LEARN-SMA 2: Communication and research. The professions and processes of academic publishingonline course
The two-week course is digitally hosted by the Museums of the University of Pisa (SMA) and tailored to the needs of graduates of any discipline interested in a career in academic/educational publishing.
What are the professions involved in academic publishing? What are the processes behind designing a scientific volume (in terms of contents, page design, budget and royalties, distribution)? How is a scientific volume produced (writing, copy-editing, translation/language editing, design, images and charts, bibliographies, indexes, the creation of digital contents)? How is a scientific book marketed and distributed?
The course revolves around these and related questions, by relying on the experience of experienced instructors from a variety of fields: managing editors of both commercial publishing companies and university presses, the editors of scholarly journals, business consultants, copy-editors, translators and language editors, designers, researchers, and the creators of digital contents.
The school will be entirely held online, via Microsoft Teams.
