What do societies and publishers want from publishing partnerships?
Abstract:This article looks at the requirements of both the society and publisher when entering into a publishing partnership. These partnerships are driven by more than just income considerations. Visibility for the product and expertise in both publishing and the academic assessment of content and publication are considered. The assumption that the society only provides academic assessment and the publisher only provides publishing skills is questioned.
