Automation: For Faster and Hassle-free Production
People are constantly on the lookout for new information or ideas, and the Internet offers an abundance of both. As anyone with Internet access can publish an article or independent research paper, the publishing world has become more competitive. To be a cut above the rest, STM publishers are streamlining their production using automated solutions and providing high-quality content in less time.
Publishing companies work with various professionals including authors, researchers, designers, copyeditors, and proofreaders. Efficiently managing such a diverse team and identifying bottlenecks can be quite a task, resulting in production delays, errors and lack of feedback. Publishers are turning towards automation to help them shorten the book or journal production cycle and deliver content without any hassles.
Customized automation workflow solutions that unite a journal production team are in use today. Such automated solutions provide visible benefits for publishers as well as authors. Authors can directly work on the system and send their articles or papers to the editor, who in turn will pass it on to the proofreader.
Publishers can track the progress of each article in real-time, enabling them to conveniently and efficiently manage the entire publishing process, right from authoring and design to final content delivery across multiple devices.
Automation reduces time-to-market and enhances processes, leading to increased profit margins and achievement of business goals.
