Science manuscripts submitted to journals to be checked for plagiarism

from InformationToday :

The Scientific business of Thomson Reuters ( announced that it will be incorporating the iThenticate checking tool into its submission and peer-review process in Manuscript Central’s online workflow system. Manuscript Central is a web-based, database-driven peer-review and online submission program for scholarly publishers. The program automates manuscript submission to journals for easy administration, editing, and review so customers can focus on the content instead of the process. Policies and guidelines will also be developed.

CrossRef recently signed an agreement with iParadigms, LLC to launch the CrossCheck service to help verify the originality of scholarly content. After the success of CrossRef’s recent pilot of CrossCheck, the service will be scheduled to go live in June via Manuscript Central, with more than 200 societies and publishers, 2,400 books and journals, 70,000 monthly submissions, and 5 million registered users.
