So we watched the printing process. The most time-consuming part lies before the actual printing and that is typesetting. When designing text on a computer, we have a nearly unlimited number of fonts, styles and type sizes at hand and they all change on a simple click, making it easy to test different styles and adjust the text over and over.

The Pathfoot printing press came equipped with three typefaces — Caslon, Bembo and Plantin — all of which are available at a variety of sizes — but that is it. The process of typesetting takes its time. It starts with assembling the letters out of the typecase, where they are sorted by frequency of use. It takes a lot of practice to get to set type fast!

Imagine sitting at a keyboard for the first time and having to find all the letters. The type is then adjusted in a chase to build up the forme there is a lot of terminology involved here. Once all that is done even the smallest change can mean, that the whole thing has to be taken apart and reassembled. Thus, it is crucial to know exactly what the text is supposed to look like before starting the process.

The press itself has to be adjusted, the printing surface has to be evened out and the paper has to be adjusted in exactly the right position. Hand press printing is a craftsmanship that requires a high level of accuracy. And the work is not over when the text is printed. This is the process of distributing the letters back into the typecase — and each letter in the right compartment. It is a lot of work but it also is a fascinating craft at the end of which a beautifully printed product stands.

This initiative involves first year undergraduate students being given a copy of a Man Booker winning or shortlisted book when they arrive at university, which several universities including Stirling participate in. It has the purpose of encouraging all students to read high quality literature, not only those studying humanities subjects, and gives them the opportunity to talk about the book with their friends, and then hear the author speak at an event later in the semester. The Man Booker Prize is extremely prestigious and the literary nature of the shortlisted books can make it off-putting to the ordinary reader, so this initiative aims to break down these myths and bring these books to a wider readership.

The rest of the session involved Graeme answering questions from Liam Murray Bell, a lecturer in Creative Writing at Stirling, and then taking questions from the audience. He discussed his writing process, saying he chose to present the novel in the format of found documents to give the reader a selection of points-of-view, which encourages them to come to their own conclusions about the story. While the novel can be described as an exploration of morality and truth, Graeme explained that he does not try to intellectualise his writing as he writes it, and tries not to consider how the book may be analysed by readers after it is published.

The research process was clearly a significant element in the writing of this novel, and was, Graeme explained, at least partly influenced by his years as a TV researcher. The novel is set in , so Graeme went to great lengths to achieve historical accuracy wherever possible, but did take creative license with some small elements.

He said that authenticity to the reader was his goal, and to achieve that he tried not to make his research burden the narrative of the novel, but seem effortless. Graeme said he does not find comparisons to other books to be particularly helpful, especially when in the process of writing a book, and gives the advice that originality should always be the goal for writers. There was some surprise, and even derision, that a book of a popular genre such as crime fiction would be shortlisted for the Man Booker prize, but Graeme believes that crime fiction is becoming more accepted in the literary scene.

This was a fascinating event for book lovers, offering an insight into the writing process and literary prize culture, but was also inspiring for publishing students, as an affirmation of the quality and strength both of Scottish publishing and Scottish writing talent. It proves that Scotland has a thriving literary scene that ought to be nurtured to ensure its success far into the future, and strengthened our convictions as future publishers to help this happen.

Rachel did consistently well across the programme, and also contributed to the wider life of the university, including interning at the newly founded Pathfoot Press. With a lot of enthusiasm, Peggy talked about her adventure in this sector, beginning with her English Literature studies at St Andrews. As a result of working there and seeing the potential of the area for housing a book festival West Port had six bookshops and a nice pub , she set up the West Port Book Festival with some friends.

It was not easy to re-brand the area and start a project like this without funding, so they pre-crowdfunded the project the clients of Armchair Books contributed to the cause and learned how to develop a festival like this. West Port Book Festival was celebrated for five years from to , which is not difficult to believe, regarding that some of the authors of the first year were Ian Rankin, Ali Smith and Alison Louise Kennedy. In she got a job in Literary Dundee, where she is currently working as a manager, as said earlier.

Since then, the organisation has organised lots of different and uncommon events, as talks with authors, involving music, biscuits, networking and a brilliant atmosphere. She is very excited to start a new adventure in this dreamy place. The truth is her visit and her enthusiasm and its terrific end made us feel really happy. Each speaker talked about their roles and responsibilities they are facing every day at work.

