The Curtin University Book Sprint resulted in a guide for all so-called Supporters of Research Communication, a term which is yet to be embraced by all the people who do this work. This book will however be a step towards defining this motley community of people doing the behind-the-scenes work of academic research and publishing. Cutting it very fine, with a shorter and more slimmed down Book Sprint than we are used to, the last day of the Sprint only had two participants! It was also the first time we got to test out our DIY cover generator which worked really well. We’re always for speed and cutting out the steps in between.
