BIC Breakfast: Towards a Greener Book Industry

In the UK we are becoming increasingly concerned about climate change and more and more of us are thinking about how we might take some responsibility for making our world greener. I attended theBIC(书籍行业沟通)早餐,听到出版业正在发生的事情。

Carnstone’s Book Chain Project speakers outlined how they’ve been working with 28 publishers to review issues in the supply chain. There are 3 main areas they’ve looked at:

劳动与环境

Labour standards and work conditions at printers need to be regularly assessed. There is the issue of modern slavery particularly in the Far East and the onus is on publishers to monitor this.

化学安全和材料

有很多出版商可以做啊f materials choices. However, it’s not as simple as stopping using glitter as children’s publishers need to supply the demands of the market (and it turns out biodegradable glitter really isn’t?!)

森林采购

Publishers can look at using sustainable wood for pulp eg buy from mills that source wood from plantations in place of supporting deforestation.

尼尔·斯普林尔(Neil Springall),企鹅随机院分销明显令我们道德义务开始做出改变,推动计划专注于减少PRH的塑料使用。他有一些伟大的报价包括:“对我们星球的最大威胁是相信其他人会拯救它。”罗伯特天鹅

令人难以置信的超过40%的全球塑料使用in packaging. Publishers mainly use plastic for shrink wrapping and carton filling to protect books.

After only a few months, PRH have already achieved a 47% reduction and are aiming for 75% soon.

One major change has been a move to ‘multi use pallet lids’ – these are an expensive product but save both on huge amounts of shrink wrap and labour time. They now employ 4 people full-time to shred all their cardboard which is then used as packaging material in place of plastic. Brilliant!


另一个问题正在减少用于在打印机,分销中心和书店之间运输书籍的里程。这在最终扬声器上很好地领先

Dave Thompson of Publiship gave a round-up of shipping and gave some fascinating facts – did you know that:

  • 90% of world trade is moved by sea
  • S.hipping containers were only introduced in the 1950s and widespread adoption from the ‘60s is the largest contributor to globalisation (and not the net!)

T.这里have been improvements in engineering over recent years helping reduce emissions but container ships still emit enormous levels of Carbon Dioxide, Sulphur Dioxide and Nitrogen Dioxide (international shipping accounts for 2.1% of all CO2 emissions). Publishers need to get books from their printers to countries around the world and there are other options:

Clearly, shipping is the best option and ‘slow steaming’ (takes c. 1 week longer) saves huge amounts of fuel and emissions.

我也学会了压载,船只承担巨大的一个mounts of water to stabilise as they use up fuel / when empty of their cargo. They load the ballast water in the source port then discharge at the destination port with issues that they’re potentially discharging polluted water and predatory sea creatures. Fortunately there are laws in place to help avoid this now. Thanks to Alaina-Marie Bassett of BIC for organizing such an interesting event.

Who are Jessica Kingsley Publishers?

我们在书架上度过了美妙的夜晚:昨天遇到Jessica Kingsley出版社的活动!很高兴从小组听到JKP如何工作,他们如何发展他们的名单,他们如何对他们的观众市场以及使他们与其他出版商不同的东西。

JKP通过出版专业文献来刊登在自闭症中。随着意识的增长,他们的名单增长,现在他们现在是市场领导者。JKP识别利基市场,并确定特定人群的需求。

Here we have summarised what each of the speakers had to say about their role within JKP.

Lisa Clark – Editorial Director

Lisa has been at JKP since 2007.

JKP published their first book on autism in 2006. The list now comprises of 650 books from picture books for children to parenting memoirs and is an internationally recognised list.

How does JKP maintain and develop an established list? It is important that they stay ahead of the curve and maintain creativity. It is key for editors to stay in touch with the community by meeting people constantly, attending events and being present online. Editors do this by tuning in to the debates on twitter so they can identify emerging topics. This network brings authors to JKP.

JKP champions strength and difference. Editors identify sensitivity to readership, to language for example, so that they can maintain strong relationships with communities. Lisa says that this sensitivity is what makes JKP stand out compared to other publishers who dabble in and out of these markets.

他们冠军自闭症思维,为挑战提供支持。去年8/10顶级电子书来自自闭症清单,他们现在正在寻求创造更多的数字内容。

What drew Lisa to JKP?Lisa fell into her role but cannot imagine herself leaving, after being at JKP for 12 years.

