The Digital Editorial Team


In the digital age, publication practice is changing in a paradigmatic way. New technologies and methods are in constant interaction with the scientific process. In this context, the editorial team sees itself as a supporting and service-oriented entity - as a digital editorial team. Our range of tasks spans from consulting and mediation, project management and conceptual design, mark-up and enrichment, standardisation and norming, data management and licensing, transformation and archiving, cataloguing and networking, layout and editing, distribution and communication, training and support.
