It’s that time of the year when most academics and scholarly publishing professionals are preparing to attend conferences, and we’re no exception! Editage and Editage Insights (Editage’s author resource platform with an independent editorial team) attended the 2017 annual meeting of the Council of Science Editors in San Diego, USA; the 39th annual meeting of Society for Scholarly Publishing in Boston, USA; and 2nd Annual Asian-Pacific conference by the International Society of Managing & Technical Editors (ISMTE) this year.
Apart from connecting with the members of the industry in these conferences, we also presented the primary results of the large survey we conducted with authors around the world to understand their views on various aspects of academic publication. The survey has that received more than 5000 responses so far rendered extremely interesting results, which were widely discussed at these conferences.
