Working together since
Before an article gets published, it goes through multiple stages of reviews. The flow is often cluttered with dozens of emails between reviewers, authors, and editors, which made the publishing process exhausting to Business Perspectives and all the participants. Our client came up with the idea to create an online solution with a smooth publishing experience, able to attract reviewers from all over the world.
The ticket to success was a tailored web application. A feature-rich administrative system completely changed the way Business Perspectives used to work — the whole publishing and review experience is now 100% digital, presenting a faster and more interactive workflow.
No more losing time navigating in files and conversations. The list of submissions, up-to-date statuses and all the related info are gathered in the app.
An author can easily register in the system with ORCID, a unique id for scientific contributors. With a few clicks they can submit their work and be rest assured they’ll be automatically notified every time their manuscript passes the next review stage. The editors, in turn, are automatically notified about new or overdue submissions.
The tool provides a visual submission timeline to keep an eye on deadlines and progress. It allows managers to see all related conversations, administer submissions and send emails from within the app, eliminating the need for hours of manual labor.
Eventually, the newly developed platform gives the e-publishing company:
Finding the right author, reviewer or a manuscript submission and accomplishing the next project task is now the work of a moment.

“Don’t consider MindK as a vendor — you should be a partner with them. We were constantly in touch throughout the whole project, so I’ve never had to question their availability or transparency. They were flexible with our suggestions and all tasks were heard and implemented very quickly — it’s really comfortable to work with the MindK team.”
