“Open Book, in an authoritative and conversational way, introduces and defines many of the key services and products of academic publishers such as journals, reference, editorial, sales and marketing, licensing and copyright, and market research. The book also covers contemporary perspectives on Open Access, the university press, ebooks, and society publishing. Chapters from a notable librarian and publishing company CEO are also important contributions to this revealing book. Every academic librarian and new academic publisher employee should read this book to gain an important yet insider look with the intention of enhancing the publisher and library partnership.”
