Charlesworth Gateway


Content management and data analytics in one powerful platform

Discover Charlesworth Gateway, a powerful author communications platform that seamlessly connects your manuscript submission system or platform to global messaging apps. Gateway provides publishers with the ability to send instant notifications to authors, keeping them informed at every stage of the submission-to-publication process.

Gateway offers an enhanced, localised author experience by facilitating fast communication between editors and their authors/reviewers directly to their mobile devices, creating a continuous two-way conversation. This reduces the volume of author queries. Gateway’s dual-language capability empowers publishers to engage with authors in their preferred language, helping to establish and grow author communities in specific regions. Furthermore, Gateway seamlessly integrates with Aires Editorial Manager as a plug-in publisher service.

Gateway was awarded the ALPSP Award for Innovation in Publishing 2022, celebrating the impact that Gateway has on global STM publishers and authors in China.
