Abstract

Technology has revolutionised the way that medievalists conduct and present their research; so too with publishers. This session presents – as a case-study – the processes involved in having a work published, from once a contract has been signed till after the book has been published. The session will provide tips on dealing with scholarly publishers and advice about contracts and sales expectations.
