Aries Systems

Since 1986, Aries Systems has successfully delivered technology that enhances the scientific publishing process, including Editorial Manager® and ProduXion Manager® for online manuscript submission, tracking, and post-acceptance production management.

Aries and Inera have integrated eXtyles® reference processing with Editorial Manager and ProduXion Manager, providing hyperlinked bibliographies for peer reviewers, early warning of bibliographic errors for authors, and formatting of reference lists to house style for journal editors. Most recently, Editorial Manager has also integrated eXtyles Metadata Extraction (as Aries Xtract), which streamlines submissions and improves metadata accuracy by automatically identifying and extracting key metadata elements from author-submitted Word files to auto-populate submission fields.


Crossref’s general purpose is to promote the development and cooperative use of new and innovative technologies to speed and facilitate scholarly research. The specific Crossref mission is to be the citation linking backbone for all scholarly information in electronic form. Crossref is a collaborative reference linking service that functions as a sort of digital switchboard. It holds no full-text content but rather effects linkages through Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs), which are tagged to article metadata supplied by the participating publishers. The end result is an efficient, scalable linking system through which a researcher can click on a reference citation in a journal and access the cited article.

eXtyles tightly integrates Crossref validation and linking, providing a unique way to increase the quality of scholarly publications early in the editorial workflow. Crossref has also deployed a custom version of eXtyles refXpress®, Simple-Text Query, that parses unstructured, free-text references into granular and valid XML and returns any matching DOIs for those references.
