Paperpal Partners with the American Accounting Association for a Smooth Author Submission Journey

Paperpal, a Cactus Communications (CACTUS) brand that offers an AI-powered assistant for language and technical compliance checks for research manuscripts, has announced a partnership with the American Accounting Association (AAA) for its Preflight product. Through this partnership, Preflight will deliver a superior submission experience to authors and help reduce editorial workloads for AAA.

Commenting on the partnership, Abhishek Goel, Co-founder and CEO, Cactus Communications, said “Paperpal Preflight provides AAA authors with instant feedback on the submission readiness of their manuscripts. Powered by machine learning and trained on millions of published articles, Paperpal Preflight helps reduce journal editorial workload for manuscripts by identifying common errors and omissions in language and technical errors prior to journal submission. The journal editors also stand to save a huge amount of time with improved quality of submissions that adhere to the guidelines of the respective journals. We believe this is a revolutionary product and Paperpal is the future of the academia industry.”

Yvonne Hinson, CEO, the American Accounting Association said, “Our editorial staff rejects a significant portion of the submissions during initial quality control and technical checks. We recognize the delays that result from having to send papers back to authors and the additional rounds of review that are required to help improve the grammar, syntax, and readability of papers. We want to help relieve those pain points and are excited to partner with Cactus Communications to offer Paperpal Preflight as the solution. We highly recommend this tool to all our submitting authors for a pre-submission quality check with instant feedback on common technical errors and language quality.”

Paperpal Preflight is a plug-and-play web-based application that comes at no additional cost to publishers. This broader publisher-level partnership with AAA paves the way for other academic publishers to immediately start using the solution without any integration dependency and offer the tool to their submitting authors.
