Edited by Beth L. Hewett and Charlotte Robidoux
IGI Global
Format: Paperback, Hardcover, Ebook
$140, $180, $255

Recently, there has been an increase in the need for individuals to collaborate virtually on writing projects. Virtual writing allows individuals to distribute their processes across not only an office space, but across geographic locations as well.

Virtual Collaborative Writing in the Workplace: Computer-Mediated Communication Technologies and Processes investigates the use of computer-mediated communication technologies, including everything from instant messaging and email to interaction on webpages, webcasts, and graphical user interfaces, to facilitate effective interdependent collaboration in writing projects.

This book focuses on the type of writing that typically occurs in virtual workplace settings, such as academic institutions, private and for-profit industry, and the government, in which the purpose of the writing is to convey information or argue a position rather than to socialize or entertain. What makes this book stand out from others like it is the fact that it was written collaboratively through the use of wikis and Google Docs and that it provides a meta-analysis of the development process of the book from conception to completion.
