Ringgold recently announced that the 4.18 release of ScholarOne Manuscripts is now integrated in the Identify Database as an institutional authority file. Ringgold brought this news to our attention in their article, “ScholarOne Manuscripts now features Ringgold’s Identify Database for institutional affiliations.”

A simple user interface enables ScholarOne’s robust application to enforce accuracy standards for the institutional affiliations of authors, contributors, reviewers, and editors. Users can select the correct institution from an Identify-populated search, embedding the Ringgold Identifier and Institution Name into the manuscript metadata and user profile. This feature is now active for all 6,400 journals served by ScholarOne Manuscripts.

All ScholarOne publishers will benefit from authoritative affiliation data, and the enhanced ability to share data across the journal ecosystem.