It is very important to build a relationship with all colleagues if you want the work to go as smoothly as it can. An editor is involved in content creation from the moment a manuscript has been delivered to proofreading, and has to be able to produce quality material with limited sources. Laura Jones is a freelancer and co-founder of Ink, an independent publisher of books and literary magazines. Her talk was about her first success, magnus opus and the first mistake, she was talking about importance of style and design, and how easy is to make ebooks ugly. Laura was followed by Jamie Norman, Campaigns assistant at Canongate and writer, who showed us the importance of marketing and publicity for publishers.

His work is to promote books in magazines, newspapers and blogs, be sure to market them soon after they are published and to keep in contact with partners and try to meet them face to face. Canongate also keep talking about their books on social media and create big physical ads, which are expensive but make a huge difference. To make them effective it is important to engage people with design and think who is going to look at the advert. Vikki Reilly energetically took us to the world of Sales.

She happily works for Birlinn Ltd, daily talking to book buyers and booksellers, who are passionate about books as much as she is. She organises author events in bookshops, where she gets a feedback about a book from readers. Working in sales she gets to know everything, what formats work for specific books, design, she has to stay in contact with editors to really know the book etc. If deadlines change, she has to let bookstores know. When she gets a book report, numbers make sense to her, because she knows the story behind them.

So, her answer to a published book is not I cannot sell it but how can I sell it, whilst being imaginative and honest with booksellers. Her role is to know the taste of as many commissioning editors around the world as possible. She sells translation rights at book fairs and via email by selling catalogues. Since book fairs are very expensive it is good to get funding or fellowships. She was also talking about how meetings at book fairs look like, what is the role of subagents and literary scouts and why are they important.

Mairi Oliver beautifully concluded the evening with sharing her passion for the Lighthouse, the Radical Bookshop in Edinburgh. There they organise events, festivals and book fairs. All the speakers interestingly described their daily publishing world and perhaps encouraged students to try themselves in a role they had not thought about before. Floris likes to keep most of their work in-house, so they use very few freelancers and the people that work there usually work on all of their titles.

The exception is that they have one person working exclusively on the adult books because he has specialist knowledge of the subject. Chani explained to us that all the departments in Floris work very closely to make sure that all the elements of a book related to one another. For instance, the content needs to be reflected in the blurb, in the cover design and in the marketing materials. Apparently this can lead to some very strange tasks being shared across departments! Chani told us that the week before she came to visit, she and one of the production controllers had been scribbling on a copy of their new sticker book to see if the paper used in it was also suitable for a colouring book they would like to release next year!

She writes and proofreads marketing materials such as ebulletins to be sent out by email telling people about their upcoming or newly-released titles. Sarah warned us not to write this kind of marketing off — it is still one of the most effective forms of marketing that Floris uses! However, because Snapchat does not have live data analysis, they were not sure if it was a successful experiment or not!

When starting a new project, Chani says she finds it is helpful to imagine who her target consumer is for the book she is trying to market. She thinks about who they are, why they might be buying the book, how they might like to be contacted and where they might hear about the book. This helps her it market it towards this person in the most effective way. As part of the MLitt Publishing Studies course, we had a class in which we set up Twitter accounts in order to network and establish contacts.

We were to tweet using the hashtag stirpub and within minutes Twitter was inundated with our very vocal and vicious fight for the book. As fellow publishing students Laura and Katie put it:. Group B was the first group to have this class and a normally chatty class was rendered silent during this Twitter battle with all that could be heard being the furious tapping at keyboards and the occasional chuckle. Nothing will get a class of book-lovers more motivated than the incentive of a free book. There were some fantastic and hilarious tweets and there were also ones that very much advocated for violence as this tweet shows a deserving winner I shall say from a completely unbiased viewpoint….

This meant that we could all find each other easily and interact, yet it also meant we could attack each other in our bid for a free book! Additionally, a list of Twitter handles of influential and interesting people in publishing was made available to us as a starting point in who to follow in order to gain a wider understanding of the relationship between publishers, authors and social media.

Then, many puns, insightful comments, insults and cat pictures later a winner was chosen:. So well done to Marija for her excellent tweet and the cat picture from her other tweet which surely helped towards her win! As amusing, and brutal, as the Twitter session was it did help us all to actively use our Twitters and interact not just with one another but with our lecturers and other people in publishing.

An entire group of people were made social media savvy in just a few hours. Admittedly, magazine publishing is not an area that I myself had considered greatly prior to this presentation. The magazine industry in Scotland is far bigger than I had anticipated, with PPA representing over magazines. PPA does an immense amount of work within the industry, such as promoting members, organizing events such as the PPA Awards , lobbying the government on issues which affect the magazine industry, giving advice to people both working in the industry and those looking to break into it, as well as supporting new magazines.

