Traditionally, annotation tools have been thought of mostly in terms of post-publication review, but emerging use cases are being developed upstream in the areas of pre-publication authoring, peer review and copy-editing. Annotation from pre-publication thru post publication could change how publishers and scholars work and make for a more collaborative, efficient, and transparent creation of content. Not only could this provide more accurate recognition of who adds what value in the process, it could also support collaborative behaviors in scholarly communication. This panel will discuss current ideas and projects with the audience and their implications for the changing press.
