Journals New Release Update

Version 1.0 & Version 2.0

Multi-tenancy Advancements:

Nvcleus Journals’ new release enables multi-tenancy functionality. This revolutionary addition empowers publishers to manage multiple journals seamlessly, within a single installation. 

Setting up a new journal takes just minutes, expediting the release process. The administration of all journals and users is centralized, streamlining management. Each journal benefits from dedicated group managers, editors, authors, and peer reviewers, each assigned specific permissions. The versatility of configuring customized workflows enhances the adaptability of each journal.

Multi-tenancy resolves the traditional reliance on multiple servers, installations, and services to manage additional journal workflows, often necessitating separate upgrades for each instance. This new functionality can save you significant time and the associated, often substantial, costs.

Enhanced Content Management System:

Nvcleus Journals’ advanced content management system empowers group managers with comprehensive control over webpage creation, editing, and publication via the publishing platform’s Settings>CMS section. Journal managers gain the capability to create and edit web pages linked within the header/footer through CMS>Pages. The feature extends to CMS>Layout, facilitating the organization of web pages and integration of brand partners and affiliations. This offers a higher degree of control over the publishing platform, enhancing its functionality.

Streamlined Email Notification Templates:

Efficiency in communication is paramount, and our Email Notification Templates feature serves to optimize this aspect. Accessible in a read-only format from the Settings>Email page, these templates include data mapping expressions. Event-specific email templates can be effortlessly assigned via the Configuration>Email page, ensuring consistent and tailored communication.

Improved Support for Revisions:

Nvcleus Journals now has a “Submit New Version” action within the Configuration Manager. This innovation empowers authors to submit new versions without the prerequisite of an editor’s decisive verdict (accept, revise, or reject). This streamlining of the revision process enhances the author-editor interaction, expediting the overall publication journey.

Threaded Discussions for Enhanced Interaction:

Fostering collaboration and interaction among stakeholders is exemplified through the implementation of threaded discussions. This feature allows for structured and historical discussions, promoting a deeper engagement with the content and ideas being exchanged.
