Register now for the SSP/AAUP Web Seminar: Improving the Copyediting
Workflow:  How Can Technology Help?

May 7, 2009 - 1:00-2:30 PM EDT

The copyediting function is one of the most expensive and time-consuming
parts of the publishing workflow, and has recently come under increasing
scrutiny from publishers seeking cheaper and faster ways of delivering
content to market. Over the last decade, a variety of tools, ranging
from Microsoft Word macros to entire SGML/XML editing environments, have
been deployed, using a variety of in-house and commercial expertise.
This seminar explores the impact of technology on copyediting in the
digital age. It features two case- studies from scholarly publishers who
have reinvented their copyediting workflows, placed in context by a
technical expert who will survey the latest developments in editing

Who should attend?

Full of practical suggestions and honest assessments, this seminar will
be invaluable to production editors, managing editors, and senior
management at small to medium-sized publishers of scholarly content.
