I have been thinking about process we have in publishing the articles in developerWorks. Have got couple ideas where we could make it interesting to the people who wants to read/contribute/develop.
- We do have Editor's wish list for every zone, how about Reader's Wish List?
- Specific to India, we do have a process to send the abstract to the developerWorks team. How about publishing the process so that the contributer know whom to send the abstracts to?
- It would be good if we could create an activity and assign to the respective owners (either editor, sme etc) at every stage of publication process. For this I need to find out if there is any way I could re assign the work (activity in this case) to some one once I am done with my part. For example: I submit an abstract - Assign review activity to SME, SME reviews and thinks it can go ahead, gives a go ahead and assigns the work to the Editor, Editor in turn gets it reviewed ... so on .. Am I making sense here or is it sounding too confusing ??
- How about having a BPM system in place for the whole publication process - from abstract submission to publishing the article hmm??
Let me think hard and get more ideas on this... I know the process has to be made easier and faster ....
