Some comments from the 22nd Intensive Course in Journal Publishing - Europe

“. . . really good discussions around OA and the rapidly changing markets which is very important to know.”

 “I feel more aware of developments in the industry & future directions.”

“I believe the organisers dealt with all aspects & developments in Journals Publishing.”

“Very valuable to get broad overview of publishing industry.”

 

Scope

The course will provide a serious grounding in all aspects of learned journal publishing -- providing an in-depth understanding of the various publishing functions. It is intended that each function should be understood within the overall context of journal publishing. The presenters have been asked to describe the current journal publishing business and what could be in its future.

Who should register

This course is designed for those with at least one or two years experience in their publishing job with a scholarly or professional publishing organization. The course is not just for the big players. Members from smaller houses have found previous courses highly significant in the development of their careers. The experience may be in editorial, sales, marketing or content management roles, but the course is also valuable for people working in other roles such as finance, web publishing and technology, or customer service.
Experience has shown that participants moving into journal publishing from other publishing sectors will benefit. Building on their experience, registrants will gain a holistic understanding of the research publishing industry. The 'mechanics', functional roles and relationships with different customers are explained. Global publishing experts in senior positions work as lecturers.
