You will investigate how books and other publishing products and services are commissioned and completed, including the modern production processes and business strategies used to succeed in the competitive media environment.
You’ll consider the legal environment in which publishing operates, focusing on the management, sale and licensing of rights in publishing. You’ll also look at wider issues connected to digital publishing, including e-book and audiobook markets.
