Why Annotate? Practical Use Cases for Annotation in Workflow and on Publications

Scholarly publishers are finding cool new ways to streamline workflow and add value to publications through collaborative annotation. We tend to focus on publicly visible use cases for such tools, but the use of annotation behind the scenes is spreading fast. From QA on xml staging sites, to preparation for journal migration, to award consideration, customer visit presentations, and beyond, annotation groups are taking off. Learn how your fellow publishers are finding creative ways to use annotation internally, and also how annotation is being used to add additional information (and value) to publications through editor updates, corrections, citation context, and other practical uses.
