publications workflow with AI component, concept

The American Chemical Society has added an AI-based language services tool to its publications workflow.

ACS, which publishes more than 300,000 research manuscripts a year, is using Writefull's Manuscript Categorization API before copyediting to automatically classify all accepted manuscripts by their language quality.

The API, which was trained on millions of scientific papers, uses ACS classification criteria to assign a level-of-edit grade to manuscripts at scale without editors having to open documents and review the text. After benchmarking alongside human editors, Writefull reached more than 95% alignment in grading texts, significantly reducing the time ACS spends on manuscript evaluation.

The API also evaluates the language in manuscripts after copyediting.
