Building a good relationship between the author and editor is an important part of the publication process. There are elements of trust, respect, and collaboration that need to be navigated with care and clear communication. Each relationship is different and will grow over the course of a project. This roundtable brings together Nadine Ryan (moderator), Deanna Reder, and June Scudeler to share some experiences and engage in a conversation with participants about the many aspects of author-editor relationships. Attendees are invited to participate directly in this roundtable discussion; enrolment is limited.
