As a society with a decades-long history of self-publishing our journals, the decision to seek a contract publishing partnership was one that required much careful thought and consideration. KWF Consulting expertly guided ASN through the RFP process every step of the way, from selecting the right publishers to engage, based on KWF Consulting’s extensive knowledge and connections throughout the industry, to eventually negotiating an agreement with a partner who fulfills both our needs and our mission. Lisa and the KWF team took the time to understand our current operations, and ensured our future publisher could meet and exceed our expectations. They offered a detailed but easy-to-grasp financial analysis that not only compared publisher offers, but also illustrated how our self-publishing financial return could be improved across our varied portfolio of journals. Most importantly, KWF Consulting’s broad experience and practical insights lent us comfort throughout a process that could otherwise have been very stressful!
