2014 Alone or Part of a Crowd? The Future of Manuscript Editing Departments
Let's step back from coding manuscripts, managing schedules, and handling the whole host of details we usually focus on to look at the big picture of manuscript editing departments in the evolving academic press. What is the balance of in-house and freelance staff? Are departments combining with others in the press or are they still autonomous? Has our involvement with manuscripts shifted? How have changes in the broader publishing climate affected our approach to staffing? What types of jobs can both entry-level and experienced editors hope to find in the future?
