What do our authors really think about our publishing practices? Hear from a panel of distinguished and well-published academics, in various stages of their careers, on the thorniest topics: the manuscript submission process (Which management system is the easiest? What would be easier?), peer review (Is double-blind the best? Do you have time to review?), marketing expectations (What publicity and promotion do you expect your press to provide for your book?), and impact measures (Is your T&P committee still looking at impact factors? What altmetrics are important?). This will be a Q&A roundtable-style discussion, with plenty of time to field questions on additional topics from the audience.
