Migration of journals to Evise
Journal migration to Evise
A dual systems migration approach will be used to migrate journals from EES to Evise. After the introduction of Evise for a journal all new submissions will be managed via Evise. All existing submissions in the editorial process will be managed via EES. Existing submissions will leave EES either because they are accepted and published or because they are rejected. Elsevier will implement processes to manage orphaned manuscripts.
The dual system migration approach ensures that no manuscript and no work is lost because of migration. Elsevier will take care that the transition period, during which the two systems have to be used, will be as short as possible.
Migration will take place journal by journal.
Elsevier will make the transfer as smooth as possible. Key principles:
- Close involvement of editors
- Planning per journal will be known well in advance
- Integrated approach for editorial training, support and communication
- Thorough testing of system and procedures before migration can start, including a so called migration pilot with selected journals.
