The Metadata Power Hour

Feel like you hear too much about metadata? Not enough? Find it confusing? Of vital importance? Yes to all of the above! In very practical ways, metadata has different implications for different roles in scholarly communications and like so many topics close to us, it can be hard to sift through the available information to find out what it means to you. Regardless of experience, understanding or enthusiasm (or lack thereof), metadata is important to us all and this session aims to show you how. more >

Introduction to Journals Marketing - Virtual Classroom

An essential introduction to the changing and challenging role of promoting journals in today’s market, which starts by considering the context in which we are striving to get noticed, including competing with free online resources, declining academic library budgets, and the shift away from journals and on to articles. How does all of this impact on the marketing we should be doing? How do we engage with audiences with so many demands on the attention? We also discuss the sector’s increased emphasis on author and society relationships and on ‘input marketing’ – encouraging high quality submissions and therefore marketable content. more >

Project Management for Publishing

Projects are vital for all publishing organizations to move forward and implement change. Everyone gets involved in them. They may involve developing new products, new processes and systems, adopting new technologies, reaching new markets, acquiring new business, selecting new suppliers or improving existing processes. Projects are also challenging and often fail to achieve the desired results. This course provides those managing projects as well as those working on them with a template and many supporting tools that can be applied to all projects, large or small, to help ensure successful outcomes. It has a strong emphasis on getting things right at the outset because this is where most problems with projects arise. The programme is highly practical and includes break-out sessions using real project scenarios provided by delegates as well as providing publishing case studies as examples of what works and what doesn’t. more >