Andrew James, Senior Commissioning Editor

安德鲁管理性别和多样性列表。该名单填补了市场上的差距,现在成功地占据了它。今年JKP将在自闭症和变性人之间的重叠上发布他们的第一本书。安德鲁说,其他出版商可能会看到一些议题,也是太大的东西,但对于jkp来说,他们是一个金矿!

建立一个清单需要很多研究;编辑不能盲目,相反,他们需要了解语言和术语,社区和当前辩论所面临的问题。他们还可以查看其他出版商如何接近主题,他们做错了什么以及他们做到了什么。

JKP publishes in a vertical way; they publish resources for children, teens and adults. This means that they have left no opportunity for other publishers to muscle in on their market.

安德鲁说,作者是专家!作者知道市场想要什么。JKP不与代理商合作,而不是他们在社区内部委托。

T.he challenge is to stay ahead of the pack and identify new audiences to reach out to. JKP avoids trends and has moved away from memoirs and introductory books.

Andrew also stays on top of what is new on social media, what is being written about on blogs. YouTube is also a platform for people to share and speak about their experiences.

What drew Andrew to JKP?Andrew used to work in academic publishing but he got sick of monographs. Andrew loves that in the morning he can be working on a children’s book and in the afternoon he can be working on a professional book. Andrew is also passionate about LGBT rights.

S.arah Plows – Marketing Manager

T.he marketing team is made up of 6 marketing executives who each have responsibility for a certain list and market towards a certain group.

T.he marketing team immerse themselves in the needs and concerns of their customers. They do this by communicating at every point through email, conferences, over the phone and by reading specialist press and twitter. This allows the team to be aware of sensitivities.

T.heir long-term strategy for the niche market is to build their mailing list (230,000 contacts) of already engaged customers who have made a commitment to the brand. They can then use email marketing to target these contacts.

内容营销也很重要;博客每年有200,000次击中。团队确保内容尽可能可发现,例如通过框架标题作为人们可以在Google搜索中使用的问题。

T.he marketing team also leverage their author relationships and connections. Their authors may have links to professional organisations, some authors work for NGO’s.

什么让莎拉到jkp?S.arah loves that JKP has a wide remit to be innovative and take risks. Publishing a diverse range for a diverse audience and meeting audience needs is rewarding for Sarah.

Lily Bowden – Senior Publicity and Marketing Executive

莉莉说,自闭症,性别和心理健康目前拥有最宣传的上诉。

“Own voices” is a buzz term at the moment with authors sharing their own experiences. It is important for Lily to put the author’s voice at the forefront of her pitches and to find something relatable within own voices stories.

莉莉将她的作者视为知识的融合,他们是专家和最好的人来学习和与之交谈。这不仅与作者产生了信任,他们的故事将以正确的方式被告知,但也为百合信心投放故事。

莉莉已经获悉,opp大小姐就可以了ortunities. It can feel counter intuitive to miss publicity opportunities but it is her job to make sure they are the right fit for her authors. A learning experience was with 2 authors, 1 who was transgender and both on the autism spectrum who were invited to the ITV show This Morning, it was an uncomfortable and awkward interview.

Lily finds allies in the media, for example journalists and publications sensitive to the cause or already producing content about current issues. This means that stories will not be twisted to fit a house style, but instead their profile will be raised organically because journalists are on board and supporting the authors.

What drew Lily to JKP?Lily loves the variety and being able to work on books that teach you something. Lily hopes she has been made a better and more liberal person.

Pippa Adams – Special Sales and Rights Assistant

销售量for niche publishers differs in that they do a lot of work with NGOs and support groups rather than to the big supermarkets and retailers. JKP builds and maintains relationships with specialist booksellers and suppliers.

JKP’s books are stocked by specialist retailers who are in close contact with the communities they work with. The booksellers may not be huge but it is important to build strong relationships with them so that their books reach communities that these booksellers engage with every day.

皮帕还建立了与学术专业人士和图书馆供应商的关系。

Pippa uses her authors as a resource. For example, an author may head up an organisation that could present an opportunity for book sales. Local authority and government spending can be opaque in terms of how the money is being spent, however authors may have contacts, which allows Pippa to spot trends.

关于翻译权,后面的列表非常重要。由于不同国家变得更加了解,有巨大的兴趣。例如,最近这是俄罗斯患有自闭症的情况。随着知识增长和传播,机会有机地实现。

什么让Pippa到JKP?皮帕以前在中东地区的教育出版中工作,因为她的弟弟有自闭vwin手机客户端症,就意识到JKP。当有机会在英国工作,当JKP看她跳起来时。从权利和销售角度来看,她喜欢知道她正在散布好事而不是书籍。

行业聚光灯: Temping

What is temping?

