Graduate Publishing

Graduates now are better informed and presented with more information than ever before through online resources. At STM we feel it is important to curate content that is tailored toward people who wish to learn about the right opportunities for them and to better inform their career and self-development decision making.

To that end the Graduate Space aims to provide key information in the areas below, to raise awareness of STM publishing as a viable career option:

  • University publishing courses;
  • work experience opportunities;
  • publishing vacancies;
  • and the STM Early Career social media groups

We hope you find these resources useful for facilitating your career and progression. We would welcome any feedback on this and any other requirements for graduates entering the publishing industry.

Please see here for the recording of the STM Careers in Academic Publishing Webinar held on 13th April 2022