One area which PPA works in which particularly caught my interest was environmental regulations. As part of their services PPA do green audits for companies and show them how they can be more environmentally friendly and efficient in their business. Bearing this in mind, one would be forgiven for thinking that PPA had large offices, filled with workers who were all run off their feet. From looking through these, we were able to see how differently each magazine is designed, in terms of both layout and materials. These were quite different to the classic idea I had of magazines, with glossy covers and celebrities on the cover page.

Many of these magazines had varying types of paper, beautiful photography, humorous satirical articles and interesting typefaces. Each of the magazines Laura showed us fell into one of the three areas of periodical publishing, these being consumer, business to business B2B and contract. However, we were primarily looking at consumer publications.

We were shown a list of the top twenty selling magazine publications in Scotland, and I will admit I was surprised by the top-dogs in the industry. Laura explained to us that often magazines which do not charge their readers, such as ASDA or Tesco, have the biggest readership, as people can idly pick up the publication without considering whether or not they wish to purchase it. These magazines would be subsidized by companies advertising in the magazines or sometimes by content marketing, which is when journalists are paid by external bodies, such as the government, to write an article.

I found it interesting to learn that print magazines are making a come-back in a big way against the tide of online magazine publishing. The presentation ended with a lively discussion, where Laura gave us a chance to come up with our own idea for a magazine as a class, and consider how we might go about publishing it. We considered our target audience, the contents, where it would be sold, how it might be designed, what the price might be, and how it would be distributed. In doing this, we covered some of the major components of magazine publishing, giving us an enthusiasm for the work.

On behalf of the class, I would like to thank her for sharing her enthusiasm, knowledge and creativity with us all. I must admit that when we were first told that interacting on Twitter was essential to the development of our professional life in the publishing industry, there was a part of me that considered pursuing an immediate career change. I was never the one to thrive on social media, even my Facebook account felt like too much at times.

A couple of days later I found myself joining a spontaneous bookshop crawl organized by complete strangers…and all because of Twitter. Then, using the traditional Google search I tried to look for related events in Edinburgh. Imagine my disappointment when I found none. Reluctantly, I turned towards Twitter. Imagine my surprise when in seconds I had a potential outing organized. All it took was one search and two hashtags. As it turned out, fellow publishers-to-be from Edinburgh Napier University were going to celebrate Bookshop Day in the best possible way, that is with a Bookshop Crawl.

A brilliant concept that transforms the infamous British tradition of pub crawls into a nerdy day of rummaging through piles of books. Lea , my friend from the Stirling course, and I both loved the idea — it was an opportunity not only to indulge our predilection for buying new books, but also a great way to explore Edinburgh for the first time. She was clearly responsible for giving the whole bookshop a very friendly air — running to and fro, attending to individual customers with lots of enthusiasm and a great sense of humour.

A quick browse through the shelves revealed that the bookshop had a very good selection of intriguing and thought-provoking fiction and non-fiction. The first thing you notice inside is an imposing head of a water buffalo hanging on the wall, a very characteristic hallmark. The abundance of books offered by Armchair was astonishing. Volumes were stacked to the ceiling and shelves squeezed into every possible nook.

Also, the place was surprisingly busy, swarming with book lovers, who could not resist spending their Saturday among piles of antiquarian jewels. From Armchair Books we bookshop crawled to Transreal, a haven for science-fiction and fantasy enthusiasts. As an aspiring academic publisher I was astonished by the sheer size of the scholarly section. An enormous part of the shop was reserved for serious studies ranging from philosophy to marine biology. All in all, the day was a great success. At the end of the day, sitting on the steps of the Scott Monument — apparently the largest monument to a writer in the world — I thought to myself: Edinburgh really is a city of literature.

In all honesty, this was my first internship. Everyone was so nice and friendly and encouraging. So aside from the societal niceties, the internship was a learning experience. I asked questions about the programs and how they were used. I asked about day to day stressors, personal motivation, and whether the work was rewarding. I had the mind-altering revelation that when so many people are working on a book, a lot of people have to keep the plot a secret, and are usually legally obligated to do so. Learning that I am actually employable is a huge relief. So what exactly is it that Palimpsest does?

I figure the best way to explain that is to tell you about my week. Monday was typesetting. Not the old fashioned kind that I had training in from undergrad, but typesetting digitally via InDesign. The page layout is specified by the publisher margin measurements, line count, where the page number should be. The text is then inserted into the document and it is then that the text is formatted paragraph styles, flush-left openers. That was the first big lesson. You may look like an overachiever, you may look too eager, but you will be the most prepared.