出版商联系我们,以便在需要额外的双手以帮助他们达到截止日期或者忙碌时,请联系我们。这些角色也是紧急的,几乎立即开始。我们的客户还需要Temps来覆盖病假或覆盖,同时正在招募新的永久团队成员。他们甚至可能考虑临时!温度范围可以从2天到6个月,可以进一步扩展,甚至导致永久性的作用。

T.emping with Atwood Tate

T.he Temps/Freelancers team cover roles across the entire publishing industry including trade and educational, Academic, Science as well as professional and B2B, digital and print. They also cover administration, finance, HR, marketing, and sales.

团队是:

Kellie Millar(Temps/Freelancers Manager)kelliemillar@德赢官网atwoodtate.co.uk.

Novia Kingshott(Senior Recruitment Consultant)NoviaKingshott@atwoodtate.co.uk

安娜斯瓦文(Temps/Freelancers Administrator)AnnaSlevin@德赢官网atwoodTate.co.uk.

Anna是一位前阿特伍德泰特临时,并在应付账款和出版物团队中有一些管理员展示。由于她可以在周五每周支付时间,并获得假期支付,以便他们在年假开始的“锅”。Temps可以按小时支付或根据工作有一天的费率。

Our clients aren’t all publishers but have a busy publishing team. These also include a royal academic society, a charity or even a standards or ratings publisher. A lot of the time when temping, skills are readily transferrable and employers are more flexible regarding your work background. Marketing roles are particularly easy to transfer across or specialist knowledge such as science or law can be very useful in editorial for those specialist subject publishers.

How will temping benefit me and is an extension guaranteed?

S.ometimes temps cover a role more senior or more junior than they would typically expect. This could be in a different area to one they have worked in before or one they do because they love what the publisher works on and the job. Temping is great for exploring the industry and various companies.

临时角色往往会说“extensions possible” this is because roles can be extended for more days and weeks or a contract on the publisher’s payroll could be offered. There are no guarantees but it does happen and you are more than welcome to apply for internal vacancies while working for that publisher which may not be available to the general public.

Candidates do come to Atwood Tate specifically wanting temp or freelance work but quite often they are looking for a permanent job but don’t yet have the required experience so the Temps team can help to get that ‘foot in the door’. Once a candidate has a bit more experience in publishing, the Permanent Team can help look for a permanent role in publishing. Kellie and Novia can help you to build up that in-house experience.

What is the recruitment process for temping?

A role comes in. We tell you about it / You express interest. We put you forward. If the client chooses your CV you can start working immediately or there may be a telephone interview or even a face to face interview. Interviews are less formal and shorter with temp roles.

As a Temp: work hard + submit timesheets + be paid on Fridays = WORK IN PUBLISHING!!!

(You also learn a lot no matter how well you know the role and get to work with some really lovely people.)

欢迎来到Atwood Tate的行业聚光灯系列,我们落后于我们每个招聘办公桌的幕后,为您提供与Atwood Tate合作的勺子。T.his week, Olivia returns, focusing on Marketing and Publicity roles.

marketing strategy image

marketing

What do Marketers in publishing do?

marketers are responsible for promoting a publisher’s products or services to their target audience, whether that be to individual consumers (B2C) or other businesses (B2B). Marketing can broadly be split into traditional (e.g. print advertisements, newsletters, flyers, brochures) and digital (e.g. social media, email, websites, paid search, SEO). The majority of marketing roles in publishing combine the two or are digital focused, so it’s advisable to keep your digital skills up to date.

marketers have many different channels and techniques at their disposal and roles will vary depending on the nature of the product or service and target audience. For example, if you are marketing books to teachers you are likely to produce a lot of visually appealing marketing collateral and do a lot of direct mail campaigns. On the other hand, if you are marketing a medical journal to doctors you will likely target them with intellectually stimulating email campaigns.

Do you need a marketing qualification to work in marketing?

Absolutely not. It’s something employers might find desirable but a lot of people start out in an entry level role and build up from there. Some people choose a qualification once they’ve built up some experience and decided on an area to specialise in. The Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) and Institute of Direct and Digital Marketing (IDM) both provide qualifications which can be studied for alongside a full-time job. Your employer may even cover the cost of the course.

