Reviews

'I [am] struck by how up to date this book feels - thanks in part to a chapter about the future of journal publishing ... I have no hesitation in recommending [The] Handbook of Journal Publishing as the best single resource I know on the subject. I learnt much from reading it.' Anthony Hayes
'The advice is clearly grounded in hard-won experience and much of it benefits from being actual, attributed examples from real publishers ... what we have here is a hard-working, no-nonsense sort of a colleague.' Mark Ware, Learned Publishing
'... a comprehensive reference guide written by four knowledgeable authors. It covers all aspects of contemporary journal publishing for both online and print titles ... the book provides solid information that will guide all editors through best practices in this often-overlooked part of the publishing industry ... Essential. Graduate students, researchers, and professionals/practitioners.' J. Rodzvilla, Choice
'... a thorough, easy-to-read guide that will help readers quickly get up to speed both on important events and hot button issues in the history of journal publishing, and equip them to jump into running existing titles, or launching new projects.' Journal of Electronic Publishing

"It would be an extremely difficult task to assemble a better qualified author team than the foursome who have written The Handbook of Journal Publishing. Sally Morris, Ed Barnas, Douglas LaFrenier, and Margaret Reich have well over a combined 100 years of experience at numerous noteworthy publishers, both commercial and not-for-profit. And while the authors don't date back to the origins of journal publishing in Paris and London in 1665 or the heady, expansionary days after World War II (nor does anyone else, of course), they've worked on a broad range of titles and experienced enough change to make them excellent teachers and guides to a highly specialized and, dare I say, sometimes underappreciated, sector of the PSP world."