Thankfully, I already knew the basics. After a one-on-one lesson, I was given a desk and a job spec and sent off to try and apply what I had just learned. Again, I must repeat this would have been easier had I brought a notebook. Palimpsest has paragraph styles for every inevitability and they are a time-saver. That was quite a bit of fun. The standard editor marks are used, but text insertion is just a lot of eye-squinting and hoping for the best. That was my first day done. Tuesday was digital publishing, and yes, I brought a notebook. There is certainly a more technical aspect to the digital publishing process, but my describing it would be lacking.

My brain may have gone into overload as soon as I realized that coding was involved. What I can explain is the process of checking the document before and after uploading it to ePub conversion website. While the original typeset document was made in a more recent version of InDesign, the file gets converted into an IDML so that it can be read by earlier versions. The file is then opened in an older version of InDesign. The paragraph styles are checked.

The copyright page is double-checked for being the e-book version, not the physical edition. After all this, the file is then uploaded and converted to ePub. Then the ePub is checked for errors and if there are any the process is done again. Digital publishing is an involved process and while it was being explained, it sounded doable. I am one of the most technologically inept people ever. This is a process that I could eventually learn, but it was certainly the most trying part of the week, well outside my comfort zone. In the afternoon, I went to work with customer service and it was here that I realized that my past work experience is applicable to publishing.

Emailing vendors, inputting job information, staying on top of incoming emails — been there, done that. The nicest part of this form of customer service is that there is no person-to-person aspect of it. No fake smiles, or earnest customer service personas, just emails and data entry. Wednesday was proofreading and I was given a checklist. I love checklists. It was an ebook checklist. Basically, the ebook creation of Tuesday was then corrected on Wednesday. Is the copyright page accurate? Is the body text justified? Does the linking in the book work?

When you click on a footnote does the ebook take you there? When you get to the footnote can you go back to your place in the text? Do all the formats work on the differing devices: Kindle, ePub, Apple? Like I said, I love checklists. In the afternoon, there was more proofreading. It was nice, but the level of attention to detail is certainly a learned skill.

Also, trying to not read the books I was proofreading was really difficult. The easiest way to not read the book was to realize that if I had a choice, I would never read some of these books. Once the plot was dismissed, it became easier to pay attention to hyphenation, spacing, and stacking. I also learned that proofreaders have to depend on the aesthetic decisions of editors.

To all, widows are never welcome, but orphans are fickle things please read this as the typographical terminology, not humanitarian terminology. Double stacks are forgivable if only one word, triple stacks are unacceptable. So on and so forth. It is a lot of detail and when I closed my eyes that night, I dreamed of stacks I had missed. Thursday started with operational management. If you think about what keeps a company going, operational management is that.

Keeping the office supplied, mailing and receiving packages, scanning in books, dealing with outsourcing, and general office management. It was a lot of singular responsibilities that culminated into a very busy job. I was taught the various aspects of the job and then got to scan in a book which would later be outsourced for keying. Then I went back to proofreading where I went through a few more manuscripts. I found most of the mistakes, but I still need a lot more practice. Friday, I was supposed to start in proofreading and then go back to typesetting later in the day to enter more editor corrections.

However, Friday was chaotic and very stressful in the office. But that was another kind of learning experience. How a company handles pressure and treats its employees during stressful times is important. If anything, I thought that was how stressful moments were typically handled in a work atmosphere. Palimpsest seemed to become stronger. They were kinder, more considerate towards one another. They took a step back, re-assessed, re-prioritized, and pulled through. It was impressive to say the least. After a week of working at Palimpsest, I realized that I could be very happy working in book production.

Trying new things can be scary, but asking questions can help mitigate those fears. Honestly, the hardest part was waking up early to make the bus on time. The work was stimulating and feeling like a part of a bigger picture was the ultimate reward. The schedule will be:. Our IAB will discuss current issues in publishing. Only half a year has passed since Bob Dylan was announced winner of the Nobel Prize in literature and he has already managed to go pick it up.

This past weekend he had a concert at Waterfront in Stockholm so on Saturday evening, before the concert, he had a private meeting with twelve of the Swedish Academy members. Another student already wrote about the prize when Dylan was announced winner; and there was a lot of opinions going around in general. There is nothing we love as we love some controversy. Hence, as a publishing student I still feel the need to think about the questions his win raises.

