What does STM publishing have to offer, and why should it be considered as a career option? In this webinar, we explore all aspects of careers in STM publishing: Who the main players are in the academic publishing industry; what sets it apart from trade publishing; what’s on the horizon for the industry; what the different roles are in publishing; the value of publishing courses; and how you get into the industry.

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 towards 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.
