Building A Career in Academic Publishing

Podcast Episode: 62

A Seminar at the SYP Conference - November 2013

Sarah Phibbs -Wiley, Prof. Iain Stevenson - University College London, Martin Woodhead - Woodhead Publishing

‘Being published’ is traditionally a seal of the quality and authenticity of research, and has been since the 17th century. If you thought academic publishing was stuffy, think again: things are changing rapidly; and people are now sharing knowledge and consuming content on the Internet for free. How does an academic publisher respond and add value beyond the written word, what is the author’s point-of-view in these transactions, and how does it contribute to the furthering of knowledge as a partner to academia as well as a player within it? As publishers cope with this change, we too must manage the change hap-pening around us as new job roles are created, and new technology is adopted. Is content still king? Come and find out!

Moderated by Angus Phillips, Oxford Brookes University.

Change is inevitable. And for Osprey, change was embraced to ensure future success. Listen to Osprey’s CEO, Rebecca Smart, weave an engaging and honest story of how the company’s growth was as much a process of discovery as it was a strategic decision that would ensure its survival, and demonstrate that managing yourself for and through change can help lead others through the same process. Samantha Missingham will then share her ideas on how the ‘cream doesn’t always rise to the top’; how people (young pub-lishers specifically) need to get their hustle on - using social media. Samantha will then present some tips for creating and getting your dream job, building credibility, and getting exposure.
