Learning about publishing: The Publishing Meeting
Anthony Haynes writes: I’ve designed a simulation to use to help people learn about publishing.
I designed it originally to be used on training courses for authors and prospective authors. The thinking is: if authors can understand more about how publishing decisions are made, they’ll be able to improve their publishing proposals.
I’ve tested the simulation for that purpose with researchers (staff and graduate students) from several universities and research institutes.
Following the same logic, I’ve also used it with graduate students in creative writing.
I hope it might also be useful on publishing studies courses, though I have yet to test it in that context.
