2017 SSP 39th Annual Meeting
Sponsored Session: codeMantra: Collaboration and Communication…
From submission to publication, publishers engage with authors in many ways. To reach publication successfully, its necessary to follow a series of well-defined steps. For example, during the editorial process, communication is often overlooked or lost, while critical data is generated but frequently misplaced. Consequently, collaboration and process management suffer when the right technological tools are not in place.
Publishers need to think about the tools available to them for adding value to their author relationship, especially in competitive environments. Effective collaboration can help unite the various internal and external publisher systems that service the author, such as the peer review process and production. Ultimately, there are few professional relationships more collaborative than author and publisher. Improving, capturing and preserving the exchanges between these stakeholders will assist in the development of best practices and put a publisher on the road to improved author satisfaction and loyalty. This session will discuss the role of technology in facilitating author communication and overall stakeholder collaboration.