First of all: what is literature? Dylan does not write what we commonly associate with literature — he writes songs. The Swedish Academy acknowledges as much, and this is what they rewarded. On the one hand, one could argue that they take the sense of tradition to an extreme, considering that my education in literature taught me that the troubadour tradition belongs within literature. It is basically poems about love with music composed to it, and some people do like to argue that the same goes for contemporary lyrics. Without going into detail, this is an argument which could be made and it may be convincing.

But why is it so upsetting? Do we even belong together? Can the Nobel Prize continue to represent our collective idea of literary taste? Since Dylan never used to be seriously considered to be making literature, the debate was easy to predict. Rather, we got a wonderful show in the media and all over Twitter which implanted the Nobel Prize in the minds of millions of people.

This will not be forgotten, it will be written about and remembered as a highlight in the history of the prize. We will see it on encyclopedia pages forever after and ride off into the sunset. It has been a wonderfully entertaining marketing trick allowing us all to be more emotional this year than usual at least in Sweden , and publishers got to sell more books. But most important of all: the Swedish Academy finally got to meet Bob Dylan. Outside the publishing house, foreign markets also continue to evolve. What worked five years ago does not work now; for instance serial and book club rights are much less lucrative than they used to be.

Joyce says that this time of change and uncertainty can be both exciting and frightening. According to Joyce, it is essential to have an idea of who, down to the editor, a book is likely to appeal to before approaching to make a deal. Not every book is suitable for licensing abroad, and Canongate needs to be selective. Successfully selling rights to a book is only the first step in a process which then involves many changes before a physical copy is produced. In the majority of cases the text needs to be translated, and the cover also redesigned to appeal to its local readers.

Rights selling can fit in at any stage of the publishing process, from acquisition to post-publication. And though this sentiment was devastating, frustrating, and anxiety inducing to hear as an in-debt publishing student, I do see the merit of it. Getting your hands dirty from new ink will definitely provide us with insight that the course, for obvious reasons might be lacking in. And working in a book shop will give us that new and different perspective to the things we learn in classes.

So, I decided to jump right in. Since that decision was made, I have started to volunteer at the Oxfam bookshop in Stirling. And though I have not worked there that many hours yet, I have tried a bunch of tasks related to book sales.

On my first day, I was helping with book pricing, till service and rearranging book shelves. Firstly, pricing books, and seeing how a books value is changed as it passes to another person, was really interesting. It dawned on me, to a greater extend than it had before, that books keep on selling, when they leave the high street shops. But seeing their price reduced, to sometimes extremes in my opinion, made me happy. Lower prices on all of these amazing books will mean that people might be more prone to buy more books.

Secondly, working at the till enabled me to see what customers actually bought, and what they were looking for in the shop. For though Oxfam is second-hand, the sales in that shop still reflect the trends of the overall market. The figures and features genres in the bookseller is also what is reflected with Oxfam sales. In the future, I am hoping to do some work on the shops social media pages and to enhance both their visibility and my skills on that score. Call me biased but I believe every child should be read to from an early age.

It is obvious that the Scottish Book Trust are working hard to achieve this but Philippa was quick to point out one frightening fact: children who are not read to from an early age have a language deficit of 50, words compared to a child who is. I have my mother to blame or love for my book addiction. She pretty much had a bookshelf of baby books for me before I was born and for most of my life books have been an important part of our household.

It certainly helped me. It faces challenges, as do most arts based charities, but they do receive donations, sponsorship and funding from not only the Scottish Government but also individuals, companies, trusts and foundations. The Scottish Book Trust want to make sure that children are developing by reading, helping aspiring authors gain help and advice they need to achieve their dream, help people not just children who struggle with reading or loneliness by interacting with them and aiding them but not by shoving a handful of books at people or a leaflet offering advice — through several events, programmes and campaigns.

For me, reading is important especially at a young age and hopefully these events and campaigns continue to help families across Scotland develop. This is a big festival for the whole publishing industry, I learned a lot from it, and I was surprised by the achievement of Chinese Publishing Market in last year discussed at the Book Fair. Further, 1. The Combined revenue from e-books, online periodicals, and digital newspapers was 6. In addition, The most popular platform in China is DangDang website. In this website, they have more than , e-book titles available, and sold 66 million books in , 20 percent of total book sales.

The most popular types of book are biographies, best sellers, award winners and famous authors and new technical developments. American, British and Japanese books all sell well in the Chinese market. I think all the data shows that Chinese Publishing Market is entering a blooming time, an increasing number people start to read, no matter whether the books are Chinese or foreign language books, and that means Chinese publishing industry will grow.

