Journal Publishing is an essential, comprehensive desk-reference for everyone working in this area. It covers all aspects of journal production, from print to electronic publication. An appendix covers tendering for journals, provides addresses of relevant associations, and provides a glossary of terms and acronyms and a bibliography.
Journal publishing involves such a variety of disciplines and types and levels of expertise, that a comprehensive professional guide is essential.

Based on, and extending, the highly successful Journal Publishing: Principles and Practice (1987), this book covers all aspects of journal production, from editing, design, marketing and list management to electronic publication. An appendix covers tendering for journals; includes addresses of publishers' and editors' associations; provides a glossary of terms and acronyms, and a bibliography - making the book an indispensable desk-reference for all academic journal editors, contributors and publishers.
