Publishing department visits the Frankfurt Book Fair

Several staff from the publishing department accompanied by 30 students from the MA Publishing Programme have returned from a highly successful visit to the 2005 Frankfurt Book Fair.

Many publishing companies obliged the Brookes visitors with appointments on their stands and they gave much valuable information about the way that the rights deals are struck at Frankfurt and at Book Fairs generally. Although this was a short visit, the 'Frankfurter Buchmesse' is an intense but inspiring adventure.

Long Live the Book

The International Book Conference finished today with presentations from a range of speakers. The overall conclusion was that the Book will not die and in fact is flourishing. Yes, we heard about problems in the Book Trade on the High Street, Academic Publishing and even the death nell of the monograph. But still the book is even more accessible through new channels and technologies.

epublishing Prizes

Harcourt Education, a publishing company with local offices in Oxford, have been involved with the MA epublishing module for the fourth year running. Small teams of students have developed new electronic prototype products based on Harcourt's Heinemann secondary school books. At the end of the module the prototype websites were presented and in addition to each one being graded as normal, a representative from Harcourt was in attendance to choose first and second prize winners. Ian Cavey, e-Learning and Online Manager for Harcourt Education, was impressed with the students and reported that "all the presentations were of a very high standard. All the groups had obviously carried out a large amount of research and came up with some original and innovative ideas." The first prize of £350 went to a group of three students, Julian Littlewood, Junwen Deng and Lisa Morgan who produced a web site based on the Heinemann Eureka Success in Science course material. Second prize of £150 went to Helen Moreno, Sara Porter and Bethan Thomas for their website based on the Heinemann Themes in RE: Learning from Religions, a book targeting key stage 3.
