Independent and society publishers continue to navigate turbulent forces in the marketplace with evolving business models, pressure to increase high-quality submissions, the growing need for speed to publication, and expectations of a seamless author and user experience. To remain competitive, they must rely on a patchwork of industry vendors to support the necessary infrastructure and deliver crucial content to their stakeholders—despite inevitable handoffs, delays, and incompatibilities. Or do they?
Until recently, there has never been a publishing solutions provider capable of taking a manuscript from peer review to acceptance, through AI-powered copyediting, XML composition and author proofing, to electronic deliverables, online hosting, printing, and even marketing and management support. This session will feature content and technology experts from KGL alongside publishing operations leaders to explore the possibilities of truly comprehensive journal workflows. Find out how to form a true partnership with your vendor so you can sustain your publishing independence.
