Submission site training

The Taylor & Francis Systems Support Team have developed submission site training. The training covers how to use Editorial Manager and ScholarOne manuscripts as editors and administrators. And it includes a series of videos on all stages of the peer review process, from submission to decision on papers.

Are you unsure which peer review system your journal uses, or do you have questions for us? Please contact us.

The videos can be used as a refresher for Editor-in-Chiefs or administrators on a site as we offer one-on-one training for these roles. Editors that manage a few submissions and focus on the peer review process do not require one-on-one training and can use the video tutorials. Examples of these roles include Associate Editor or Guest Editor. For information on how to request one-on-one training, please contact us.

Simply click on the ‘Go to training’ button below and you will be taken to the appropriate channel. All you need to do is enter your email address to access the videos.

The submission site training includes a series of videos including information on all stages of the peer review process, from submission to decision on papers.

The featured video shown at the top of each channel is a tutorial on the peer review process from inviting reviewers to decision making. Besides the featured video, we have a series of short videos so you can quickly get the information you need. We have numbered each of these videos if you would like to watch them in the order a paper goes through the system. These shorter videos are broken down into the following categories:

1. General information
This section contains videos on how to update your information, send emails in the system and an explanation of the different areas of the system. It is suitable for all roles in the site. 

2. Editor
This section contains instructions on how to use the different reviewer searches in the system, how to make a decision on a paper and notify the author. It is suitable for anyone that has an editor role in the journal, i.e Editor in Chief or Associate Editor.

3. Administrator

This section goes more in depth to administrative actions, including how to update a user’s information and exporting papers to the production department at Taylor & Francis. It is suitable for anyone with access to all papers in the system.
