Spiked Math: The Publishing Process
Since Wednesday is miscellaneous update day according to my new schedule, I thought I would provide some (simplified) background information on how the publishing process works in mathematics (in preparation for tomorrow's comic about the topic). Now of course, in the flow chart below I'm referring to big name commercial publishers (e.g., Elsevier, Springer, Wiley, etc). For more information and criticisms regarding commercial publishers and information on the current Elsevier boycott, check out the following:
*Note: The above is quite simplified and doesn't take into account mathematicians working outside of academia (who may also publish), as well as open access journals that don't have the same restrictions and costs (and copyrights quite often stay with the authors).
