- How does the editing process work?
Editing a globally crowd-sourced book is a challenging task and divided in 2 phases – firstly, done by the Editors of the Book who will edit each article, deciding the order of each article per chapter and then the order of all chapters so that the Book provides a well-structured and complete overview and tells a story from the beginning to the end. Our Editors will be in touch with each author during the editing process to clarify any questions. The Editors will also provide the preface of the book and an introduction to each chapter. The print-ready manuscript will then be submitted to Wiley, as our Publisher. The Publisher also goes through a detailed editing process. At the end the books gets prepared for its first print run before being shipped to the various warehouses globally for distribution.
- How does the voting work? How can I promote my abstract to ensure that I get lots of votes?
Everybody who signed up can vote. You can promote your abstracts offline and online and share the link to vote with your own community during Feb 2017. Voting starts on 6 Feb 2017. We will analyze your votes and add the votes of the Editors and the Publishing Team, to arrive at our final ranking of authors. The top 50 authors will be notified and invited to write their full articles. All other authors will also be notified that they did not make it on this occasion but that their contact details will still be published in the Directory at the end of the book. The list of top 50 authors will be published after submission of their full articles during Summer 2017.
- What is the deadline to submit my abstract? Is it beneficial to submit it earlier?
You have to submit your 300 word abstract by 5 February 2017. As soon as we receive your abstract, we will thank you on Social Media – thus you & your abstracts will be promoted more, the earlier you submit it.
- How many people can submit an abstract per company?
There is no limit in terms of how many abstracts we accept per company. We will only select one article per company. Articles can be co-authored i.e. written by several individuals across an organization.
How many abstracts can I submit?
You can submit up to 3 abstracts per person. Thus if you have expertise across WealthTECH, InsurTECH and RegTECH, you could submit different abstracts for each book.
