The premier course for middle and junior managers in social science & STM publishing

Comments from the 2nd Intensive Course

'Well balanced. Course Director seemed extremely sincere in her efforts to make all participants most comfortable.'

'It is successfull, I would recommend my colleagues to attend next time.'

'Quite balanced as all the material covered helped to build the case study work.'

[Use of case studies] 'Excellent and very current, allows great interaction amongst team members who come from different backgrounds in journal publishing. Allows engagement and opportunities to collaborate, exchange ideas and learn about various functions within journals publishing.'

Who should attend?

The course is designed for people working in scholarly publishing. To gain the most benefit from the course, the ideal participant will have one - three years publishing experience as junior or middle manager.

Scope of the course

Experienced practitioners provide intensive training in all the publishing operations and roles in STM, social science and humanities. The course uses the case study method -- involving the students in competitive business problem solving. The case study also enables the students to share their existing experience and insight, incorporating newly learned skills and insights.

Scholarly publishing products come in various formats - e-journals, e-Books, databases, mobile applications and, of course, print. While the course focuses on journals, other products will be put in context of the typical publishing program.
