Editorial Strategy: Content Evaluation and Curation

Tuesday, September 9, 2014 from 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM Eastern Time

Expectations for scientific content have shifted dramatically over the past decade. Articles have moved from being literary efforts, crafted and copyedited by authors, to being technical papers pulled together by contributors to be reviewed, processed, and distributed as fast as possible. In addition, electronic presentation, although the norm, is often seen as being much more automated than it actually is, resulting in rapidly shifting duties for staff and less-than-optimal publisher websites and electronic archives. What have we lost and gained in this transition? What strengths do we build on for the future?
