Spotlight: Publishing Research Quarterly

Alex Grover, a recent grad, just had a book review published in Publishers Quarterly.

The journal analyzes content development, production, distribution, and marketing of books, magazines, journals, and online information services in relation to the social, political, economic, and technological conditions that shape the publishing process. Its broad coverage shows how different sectors of the industry operate, from editorial decision-making to order processing.

Topics include product development, marketing, finance, and print and online distribution as well as the relationship between publishing activities and the publishing industry’s constituencies among industry, government, and consumers. The journal presents scholarly articles, research reports, review papers, essays, surveys, memoirs, statistics, letters, notes and book reviews.
