A multi-disciplinary journal asked KWF Editorial to assist with the identification of reviewers for manuscripts lagging behind their target timeline for peer review.
KWF Editorial assembled a team of scientific specialists with appropriate training and credentials in a broad range of fields to identify reviewers using the selection criteria and search methodology employed by the journal’s in-house editorial board. A KWF Editorial dashboard was built to distribute reviewer research tasks efficiently among the staff and track the workflow timeline for each manuscript. Our team now regularly provides well-matched reviewer suggestions within 24-48 hours of any request from the journal, resulting in a significant reduction in overdue manuscripts. The journal now has a reliable and effective process to secure reviews for manuscripts, improving the overall timeliness of the peer review process.
