Manuscript Manager integrates UNSILO AI tools to reduce manuscript submission delays

Copenhagen and Aarhus, Denmark -- April 7, 2020. UNSILO, a brand of the global scientific communications company Cactus Communications, is pleased to announce the integration of its Technical Checks and Reviewer Finder APIs by Manuscript Manager, the Copenhagen-based software company that provides submission workflow tools for publishers and scholarly societies, managing over 230 academic journals.

The Technical Checks API, part of the UNSILO Evaluate suite, uses machine-learning tools to provide information in real time from scientific research manuscripts, such as identifying evidence of funding statements and potential conflicts of interest. The software assists human editors and authors by providing links and checks.

We are very excited to partner with UNSILO, which leads AI-integrated, deep-learning program development in the scholarly publishing community.

We look forward to working closely with UNSILO to further streamline the submission process for our customers."
