Eric Pesanelli
Eric Pesanelli has worked in STM (Scientific, Technical and Medical) Publishing for more than 15 years. As Editorial Art Manager for The American Physiological Society publications department, Eric has seen figure preparation go from the paste-up table to the electronic desktop environment. As the electronic workflow evolves, the “paste-up” aspect has taken a backseat to balancing the needs of an electronic production environment with the abilities of the users/authors.
