The Professional/Scholarly Publishing (PSP) Committee for Digital Innovation (CDI) is introducing another Seminar Series on Selected Topics in Digital Publishing. This three-part seminar series will explore these topics and the practical aspects of the real applications of technologies that were once the stuff of science fiction. Mark your calendars for October 17, 2017 at 12:00-1:30 p.m.

The second part of this series is How AI Can Streamline the Peer Review Process. The volume of scientific publishing has grown to more than 2 million articles per year, with manuscript submissions representing a multiple of that figure. The resulting challenges to the established peer review system have prompted the adoption of editorial management systems that can speed up the processing of manuscripts from submission to review to publication. As these systems become more advanced, artificial intelligence (AI) may come to the fore as an important new element of the peer review process. This seminar will address questions such as:

  • What functions should AI perform (and not perform)?
  • How will authors change their submission strategies in the expectation that they will be judged by these systems?
  • When and how might AI be able to identify “new knowledge”?

Speaker: Richard Wynne, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Aries Systems Corporation
