INSTG050 Publishing Process
This module aims to provide students with a detailed understanding of the functional, human resource and operational structures of publishing companies and the ancillary organizations that support the industry.

By the end of this module students will have gained detailed knowledge of at least one major sector (e.g. trade, STM, educational publishing); practised and honed their research skills; enhanced their communication skills and be able to present confidently before peers and senior industry figures.
