STM / CAST Training Day

This one-day seminar is designed for people working in scholarly publishing and primarily with journals. Participants 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 can also benefit from publishing training events. Experienced practitioners will provide intensive training in all the publishing operations and roles in STM, social science and humanities. 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 programme.
