Although scholarly publishing is the stock-in-trade of academia, the actual mechanics of publishing are poorly understood in the profession. Panelists take a hard look at the nature of publishing from the material, fiscal, and practical perspective of the publishers. Those voices are rarely heard in the academy, even though publishers are the linchpin of our scholarly productivity.
