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.

Managing Change In Publishing

Podcast Episode: 59

A Seminar at the SYP Conference - November 2013

Rebecca Smart, Osprey and Samantha Missingham, HarperCollins

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.

An expert panel from publishing and the games industry examines a range of topics including our continuing need for exciting stories on which games can be developed, and how publishers are looking to develop a digital strategy across media platforms.

The Publishing Process at Wiley

Podcast Episode: 56

Sarah Hall is Commissioning Editor at John Wiley and Sons

Not every idea for a book will be developed into a manuscript. Sarah explained that all new proposals must be reviewed internally and externally and a strong business case put forward before a contract is signed and the content written.  This means that she has to keep a regular stream of new ideas flowing into the process.

Publishers, Product Managers and Digital Collections

How should the role of a Digital Publisher/Product Manager be defined and what does this involve?

Kay Peddle - The book is dead, long live the book

Podcast Episode: 50

Publishing, writing and reading in the digital era.

(Editor at The Bodley Head, a non-fiction imprint at The Random House Group)

Self-publishing, eBooks, Amazon, piracy - the threats to trade publishing are numerous but the opportunities are too. Publishers need to be creative and agile in order to adapt to the rapidly changing retail and consumer environments we currently face. Thinking about content creatively and taking risks on new formats and retail channels is vital. Kay will talk briefly about what Random House is doing in this area and will also touch on how other trade publishers are evolving from the traditional book publishing model into the multi-platform 'content' model.
