Migration of journals to Evise

Dual system approach

Image fish jumpin in bowl

A dual system approach will be taken when a journal using EES moves to Evise. Manuscripts already submitted to EES will complete the editorial process in EES. New manuscripts will be submitted and managed via Evise.

This approach ensures the migration process is easier for users and that no submissions are lost during the transition period.

Journal migration to Evise

Migration will take place on a journal by journal basis.

Elsevier will ensure the transfer is as smooth as possible. Key principles will be adhered to:

  • There will be close involvement of editors
  • Planning at a journal level will be communicated well in advance
  • There will be an integrated approach for editorial training, support and communication

The initial release saw a small number of carefully selected journals move to Evise.

Further deployment

Future Evise releases will build on current functionality thus enabling more journals to migrate. Journals which are considered suitable for migration to Evise will be identified in consultation with Editors and Publishers.

Following the initial release, new functionality will be added to Evise in quicker development cycles.

Highlights of the latest release are available on the Release Information page.