Where can a marketing job take me?

marketing is great in that the skills and knowledge you develop are very transferable and will be useful for so many employers and different industries. There are a wealth of marketing roles in publishing. Some people choose to stay in one area of publishing for most of their career while others move around different sectors, which is possible to do, especially if you have particular skills or a specialism which is in high demand.

As there are so many marketing roles there are lots of opportunities for career progression and chances to move into management positions or very specialised roles.

publicist author interview

Publicity/PR

What do Publicists in publishing do?

Publicists are responsible for managing relationships with authors and dealing with their agents. Their job is to secure press coverage for books in the print, broadcast and online media so they are expected to build strong press relationships. They are also responsible for organising and attending events with authors, such as book launches and signings, interviews, author tours and appearances at literary festivals. Publicists need to stay informed about new trends and developments in their area of publishing and they often attend editorial meetings and contribute to pitches for new acquisitions.

所有关于派对和施工者的PR吗?

Yes, you might get the chance to work with high-profile and celebrity authors. You may also work with new and debut authors, which can be just as exciting and rewarding. Regardless of author list, there’s a lot of hard work and relationship building which goes into making any campaign successful.

Do you need a big network of media contacts?

Initially no. In junior roles you will be assisting PR Managers with their campaigns and general admin. As time goes on, you will start to build up a network of contacts. If you are working on particular titles, this may become quite specialised. For example, if you’re working with cookery authors, you will build up contacts with cookery magazines and food bloggers.

What skills do you need to succeed in marketing and publicity?

营销和宣传角色密切相关,需要类似的技能。任何想要在其中一个角色取得成功的人都需要卓越的通信和关系建设技能。他们是忙碌的工作,所以优秀的组织技能也是必不可少的。创造力也很重要。一些出版商与小预算合作,因此您必须具有创新和资源的旨在提出新的和创新的想法。及时了解市场的趋势也是关键。

特别是营销人员通常需要具有强大的文章技巧和良好的细节。Photoshop和Indesign经验是一个加号,特别是在抵押品中的繁重作用。软件技能很重要,因为您将期望使用营销计划,例如CRM,电子邮件,社交媒体,营销自动化软件和分析工具。有一种丰富的程序,这些程序做了不同的事情,所以如果你能快速挑选它们就会很好。在发布时越来越需要视频和音频内容创建技能,特别是在使用在线产品时。

行业聚光灯:生产和运营

欢迎来到Atwood Tate’sindustry spotlight series, where we go behind the scenes of each of our recruitment desks to give you the scoop on working with Atwood Tate. This week’s entry is with克莱尔陈那who works on Science, Technical, Medical, Distribution, Operations and Production roles across London, the Home Counties and East Anglia. In this entry, Clare will be breaking down how to get into Production, Distribution and Operations in the publishing sector.

生产

生产

What does ‘production’ mean in publishing?

T.这里is a wide range of production roles in publishing, most commonly Production Assistant, Production Controller, Production Editor and Production Manager. Production itself can be varied– covering printed and digital books, printed and digital journals and more. The skill set of a Production Manager in trade books versus a professional publisher can be very different, so it is all down to the content of what is being published to determine what kind of production knowledge you should have or what duties you will be doing in the role. So a role in children’s books will probably be highly illustrated and need someone with a good eye for detail and 4 colour experience.

What will be the academic requirement?

没有具体要求进入生产作用。您需要展示大量的项目和供应商管理以及出色的沟通技能,因为大多数供应商将是海上的。您还需要有很好的软件技能,即Excel电子表格,Indesign和Adobe CS,Biblio3(特别是贸易书籍发布者)或XML发布(用于数字出版)。

What background will the clients be looking for?

Your previous experience plays a significant role when it comes to applying for production jobs. Production roles are not as fluid as one would think when it comes to switching roles. For instance, if you wanted to become a Production Controller in a children’s book publisher, you should have novelty book production experience and also knowledge of European toy safety legislation. And if you are to work for a journals publisher, you will be working as a Production Editor and dealing with external typesetters to get the journals published which often also requires copy-editing skills. More details about Production Editor will be discussed in my next blog when I explore STM editorial roles – keep your eyes open for that!

Is there good progression in production?

T.这里is a good progression and a clear career strucutre and you will also become a production specialist as you build up solid knowledge from previous experience. One thing to bear in mind is that production technology is ever changing so keeping up with new software and technology is essential. The book industry is a great example: decades ago, it was all about off-set printing, but now we have digital printing as well as e-book and audiobook production.

