People Behind the People

This page is dedicated to the "People behind the people behind the papers". In other words individuals such as publishers, research funders and journal editors who facilitate academic publishing and who are often instrumental and building others' academic careers. Below is a transcript of a round table discussion that took place at the 2011 Students' Psychology Conference that provides some interesting insights into what goes on behind the scenes in academic publishing. Please be aware that this is a raw, unedited document. The document will be edited and polished soon, so come back and re-check it periodically.
