Arts Faculty PG Training Program
11:00-12:30 Josie Dixon, ‘Academic Publishing in the 21st Century: Markets and Technology, Survival and Change’ (H203)
In this wide-ranging lecture, based on 15 years’ publishing experience in both university-press and commercial-academic sectors, Josie Dixon reviews the state of the market and the strategies scholarly publishers have developed to ensure the survival of their business. She outlines some of the new challenges brought by digital technology, including some fundamental questions relating to copyright, access, and intellectual property. While these issues are being played out most dramatically in the sciences, it is clear that they are already encroaching on humanities and social science publishing, and likely to have a major impact in the coming years. Ms. Dixon was Publishing Director for the Academic Division at Palgrave Macmillan until 2003, and before that worked for 11 years in commissioning and managerial roles at Cambridge University Press. She now works as a publishing consultant with a special interest in training, and has given workshops and lectures on the publishing industry internationally.
