" excellent book...provides a source of information and a sound basis for those making decisions in academic publishing, whether as editors, authors, or publishers..." Jenny Gretton, European Science Editing

"There are an amazing number of options available at every turn in journal publishing and the authors of Journal Publishing have done a remarkable job in enumerating them. Indeed, I would not hesitate to recommend Jounal Publishing to every publisher, every editor, every vendor, and anyone else with a serious interest in how publishers extract and transform the chaotic results of research into chewable, digestible bites of information. Journal Publishing should be read cover-to-cover and discussed by every editor, every publisher, and every member of a publishing committee." Publishing Research Quarterly

"Librarians who want to see the journal business from the publisher's viewpoint will find this book interesting...." Bryce L. Allen, American Reference Books Journal

"Anyone contemplating the editing of a journal should consult Gillian Page, Robert Campbell, and Jack Meadows, Journal Publishing...the authors provide a practical - and sobering - overview of editing, producing, marketing, and managing a journal." Literary Research Guide
