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 >

Making the Case for Embracing Micropublications: Are they a way forward for scholarly publishing?

Albert Einstein said “an academic career, in which a person is forced to produce scientific writings in great amounts, creates a danger of intellectual superficiality”. In 2019, researchers have been working with the pressures of “Publish or Perish” for decades. The default response is to question the value of microPublications that are produced as a result. But what about when microPublications are carefully defined; peer review is stringently completed; and they enable publishers to more efficiently produce the “longer story” research articles with pre-validated research outputs? Are there largely unknown opportunities and values to be gained quickly? Can microPublications enable synthesizing and distilling of information and integrate this information in established repositories to create a more meaningful and greater corpus of knowledge - dare we say, global knowledgebase? more >
