Last year, we made great progress in our ambition to make author services more collaborative, affordable and transparent. We have signed up over 850
experts in a variety of services and subject areas. And we have partnered with fantastic, innovative publishers, such as Hindawi, Brill, Emerald, and FEMS. Moreover, with our average expert rating of 4.85 out of 5, we have demonstrated that bringing authors in direct contact with experts in author services is bringing the advantages that we hoped for.
This year,we plan to increase the number of partnerships with publishers and societies.
Moreover, we are recruiting a marketing colleague to spread the word about Peerwith within the academic community. A focus for me personally will be to increase our partnerships with academic institutions. By allowing researchers and students of an institution to easily access Peerwith, further supported by tools such as pre-payment solutions, we hope to make it even easier for authors and other researchers to find an expert to take their academic work to the next level.
Overall, we are confident that Peerwith will increasingly play an important role in scholarly communications. If you have any suggestions on how we can improve our services, do not hesitate to let me know via firstname.lastname@example.org.
All the best wishes for 2017!