What key skills do you need?

A good learning attitude is a must. Good communication skills, project management, time management, account management as you will manage different suppliers (most often overseas) and there could be pressing deadlines from time to time so being organised is important too. Numerical skills are also important as you’ll could be working with Excel, calculating and negotiating costs for reprints and shipping etc.

Distribution and Operations

运营

What roles are there in the Distribution and Operations in publishing?

我们处理一系列分销和运营角色。我们招募的角色示例包括库存助理,库存协调员,股票控制器,供应链管理员和运营负责人。分销和运营在出版社中扮演一个重要的部分,在需要时监测库存并安排重印或库存运动。

客户会寻找哪些技能或知识?

Analytical skills and excellent software knowledge. You will be using Excel spreadsheets a lot, including Excel formulas. Depending on the publishers, you might also need to have certain software knowledge. Communication and organisation skills are also essential as you will be coordinating with in-house colleagues from Design, Editorial, Rights, Sales & Marketing as well as external suppliers.

Is there good progression?

S.imilar to Production roles, Distribution and Operations are also a specialist roles with good progression. You may eventually lead the team and be promoted to Inventory Manager and Head of Operations. Keeping up with the latest data management technology will also lead you a long way in the field. Candidates with Production experience may move laterally into Distribution and Operations for a change in their career path. There are always new opportunities!

If you have any questions about Production, Distribution or Operations roles, feel free to get in touch with Clare atclarechan@德赢官网atwoodtate.co.uk.!!

行业聚光灯:区域出版(牛津办事处)

欢迎来到Atwood Tate的行业聚光灯系列,我们落后于我们每个招聘办公桌的幕后,为您提供与Atwood Tate合作的勺子。本周的条目是Claire Carrington-SmithandFaye Jones那who work across all locations excluding London,the Home Counties and East Anglia. They cover all sectors except B2B.

Introduction

欢迎来到the Oxford desk, which is looked after by Claire Carrington-Smith, Senior Publishing Recruitment Consultant and Faye Jones, Trainee Publishing Recruitment Consultant. We cover all roles in all sectors outside London, Home Counties and East Anglia (except B2B) so we are a busy desk over in our small office in lovely Summertown in Oxford.

今天,我们将重点关注区域出版,并为我们涵盖的行业和伦敦以外可用的角色提供一些洞察力。

Are there publishing jobs outside of London and Oxford?

Yes! There are publishers working outside of London and Oxford in all areas of publishing around the UK and Internationally.

We have work with publishers based in areas that you would not necessarily associate with publishing and we are currently working on roles based in Northamptonshire, Wales and Sweden.

most UK trade publishers are based in London and many candidates who want to start their career in publishers move there and do not necessarily think of Oxford or other areas of the UK. Many Educational and Academic publishers are in Oxford so if you want to get into either of those sectors Oxford is the place to be.

We do have some roles that are homeworking and this can be a big help for candidates with a long commute.

What areas of Publishing do you cover on the Oxford desk?

We cover a wide range of publishing sectors but in Oxford we mainly work on roles within educational, academic and professional publishing, however we do get the occasional role within Trade publishing but these roles do not come up very often.

We have worked on STM, Charity and production services roles and do get work with publishers within these sectors regularly as well.

你涵盖了哪种角色?

在牛津,我们涵盖了一切,我们可以同时在牛津和英国的不同地区工作,所以我们在我们覆盖的角色中是相当多样的。

我们与员工15至25名成员之间的许多较小的独立出版商合作。我们没有获得许多宣传角色,因为我们不与许多贸易出版商合作。

Who do you work with?

我们涵盖了伦敦,家庭县和东安里亚境外的所有角色和所有职位。我们经常与牛津和出境的教育和学术出版商合作,我vwin手机客户端们经常访问我们的常客,谈谈候选人和未来的角色即将到来。

We do work with some publishers on international roles and are looking forward to working on more roles outside the UK in future.

How does the Oxford desk differ from London?

T.he Oxford desk is not specialised in one specific area of publishing, meaning that we get to work on all roles with a variety of different publishers. In some ways, our job is more difficult as we are often searching for candidates that are not interested in moving outside of London or having a long commute into work, which is completely understandable. In other ways, our job is really enjoyable because we get to expand our knowledge on the publishing industry as a whole and look at developments within all publishing roles and sectors.

Do you have any advice for candidates looking to move out of London?

