And so my tenure as a Production Editor begins. I have begun working on two of my journals, BOJ and BIJ (and will have ZOJ added to my list once I’ve got to grips fully with the first two). Today, after a few moments setting up some new email signatures, Mel took me through the handover notes, explaining in complex briefness everything I need to know. And then we moved on to actually getting stuck into the author corrections for the next Issue Makeup of BOJ – due tomorrow.

I’m liking it. I’m liking being concerned with the paper product instead of reactive, computer processing of online stuff. I think I’ve made the right decision. ^__^
