Kyorinsha adopts UNSILO Technical Checks API to reduce manuscript submission delays

Tokyo, Japan / Aarhus, Denmark, 29 November 2019. UNSILO is pleased to announce the adoption of its Technical Checks API by Kyorinsha, the Tokyo-based publishing services company that supports researchers and scholarly societies, managing over 150 academic journals. The Technical Checks API, part of the UNSILO Evaluate suite, does not replace human editors, but uses machine-learning tools to provide information in real time from scientific research manuscripts, which assist human decision-making, such as identifying funding statements and potential conflicts of interest.

Yusuke Watanbe, President of Kyorinsha, commented: "We are very excited to partner with UNSILO, who leads AI integrated, deep-learning program development in the scholarly publishing community. Our partnership will allow us to provide higher-quality editorial services to our clients and explore new opportunities in the market at the same time. We believe that Technical Checks will play an integral role in our editorial services. We look forward to working closely with UNSILO to identify the best submission process for our customers.

Thomas Laursen, CEO of UNSILO, commented, "We are very pleased to be partnering with Kyorinsha, who work with some of the most prestigious research societies in Japan. We believe that this partnership will enable Kyorinsha to provide higher-quality editing as well as a quicker turn-round time to publication for Kyorinsha's academics. We look forward to working closely with Kyorinsha to identify further ways of improving the submission process for their customers."
