EDP Sciences launches NESTOR, its brand-new submission system and the first to fully integrate video submissions

NESTOR offers easier, faster, safer submissions with full video integration by Cadmore Media.

EDP Sciences is proud to announce the launch of its brand-new submission system NESTOR (New Editorial System Tool for Research) with full video integration provided by Cadmore Media. Over the course of the past year, NESTOR has been developed entirely in-house by a small, talented team. Both the speed and quality of the project are impressive which delivers an innovative solution based on best practice and evolving needs. All aspects of the system have been carefully considered and crafted to facilitate processes for editors, authors and reviewers.

The new system is intended for both journals and certain book submissions received via EDP Open Books. The features and layout of each page have been designed to be as simple as possible, so that the system is user-friendly and straightforward. There are easy-to-use dashboards, preference settings, reminders and many more features which are simple and effective. Overall, NESTOR is highly-configurable and customisable – we don’t believe in a ‘one size fits all’ approach to our editors, authors and reviewers.

“NESTOR was developed in conjunction with our community to better serve its needs and highlights the agility smaller publishers enjoy. In this instance, internal stakeholders were consulted frequently making this a truly collaborative effort and achievement” observed Jérôme Lepage, Chief Information Officer, EDP Sciences.

NESTOR is the first submission system to fully integrate video submissions via Cadmore Media. Cadmore Media is the expert in video streaming for scholarly publishing, providing video with DOIs, descriptive metadata, and full search-text. This integration will allow NESTOR to receive and manage many types of video content such as proceedings and video articles. Authors will enjoy a unique, fully-integrated and seamless experience and we are proud to be the first publisher to offer this service.

“It has been a pleasure working with EDP Sciences on this project and we have been impressed by the team’s professionalism,” commented Violaine Iglesias, CEO & Co-founder, Cadmore Media. “The end-to-end integration with NESTOR is unique and provides authors with a very neat solution from submission and peer-review all the way through to final publication on the platform. We feel sure that this is the start of a fruitful partnership.”