From the speech, there are a lot of people around the world who notice the Chinese Publishing Market. They came to talk about the idea behind the book, discuss issues of class and diversity within the publishing industry and offered some advice on working in publishing. It is a collection of essays on the experiences and the issues women face in a world in which right-wing populism, racism and misogyny seem to be on the verge of becoming socially acceptable once again.

The idea was to represent current issues especially in the light of Donald Trump being elected as President of the United States , which led to a heavily shortened publishing schedule. The overwhelming demand for a book that gave voice to the experience of contemporary women became clear when the project was fully funded on Kickstarter within three days and widely exceeded the initial goal. When it comes to the relationship between publisher and author, trust is the most important factor.

According to Laura Waddell, it is very reassuring to work for a publisher who believes in the project and is committed to their authors. Basically, everybody suffers from imposter syndrome from time to time, you just have to push through it and keep learning. On the subject of tackling issues of class and diversity, the panel discussed the problems of gatekeeping and how it can narrow the level of representation within publishing.

Their policy is to put the author first and to give the whole publishing process a sense of transparency, which benefits both publishers and authors alike.

While gatekeeping is still a big issue in the publishing industry, Ink shows that it is possible to have a relationship of equality between publishers and authors. After answering questions from the audience, the discussion ended with Laura, Heather, Claire and Laura offering some advice for starting out in publishing:. The internship is undertaken remotely, and as one of six editorial board members, it entails reading over submissions, offering feedback on each, and choosing a select few to be included in the magazine.

It is my responsibility as an editor to express my feedback in a way that will not deter or upset the author or artist, but rather that will encourage them to persevere and keep creating. While Keith Grey spoke of creativity outside educational boundaries, Kaite Welsh focused on how we might craft our feedback effectively when critiquing submissions. These talks were thought-provoking and definitely essential for us as new editorial members. While this is a remote internship, we do get paid for each issue we work on yay!

Each submission has made me realise that creativity is boundless, with each piece offering refreshing and unique perspectives. Each submission I have read has exposed me to a variety of genres and subject-matter, and by delivering useful feedback and advice, I am helping guide young writers who are just beginning to realise their potential. It has allowed me to exercise my editorial skills — such as proof-reading, editing and critiquing — and this will aid me in my chosen career.

It has also taught me not to have preconceived ideas regarding authorship and writing, and that, no matter how young an author or creator may be, they can offer a variety of different perspectives, experiences and styles of writing.

There Are No Spies

I often find myself surprised by the submissions I read, which present ideas and life-experiences in comical, shocking and often eloquent ways, and being exposed to a variety of creative writing has definitely been the highlight of the internship. I just finished my travel to London Book Fare LBF two weeks ago and it was totally a new experience for me to get involved in the publishing industry in this way. Anyway, that was a busy and unforgettable time for me.

It lasted for an hour and consists of 3 speakers. I will focus on the first two:. He mainly summarized the copyright situation in , the development of copyright in recent years and British copyright issues etc. In my opinion, it is because copyright has such a social purpose so that it has the value of being explored.

Publishers should also help the government to solve these problems which may be encountered in the process because we all understand that copyright can be complicated to understand and manage. Indeed, when copyright protects the rights of authors, it also makes sharing less flexible.

Compared with the consumer, copyright means more for the author and this problem is particularly reflected in the field of education. The limitations of copyright narrow the scope of educational reference and have a negative impact on better education. Therefore, we should also look for ways to ensure the definition of copyright can be more flexible. Chief Executive of Publishers Licensing Society, she was a partner at city law firm, specializing in copyright. She gave the practical example of what exactly is going on at moment around copyright issues. Her speech was based on the Canadian education.

However, in the early stages of development, we still need to think about the risks of change and whether we have enough power to compensate for the loss caused by fluctuations when making decisions otherwise it will bring disaster to the industries involved, just like Canada.

Educational publishers were forced to lay-off staff and Access Copyright an institute in Canada established a large fund to supporting this industry as a return. The three speakers set out a very professional explanation from the field of their work and left us with more thought. This internship involved mostly working from home, which has benefits working in pyjamas! No travel! Plus, as it is my very first internship, it would have been nice to have an office presence.

I thought James was mad, in a brilliant way, and found him intense and the job satisfying. A year later, James got in touch again and asked me to archive his magazine collection. The experience was to become more culturally enriching and satisfying than I had ever imagined. Full article here.
