About Us

Origin’s management team has nearly 90 collective years of experience delivering cutting-edge management strategies to a wide variety of journals from multiple academic disciplines: biomedical, professional, scientific, and the humanities.

They have pooled their talent for successful journal supervision with their dedication to sound editorial practice. Origin calls upon its vast network of experienced editorial professionals, many of whom have 20+ years of experience in the industry, to ensure its clients are provided with the best match for their needs.

Our Team

Our team at Origin comprises more than 130 members based in the North America, UK, and Asia Pacific regions.

Many occupy prominent positions at organizations such as the International Society of Managing and Technical Editors (ISMTE), the Council of Science Editors (CSE), and the Society of Scholarly Publishing (SSP).

The team possesses a formidable depth of experience and an array of skillsets suited ideally to peer review management, ranging from the traditional (editing and project management) to more enhanced activities such as social media development, journal publishing management, strategic planning, and statistical modeling.

Accessibility, Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Respect

Our team members, the people we work with every day at Origin Editorial and Origin Reports, are integral to the work we do. We believe our values of Independence, Collaboration, and Knowledge cannot be fully realized without regard to the Accessibility, Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Respect (ADEIR) of our team members.


We understand team members work independently and without hesitation when they feel respected and their work limitations are accommodated. Independence is increased when team members feel supported and know that their diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and approaches are valued.


We understand collaboration is only successful when team members feel respected and included. Collaboration is enhanced when team members bring diverse points of view, have suitable access to contribute to collaborations, and feel they are being treated fairly.


We understand team members learn best when they have appropriate and equitable access to information. Knowledge is enriched when different view points of team members are included and appreciated.


We are a remote workforce, but this fact does not release us from the duty of achieving the principles set forth by the Coalition for Diversity & Inclusion in Scholarly Communications (C4DISC). We fully believe in these tenets and are committed to their fulfilment.
