In Discussion by Edward Nawotka

Today, it’s all about digital. That said, not everyone has fully implemented digital databases and workflow systems. Many publishers maintain a hybrid workflow and are somewhere in the middle of a transition. So tell us, how far along are you?

And tell us why in the comments.