If you’re looking to work in publishing outside of London you need to be flexible with the sector that you want to go into as well as the location. Some of the publishers that we work with are not based in the south east of England and if you want to secure a job in publishing outside of Oxford or London you will need to think about relocating.

Being flexible on the location, job sector and sometimes the salary can be beneficial when looking for a job outside of London, the more flexible you are the better!

If you have any questions about publishing outside of London get in contact with the consultants in Oxford,Claire Carrington-SmithandFaye Jones

行业聚光灯: Sales and Customer Service

欢迎来到Atwood Tate的行业聚光灯系列,我们落后于我们每个招聘办公桌的幕后,为您提供与Atwood Tate合作的勺子。本周的条目是奥利维亚君士奈斯,谁在伦敦和东安里亚的销售,营销,宣传和客户服务作用上工作。除B2B外,她涵盖了所有部门。

在这种挑剔的奥利维亚将专注于销售和客户服务角色,并将告诉您更多关于这些工作涉及的信息和所需技能的类型。在以后,她将涵盖营销和宣传职位。

T.ypes of roles

出版中的销售角色非常多样化。无论您是侧重于现有客户的客户经理或专注于带来新业务的业务发展经理,您的工作就是与客户建立关系并说服他们购买公司的产品或服务。

关于销售工作的伟大事物之一是您可以处理成品,无论是儿童书籍,科学期刊还是在线学习平台。您还会对市场进行真正的洞察力以及客户想要或需求。这知识对整个业务非常宝贵,可以用来影响未来发表的内容以及产品如何向客户销售。

S.ome sales roles will include elements of customer service and if you’re selling digital products or software, you may train customers how to use it.

客户服务角色与销售密切相关,涉及与客户后销售后,通常通过电话或电子邮件处理。共同责任包括接听订单或股票与股票相关查询或解决问题和投诉。

Do sales roles involve lots of cold calling?

A common misconception is that sales roles involve endless cold calling. It’s not usually like that in publishing. You might be selling books to bookshops or retailers, or software to universities, libraries and hospitals. Therefore you’ll need to meet customers face to face and adopt a softer and more consultative sales approach.

销售中的付费是多少?

销售工资经常超过其他角色。除了您的基本年薪外,您还可能会根据您为本公司提供的金额和收入的金额获得奖金或佣金。这可能是每月支付,季度或每年。它有时有时是不明的,所以你的收入能力是无限的。

有没有进展的空间?

T.这里is really good room for progression in sales. You could start out in a sales support or administrative role and gradually progress to managing your own accounts and then eventually overseeing a team of sales people.

One of the advantages of sales roles is that the skills you develop are really transferable so you could find yourself working for a variety of publishers and selling to a variety of customers. Skilled sales people will always be in demand.

Whilst there aren’t nearly as many customer service roles out there, there is still good room for progression and you could end up managing a team of Customer Service advisors and overseeing the strategy for the department. Like sales, the skills you develop are very transferable and customer service people often find themselves working for a range of organisations.

你去旅行吗?

销售量roles will usually involve some element of travel but the amount will depend largely on the role. You might look after a specific territory, which could be as big as London or the whole of the UK. Some roles can cover regions as large as Europe, the Middle East, Latin America or Asia. International sales people may find they are travelling at least 50% of their time. If you like being out and about, a field based or international sales role would suit you.

On the other hand, some roles are more office based, with most sales being conducted over the phone or via email and only occasional visits to customers being needed. You may find the opportunities to travel increase as you progress into more senior positions.

Customer service roles are usually office based but depending on the company you work for, you may take occasional trips to visit colleagues in other offices, which could be in the UK or overseas.

Academic Publishing

Academic publishing is intended to communicate the latest research and developments to the academic community. We work with a rage of smaller and larger publishers and societies who publish scholarly journals, books, eBooks, text books and reference works for researchers, students and academic libraries. It is common for universities and museums to publish academic books, aimed particularly at academics and we also work with academic associations, who share information with their members or the public. Depending on the discipline, academic publishing can be split into two sectors, humanities and social sciences (HSS) and scientific, technical and medical (STM). A common term you will hear when applying for academic journals roles is the peer review process, which is a procedure of reviewing and evaluating the quality and validity of articles prior to publication. You can read more about the process这里and on the websites of the majority of academic publishers. Common roles you will see us looking for are Editorial Assistants, Publications Editors, Commissioning Editors and Publishers.
