Paperpal, a CACTUS brand offering AI-powered assistances for language and technical compliance checks for research manuscripts, has announced its partnership with Aries Systems Corporation, a leading technology workflow solutions provider to the scholarly publishing community, for its Preflight product. Through this collaboration, Paperpal will deliver a superior submission experience to Authors and help reduce the editorial workload for Aries Systems’ Editorial Manager® (EM), the industry-leading manuscript submission and peer review tracking system.

Abhishek Goel, Co-founder and CEO, CACTUS said on the partnership, “Paperpal Preflight will provide Editorial Manager with instant feedback on the submission readiness of their manuscripts. Powered by machine learning and trained on millions of published articles, Paperpal Preflight will help editors save a huge amount of time with improved quality of submissions that follow the journal guideline. We believe this is a revolutionary product and Paperpal is the future of academia.”

“We are thrilled to continue integrating AI tools into Editorial Manager to create a more robust system” said Jennifer Fleet, Aries Managing Director. “Through our new partnership with Paperpal Preflight, we will provide journals and Authors submitting research via Editorial Manager a streamlined tool to boost the success and quality of manuscript submissions.”

Through advanced artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms, the Paperpal Preflight identifies complex writing errors and provides subject-specific language suggestions in real time prior to manuscript submission. Paperpal’s technology understands the context of the writing, provides appropriate recommendations, and identifies the most common errors in the manuscript to improve the quality of submissions.

In the submission workflow in EM, manuscripts are sent to Paperpal’s user-friendly web-based interface where Authors are provided with an automated check for structural inconsistencies and complex grammatical errors before the article is sent to the journal office. Once the manuscript passes through Paperpal, it is sent back to EM for submission, accelerating the writing process, enhancing the quality, and increasing the chance of acceptance.
