Digital Publishing Workshop: Author Rights and Relationships
As scholars, many of us spend time on both sides of the publishing divide and this workshop is for editors and authors alike. We’ll think about how authors evaluate and choose where to publish, learn how to spot and avoid predatory publishing, and share tips for crafting competitive submissions. Building on our discussion about peer review and selection, we’ll discuss how editors support and collaborate with authors through review and production to publication.
In this workshop we’ll also break down intellectual property and copyright ownership and understand how authors’ rights can be retained and protected while encouraging open access scholarship. By focusing on the rights and the relationships we build within the the publishing process, we’ll gain both valuable editorial development skills and knowledge that can be applied to our own work as publishing scholars.
