About the book

The book will display various topics regarding contemporary issues compared to established journalism as the platform for sharing tips and techniques in journalism for all to reflect and ponder the beauty of writing in times of disaster as experienced by the writers to be shared with all. The contemporary issues are much related to the use of new media especially those related to social media where the truth may be questionable when fake news is rampant. This may lead to the issue of believably, credibility, and trust of the masses, especially when the news is related to their lives, for example, Covid-19. The safety and security of the victims and the unaffected people will be questionable as the public may question the news unless it is from the government and respected agencies. Therefore, this book intends to share the possible ways to detect trusted and credible news.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Nera Butigan

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, copyediting 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 preparing their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines to 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.
