What is a ‘primary collaborator’?

When assigning someone to a new piece of work, the first person you list will act as the ‘primary’ collaborator. This makes them the person responsible for submitting the first draft and any subsequent back-and-forth passing of the assignment to different people on their desk.

We prefer to hold one person accountable as the primary collaborator on every assignment, as it reduces the likelihood of two (or more) people leaving submission and re-submission responsibilities to their colleagues, resulting in inactivity.

Editors can always edit and order the collaborators on any assignments, on the far-right of the assignment overview.
