The Future of the Journal

Angus Phillips, Director of the Oxford International Centre for Publishing Studies, has edited a new book on the future of the academic journal (with Bill Cope). With contributions from a number of expert contributors, the volume looks at a range of key topics that are of vital importance to academics and publishers alike, as well as librarians, members of learned and professional societies, and policy-makers. Will the journals business continue to grow? Open access initiatives still form a relatively small part of journals publishing, but will they become the norm? How do librarians, publishers and academics see the future for journals? Will other forms of access to knowledge, and different methods of scholarly communication, become more important? How will the academic journal be affected by public policy, changes in copyright law, and the views of learned societies and research bodies?

MA Publishing student and a John Henry Brookes Scholarship

Lacey Decker was awarded a John Henry Brookes Scholarship in 2008. She writes below of her experiences on the MA Publishing programme at Oxford Brookes.

Saying I've learned a lot since coming to Oxford Brookes in September would be an understatement: proofreading and copyediting skills from the editorial side of things; how books and paper are actually manufactured from production; effective marketing strategies and how to buy and sell rights; among a host of other things.

MA Publishing student writes of his experiences after receiving an OICPS Scholarship

Arash Hejazi was awarded this OICPS scholarship, open to international students, in 2008. He has written about his experiences as an MA Publishing student at Oxford Brookes during 2008 and 2009.

I experienced the most exciting year of my life here. I met the absolutely friendly staff of the OICPS who did their best to make me feel at home and who were there for me whenever I needed any kind of help or advice. I never had a feeling of distance between me and my tutors. Now that the course is almost over, I am convinced that this relationship will not be over and they will still be there for me whenever I need them.

Aimée writes:

"Thanks to Oxford Brookes Publishing Department's excellent industry links there are plenty of opportunities for us to do work experience. New placements are regularly put up on the Brookes website.
