Who should choose the title?

Reader comment on item: An Author's Lament over Article Titles

Submitted by Vinay Kolhatkar (Australia), Jan 21, 2017 at 20:47

For Savvy Street (www.thesavvystreet.com), as the Editor, I get contributing writers to suggest titles. I encourage them to choose apt, but short, question- or action- oriented titles.

If they don't follow the guideline, I suggest a few for them to pick out of. They are free to accept some, none or, all of my edits; most often >90 get accepted, on average >70%. What do I do decide, is the break out text.
