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.

Joachim Engelland, STM Director of Education and Training, will direct the course. Speakers come from Asia, Europe and the U. S., ensuring that industry specifics in Asian countries are addressed and the global nature of the journals business is always presented.
