Publishers Weekly Signs Up Electronic Galley Service
Publishers Weekly announced a partnership with Rosetta Solutions, Inc., a leading global publishing services company. PW will be the first major book review medium to implement netGalley, a new online service designed to help publishers connect with both traditional and new media communities through electronic distribution and tracking of galleys, press materials, title metadata, and promotional plans. PW will use the netGalley application to capture information at the point of submission. One of the key benefits of netGalley to participating publishers will be the ability to upload vital book and promotional information. Hachette's Orbit imprint is the only current "pilot" participant.
