Testimonials

Journal of Biological Education

“Karen from The Editorial Hub Ltd is fantastic. She is organised, efficient and hugely supportive, both to me as Editor in Chief, and to our Associate Editors. She doesn’t just move manuscripts through a workflow, she is an essential member of our team. Without her, keeping the journal functioning during the pandemic would have been incredibly difficult. Every journal needs a Karen!”

International Journal of Public Opinion Research

“I have worked with Sarah, from The Editorial Hub Ltd, for around four years now. Sarah has provided excellent support for running our journal and has made my job so much easier. I am very grateful for her immaculate work. She is diligent, thoughtful, and knows her responsibilities very well. Sarah is also prompt in her responses, which keeps everything moving on time. My experience with Sarah has been nothing but positive. I recommend both her and The Editorial Hub Ltd enthusiastically.”

International Journal of Transitional Justice

“Although initially a bit sceptical about moving to an editorial assistant assigned through The Editorial Hub Ltd given that we had been accustomed to working with our own editorial assistants, we have been delighted with our collaboration. Davina’s experiences with OUP’s systems – and knowledge about whom to contact when there are questions beyond our OUP-expertise – have been invaluable. Importantly, she knows when she knows and has an impressive professional humility to consult when the issue is outside of her scope of knowledge. Her learning curve has been impressive as is her patience with all of us on the editorial team in the midst of the multiple challenges of COVID 19 and others that accompany our Special Issue processes wherein we often collaborate with experts in their fields but who are sometimes new to the editorial process and based in multiple time zones. We look forward to our ongoing collaboration.”

“My experience with working with Sarah, from The Editorial Hub Ltd, has been nothing but positive. Throughout our time of collaboration Sarah has been professional, accurate, responsive and most of all very friendly and reliable. We could not wish for a better person for this job.”

Wolters Kluwer Health

“The Editorial Hub Ltd has been providing an editorial office for us for over a year and we are delighted with the high-quality work and service they provide. Our Managing Editor, Lizzy, is a great asset to the journal, dealing with a high number of submissions, working with some non-standard workflows, and providing an excellent point of contact for our editors, authors, peer-reviewers and publishing teams. The Editorial Hub Ltd has ensured the smooth and effective running of our editorial office and we recommend them wholeheartedly.”

Social Politics

“I have worked with Penny from The Editorial Hub Ltd for the past year, since I joined the editorial team of Social Politics. Penny’s patience and willingness to shepherd me through the journal’s system made me more capable and efficient from the start of my term. She is thoroughly on the ball, aware of the details of all submissions and somehow able to communicate with unflappable calm to authors, reviewers and editors. Her attention to detail has pre-empted potentially troubling situations. In many respects, she is the glue that holds the journal together.
