“Of all the journ­al man­age­ment sys­tems I’ve used as an ad­min­is­trat­or over the last 20 years, Ed­it­Flow is by far the best. The sys­tem’s soft­ware is con­stantly be­ing im­proved and data­bases ex­pertly main­tained by a ded­ic­ated staff that is re­spons­ive to the needs of ed­it­ors and the journ­als they sup­port.”

“Ed­it­Flow is way bet­ter than any oth­er plat­form — in­deed, prob­ably this is the best such soft­ware I have ever seen. What I really like about Ed­it­Flow is that it seems the de­sign­ers really thought over what the users will need (which re­quires a great deal of em­pathy) and con­struc­ted the pages ac­cord­ingly, so I can find any­thing im­me­di­ately.”

“I agree that Ed­it­Flow is a DREAM. I love it, and use it in my ed­it­or­i­al work for Ad­vances in Math­em­at­ics.”

“When we took over as ed­it­ors-in-chief of the Ca­na­dian Journ­al of Math­em­at­ics, we con­sidered and test-drove sev­er­al ed­it­or­i­al sys­tems be­fore set­tling on Ed­it­Flow. We have been very happy with the choice we made. We find that the sys­tem is in­deed easy to use, mes­sages can be eas­ily cus­tom­ized, an ex­cel­lent data­base of po­ten­tial ref­er­ees makes the ref­er­ee re­quests an easy task, and the ter­rif­ic sup­port staff al­low us to troubleshoot any is­sue that arises, usu­ally with­in hours.”

Ed­it­ors-in-Chief, Ca­na­dian Journ­al of Math­em­at­ics

“Over the years, I have worked with sev­er­al ed­it­or­i­al sys­tems, some used by for-profit pub­lish­ers and some open-source. For­got­ten pass­words, lay­ers of links, re­stric­ted ‘ac­tions’ an ed­it­or/ref­er­ee/au­thor can take, cluttered in­ter­faces, count­less dif­fer­ent lo­gin IDs for the same sys­tem be­cause a new ed­it­or cre­ates one for me as a ref­er­ee each time there’s a new pa­per… and then I ex­per­i­enced Ed­it­Flow. It simply… flows!

“As an au­thor, ref­er­ee, and fi­nally ed­it­or, I find this sys­tem ex­tremely easy to use, easy to work with, self-ex­plan­at­ory, flex­ible, simple and most func­tion­al. Everything simply works. The links are simple, the ac­tions that can be taken simply make sense, the lan­guage is straight­for­ward and clear. To add a ref­er­ee, one searches the data­base in­stead of cre­at­ing yet an­oth­er lo­gin for yet an­oth­er pa­per to be re­viewed by the same per­son (no more emails that say ‘if you have a log in, please click here; oth­er­wise, here’s your new user­name…’). I can sub­mit and re­cord a con­tact up­date for any­one if I know a more re­cent email. I can quickly see what has been go­ing on with a pa­per I can re­cord email con­ver­sa­tions if they hap­pen to have taken place out­side of the sys­tem.

“Really, Ed­it­Flow does simply flow. It does not in­ter­fere with my ed­it­or­i­al work, as it shouldn’t; this sys­tem lets me do the work without think­ing about the sys­tem I am us­ing. Ed­it­Flow rep­res­ents a mod­el for how ed­it­or­i­al sys­tems should work.”

“I like Ed­it­Flow a lot. It is, by far, the best ed­it­or­i­al sys­tem I have tried.”

and For­um of Math­em­at­ics, Pi and Sigma

“Ed­it­Flow is an ex­tremely re­li­able and ef­fi­cient soft­ware for a math­em­at­ic­al journ­al. It is backed by an alert, re­spons­ible, and tal­en­ted team who can ad­apt the soft­ware to the prac­tices of any par­tic­u­lar journ­al, even as these prac­tices evolve in time. Its data­base of pos­sible ref­er­ees and their up-to-date ad­dresses is a great as­set. I would re­com­mend the use of Ed­it­Flow to any journ­al without any hes­it­a­tion.”

“Ed­it­Flow is the best on­line journ­al man­age­ment tool out there. As a man­aging ed­it­or of AGT, I find that Ed­it­Flow makes keep­ing track of pa­pers and com­mu­nic­at­ing with ed­it­ors fast and easy. Its auto­mat­ic re­mind­ers to ed­it­ors con­cern­ing dead­lines is in­valu­able in mak­ing sure pa­pers are handled in a timely fash­ion. I also ap­pre­ci­ate Ed­it­Flow as an au­thor and ref­er­ee. Ed­it­Flow for pa­per sub­mis­sions and the ref­er­ee­ing of pa­pers is far su­per­i­or to oth­er pa­per man­age­ment sys­tems. I es­pe­cially like not hav­ing to cre­ate a new ac­count or re­mem­ber a pass­word when I want to sub­mit a pa­per or when a journ­al asks me to ref­er­ee for them.”

“I be­came fa­mil­i­ar with Ed­it­Flow dur­ing my years as ed­it­or of the Pro­ceed­ings AMS, and also as the au­thor at sev­er­al oth­er journ­als. In my opin­ion, it is a sub­stan­tially more con­veni­ent and user-friendly pro­gram for all (au­thors, ed­it­ors, re­view­ers, …) than the oth­er ed­it­or­i­al pro­grams I am fa­mil­i­ar with.”

“Ed­it­Flow is very easy to use and con­tains everything needed for edit­ing. There’s no need for ex­tern­al re­cords and the work­flows are com­pletely trans­par­ent. It’s an ex­cel­lent sys­tem.”

Ed­it­or­i­al Ad­viser, Bul­let­in, Journ­al and Pro­ceed­ings of the LMS

“Ed­it­Flow is a power­ful sys­tem with an in­tu­it­ive design. It not only makes ed­it­ors’ jobs man­age­able, but also en­cour­ages com­mu­nic­a­tion between ed­it­ors in a way that leads to bet­ter de­cision-mak­ing.”

“Staff and math­em­aticians at the LMS looked at sev­er­al com­pan­ies to provide an on­line sub­mis­sion and pa­per-man­age­ment sys­tem. We were struck by MSP’s unique ex­pert­ise in un­der­stand­ing the needs of ed­it­ors and au­thors on math­em­at­ics journ­als and the reas­on­able price. Since the move to Ed­it­Flow in mid-2011, the ser­vice provided by the MSP staff has been first class.”

“As one of the chief ed­it­ors of AGT since it was foun­ded, I have lots of ex­per­i­ence work­ing both without and with Ed­it­Flow. Our work def­in­itely be­came much easi­er after it was in­tro­duced. Even more im­port­antly, it has made it much less likely that a pa­per ‘falls through the cracks’ and gets over­looked for any peri­od of time.”

“What I liked so much about Ed­it­Flow is that I could use it straight off, without hav­ing to con­sult a manu­al. It was in­tu­it­ive. I am now [2012] an ed­it­or of two journ­als which do not use Ed­it­Flow, very much to my re­gret.”
