Apart from being experts in custom programming, our core focus lies in providing professional support and programming services to the world of scholarly publishing.
Our efforts in providing support and development are primarily driven by the sincere motivation to make a positive impact – every day, we stand true to the motto of our scholarly divisions: “Because the next manuscript might hold the cure for…” – while cherishing the wonderful possibility that our earnest efforts may assist in improving the quality of life on Earth. Just as our own name, PLANet Systems Group, suggests, we have always been focused on the big picture – the planet – and the health and wellbeing of all the living creatures that occupy it.
PLANet Systems Group® has been Involved in Online Scientific Scholarly Peer Review and Publishing from its very beginnings. During the early nineties, Dean E. Bedford, the principal founder of PSG, was the first to develop Manuscript Manager, one of the industry’s first Peer Review Applications while working as the developer of Carden Jennings Publishing.
In 2004 a ScholarOne Manuscripts end-user support for European based users has been initiated with two full-time employees based in our office in Novi Sad, Serbia as Tier One case support.

As of the fall, 2008 another 5 member European Support Team has been established to provide case and editorial assistance support for a list of journals published by the American Chemical Society.
We have entered the year 2018 with over 50 team members providing professional peer review services to Clarivate Analytics (ScholarOne Manuscripts) and more than 110 team members working for ACS.
