Managing a journal isn’t as uniform as it was just five years ago. Due to new services and innovations, editors now have many options to help their journal grow, even in the face of economic pressure. This panel gathers writers and editors from five journals that operate from all online to hard copy only, and everything in between. They will discuss the benefits and pitfalls of their methods, how writers have responded, and how varying methods affect the quality of work they receive for publication.
