2017 SSP 39th Annual Meeting
Sponsored Session: Editage: Helping Publishers Get Closer to Authors…
The age of author-friendly publisher processes is here! Publishers globally are becoming increasingly author-centric by incorporating author support into their workflows, increasing outreach through author education, and trying to understand challenges authors face. Editage, a leading provider of publication support services, has partnered with several publishers to help them get closer to authors. This session shares interim results of a large survey Editage Insights (Editages resource platform) is conducting with authors, regarding various aspects of academic publication. The survey, being run since November 2016 in English, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Portuguese, has received more than 5200 responses so far, and sheds light on strong views authors have about issues like journal communication, time to publication, publication ethics, open access, and more. This session will provide useful insights into the psyche and expectations of authors and stimulate discussion about how publishers can make their journal processes more author friendly.
