About the book

Explorations of Standards of Living have most often focused exclusively on questions of average income and economic development. In this volume we explore how Community Development, Life Quality as well as Economic Development combine to present a more wholistic view of what a Community's standard of living is.

In this volume we invite scholars from a variety of disciplines to submit theoretic, comparative, and case study examinations of how we can better understand what should be meant when we evaluate a community, countries, or individuals standard of living. Explorations that provide insight into both community and individual; life quality, economic conditions, and other key metrics are welcome and encouraged. It is our hope that by bringing together a variety of disciplines to address the key question of what makes of standards of living we can gain insight into how we can increase the subjective and object well being of individuals and communities.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Josip Knapic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copy-editing and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
