ScholarOne and SciVee Team Up
Thomson Reuters (www.thomsonreuters.com) has announced a new partnership between ScholarOne (www.scholarone.com), its peer review workflow management solution, and SciVee (www.scivee.tv), a provider of rich media solutions to the STM market. The partnership will give users of ScholarOne Abstracts (formerly Abstract Central) the ability to capture live meeting content and share this content post-event using one source.
"This partnership is in direct response to the feedback we have received from our customers who want support beyond abstract review," said Keith Collier, vice president and general manager of ScholarOne, Thomson Reuters. "The products SciVee offers create innovative multimedia components for the world of scholarly publishing and we are confident this partnership will help our clients get the most from their meeting content."
What does this mean to ScholarOne Abstracts users? From a scholarly standpoint, users can augment their meetings or conferences with fluid, multimedia content. As a business tool, this application increases post-event revenue opportunities.
"As more scientific endeavors move online, SciVee strongly believes that video and rich media will play an increasingly important role," stated Marc Friedmann, CEO of SciVee. "We are pleased to partner with ScholarOne to bring this enhanced capability to their society and conference customers."
ScholarOne Abstracts, a web-based workflow solution, provides those organizing meetings with a secure, complete, cost-effective workflow solution for abstract submission, peer review, program creation, publishing output, and administrative control.
SciVee provides internet video and rich media web products and services for institutions and individual researchers to help the advancement of scientific knowledge. Based in San Diego, SciVee was launched in late 2007 as a joint initiative between the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at the University of California, San Diego.
