Workshop: University Presses Sell Rights Too—Learn How
Selling the rights to a publication is a challenge for university presses, as they have changed in many ways, especially in how they put together their catalog. Taking this production to other languages and conquering new territories is, without a doubt, an incentive for authors and publishers to continually improve, and produce more, content.

Filtering and Amplification: What Publishing Does and How It Changes
What it is that publishers do seems like it should be obvious. But it's not. In fact publishing is much more difficult to define than we might think. However in a time of enormous technological change, it's more vital than ever to understand how this ancient industry works. At the core of this new theory of publishing lie two actions: filtering and amplification. By focusing on them we not only get a better understanding of publishing in the past; but we can get a handle on the upheavals of the digital revolution and better understand how it changes not only publishing but the entire ecosystem of reading, writing and communicating in general.
