Abstract

Editing or publishing a book in interactive electronic format is challenging and requires careful decision making, long term planning and commitment to be successful. What does one would need to do to edit, author and publish an ebook successfully? In this panel session the panellists will share their experiences of editing and publishing an e-book. They will show examples of an e-book and discuss how e-books are different from print books, and why one might be interested in publishing an e-book. eBook chapter authors participating at the conference will be invited to share their experience in working in an electronic environment. The discussion will reveal the importance of social networking tools for 21st century publications.
