and easy email templates

Manage all journal communication right from Scholastica via our integrated email feature, Discussions. Recipients can view and respond to Discussions from our peer review system or their email, with all threads saved in Scholastica next to the corresponding manuscript. Scholastica also features Discussion email and Decision letter templates with built-in merge fields to help your team send manuscript updates faster.
