STM PUBLISHING INDUSTRY - EVENTS

Interactive Publications and the Record of Science - 08 Feb 2010
The Web is by nature an interactive environment, yet online journals are mostly static, consistent with their traditional role as a never-changing scholarly record. However, this traditional role is increasingly challenged as browser technologies leap forward, dynamic visualization and presentation tools proliferate, and primary data are linked to research articles. In an important and timely event arranged by ICSTI (the International Council for Scientific and Technical Information), publishers, publishing service providers, librarians, editors and authors will meet in Paris for a full one-day workshop to survey the most exciting and challenging of the new developments and to begin to identify the necessary infrastructure for including interactive content within the record of science.

Web 2.0 principles and practices can allow publishers of all sizes to communicate and engage effectively with customers and communities in ways radically different from traditional marketing relationships, resulting in true two-way communication. This practical course will clear away any perceptions that Web 2.0 is a mix of confusing jargon and technology, and demonstrate how Web 2.0 thinking and tool use can help publishers to become more successful.

Project Management for Publishing - 23 Feb 2010
We live in a world where both the publication process and the overall publishing environment are affected by constant change. Increasingly, project management techniques are being used by publishers in order to handle change effectively. For example, moving a journal (or group of journals) from one typesetter to another, or planning a marketing campaign with complex time-critical interdependencies are examples that will be familiar to those working in publishing. In both of these cases and many others, project management techniques can be employed to ensure a successful outcome. The course will demonstrate, through the use of case studies, how to apply effective project management techniques within publishing.
