Publishing III 100 Hours Certificate Course
Publishing III course online. Learn how to manage a publishing business. Develop your ability to plan and manage a publishing business. Publishers are continually needing to consider: What to publish? Some establish a limited repertoire of publication activities, focusing on academic books, novels, westerns, romance novels, text and educational books, informative or self-help books or material on specific topics such as health and wellbeing, ostrich farming etc., fashion or gardening magazines, music scores etc. Other publishers will engage in a wider range of activities, publishing books, journals, monographs and newspapers in their different branches. The nature of the publishing enterprise will determine what kinds of texts they will publish, and how they choose which texts to publish. Whilst it can be taken alone, this course is ideally studied as a follow on from Publishing I and II.
