Books, scholarly journals, business information, and professional information play a pivotal role in the political, social, economic, scientific, and intellectual life of nations. While publications abound on Wall Street and financial service companies, the relationship between Wall Street’s financial service companies and the publishing and information industries has not been explored until now. The Economics of the Publishing and Information Industries utilizes substantive historical, business, consumer, economic, sociological, technological, and quantitative and qualitative methodologies to understand the people, trends, strengths, opportunities, and threats the publishing industry and the financial service sector have faced in recent years. Various developments, both economic and demographic, contributed to the circumstances influencing the financial service sector’s investment in the publishing and information industries. This volume identifies and analyzes those developments, clearly laying out the forces that drove the marriage between the spheres of publishing and finance. This book offers insight and analysis that will appeal to those across a wide variety of fields and occupations, including those in financial service firms, instructors and students in business, communications, finance, or economics programs, business and financial reporters, regulators, private investors, and academic and major public research libraries.

China has a long and complex history of relating to the outside world. With its recent entry into the World Trade Organization, China is now committed to comply with the principles and rules of the international trading system as the largest trading country to join the system. China's commitment offers new commercial opportunities for foreign companies, which in turn will transform the domestic economy. The common need throughout the process will be information, documentation, reporting, and education on all levels and in all parts of the huge country. Therefore, the publishing industry will play a critical part in providing the key information elements required by a country that is on fast forward.The Publishing Industry in China is a timely volume that covers all aspects of China's book, magazine, and online publishing industry. Ten contributing authors have been carefully selected to represent their sector of the publishing industry and to provide a critical analysis of both present conditions as well as trends for new developments in book and magazine publishing. Eleven chapters discuss the different market segments of trade, scientific, technical, professional, education, and children's books.The economics and distribution of both book and magazine publishing are covered in separate chapters. Finally, there are guidelines for international magazine publishers to enter the market and how translation or co-publishing rights for books can be developed during this period of growth and development. A concluding chapter reviews the challenges and developments of education and professional training for the publishing industry. An appendix provides published references and web sites for further background information and resources.The Publishing Industry in China stands alone as the only comprehensive guide and reference source to understanding recent developments and trends as well as providing guidelines for the single largest market in the world. It is essential reading for all publishers who wish to explore growth in the international arena.

Electronic Publishing: State of the Art Report provides an overview of the state of knowledge in electronic publishing. This Report is organized into three parts: Invited Papers, Analysis, and Bibliography. The Invited Papers describe some of the problems of producing effective commercial versions of electronic document transfer systems, drawing on the experience of participants in the DOCDEL project funded by the Commission of the European Communities (CEC). These projects show many interesting and potentially important possibilities for commercial activity, in areas ranging from authoring systems designed to help the electronic origination of scientific and mathematical works, to developments in the field of storing and transmitting graphical information. The Analysis assesses major advances in electronic publishing. The Analysis is constructed by the editor of the Report to provide a balanced and comprehensive view of the latest developments in electronic publishing. The editor's personal analysis of the subject is supplemented by quotations from the Invited Papers, written by leading authorities on the subject. The Bibliography is a specially selected compilation of the most important published material on the subject of electronic publishing. Each key item in the literature is reviewed and annotated to assist in selecting the required information.
