BenchPress allows you to customize every aspect of the submissions process, giving you a submissions tool that fits you and can adapt and grow as your publishing program evolves.
Manuscripts are the lifeblood of educational publishing, but the submissions process can often cause frustration and delays on both sides of the process. Our submissions tools help you increase efficiency, decrease costs and dramatically reduce time to publication by streamlining the process.
Single sign-in and intuitive interface simplifies submission and facilitates a rapid and rigorous peer review process, while intelligent admin tools and reporting functionality give editors and publishing staff unrivalled insight.
From simple processes to complex workflows, our submission platforms support all your publishing needs.
Features modern pages with only the critical buttons, links, and text you need.

Type-ahead keyword selection, bulk imports, and drag-and-drop manuscript upload.

Graphical reporting and workflow data.
Many publishers find themselves paying for more than they need. Often, submission systems include standard features and functionality that many journals don’t need, making the platform difficult to navigate.
We work with you to ensure your site matches your workflows. If you’re a publisher with low volume, you can use BenchPress Unlimited to provide only the critical features and functionality that you need.
Do you often have trouble getting your platform provider to respond to questions? And when you do get a response, do your changes take a long time to release? Many publishers use a platform that isn’t flexible, or only speak to customer service representatives who can’t make changes.
When you choose HighWire Submissions, you only communicate with people who can make changes. There is no delegating from account managers to customer service to support. Our staff usually respond to requests within minutes, and up to 48 hours at a maximum.
Most submission systems charge publishers per-submission fees, meaning publishers can be penalized for their own success if they receive a high volume of submissions. This makes it difficult to plan your budgets, unless you know exactly how much your submissions program will grow.
BenchPress Unlimited comes with a single fixed quarterly fee that remains the same for the lifetime of your contract. So, whether you receive a hundred papers a month or a thousand, you pay one flat rate. This means you can focus on growing your publishing program, rather than worrying about how you’re going to pay for it.
