Lion Lounge Press is proud to present the first of many Duels. The Albion
Beatnik in Oxford has graciously offered up its domain for the evening in
question, and for this wondrous occasion is going to metamorph into a
festive highbrow arena, a flaming creative writing colosseum of
sophisticated pleasures, where four erudite writers will be pitted against
both each other and a Lion that's packing fancy words and a bundle of
surprises, with nothing but a quill and their wits to defend themselves
with.

The Future of Journal Publishing - OPuS and SYP event

Oxford Brookes University: Gipsy Lane Campus

Speaker: Michael Mabe

Thursday 26 November (Please note new date)

18.30 drinks  19.30 talk begins

For one night only, the SYP and OPuS will be joining forces and gazing into the future to consider whether academic and STM journals have a future. How will new digital technologies and new ways of online communication affect how we publish and use journals, and the greater academic publishing community? Will researchers still communicate and be evaluated by journal publication?

To guide us through these troubled times, we will be hearing from Michael Mabe, CEO of the international association of scientific, technical, medical and scholarly publishers (STM). Be sure to make a date in your diary, for what promises to be a fascinating talk.

This event will take place at the Gipsy Lane Campus of Oxford Brookes University (refreshments will be served before the event in the Buckley Building and the talks will be in the Main Lecture Theatre).

Eyewitness: The rise and fall of Dorling Kindersley - Publishing research seminar

Christopher Davis

Publishing Research Seminar

Tuesday 10 November, 5.00 pm

Room BG10, Buckley Building, Gipsy Lane Campus, Oxford Brookes University

All are welcome - informal drinks after the seminar

By the close of the last millennium Dorling Kindersley had become one of the most recognisable brands in publishing. Across the range of illustrated household reference titles, from children's books to travel guides, its distinctive look of colourful images cut out against a white background could be seen on bookshelves throughout the country - and indeed the publishing world.

Christopher Davis is uniquely positioned to tell the story of DK's rise and fall. He joined the company at its foundation and in due course became Group Publisher. The narrative he provides is a dual one, encompassing the visionary genius of Peter Kindersley and the publishing revolution he fomented, and charting the remarkable, sometimes precarious, frequently hilarious, roller-coaster ride as the company grew from a handful of people in a studio in South London to a substantial global business.

How can independent publishers survive the crunch?

Pinching their Pennies: How can independent publishers survive the credit crunch?

Bridget Shine (Independent Publishers Guild) and Giles Lewis (How To Books)

Taking Place: Room BG10 Buckley Building Gipsy Lane Campus, Oxford Brookes University

It goes without saying that there is not an industry that has not been affected by the current economic crisis, and publishing is one such industry that has had to tighten its belt and pull up its socks in response to many high street shops shuttering their windows. But what new opportunities can be found amongst the chaos? What type of landscape will emerge after the dust has settled?
