    Sunday until lunchtime on the Wednesday The course will be directed by Anthony Watkinson Senior Lecturer University College London and Director of Training and Education STM with assistance by Mark Robertson Wiley Blackwell and Maurice Kwong Springer There will be a certificate of attendance for all those completing the course from STM and from UCL The cost for each student will be 1850 and this will include accommodation for three nights All meals and all tutorial costs are included too If an organization is able to send three or more students the cost will be reduced to 1650 per student The course is adapted from the course that has been held in Europe for seventeen years There have been several Asian students on this course every year and the course in Hong Kong is a response to a demand for a local course that has frequently been expressed As with the European course the aim is to provide a serious grounding in all aspects of learned journal publishing The emphasis will be on understanding in depth the various publishing functions It is intended that each function should be understood within the overall context of joined up publishing The presenters have been asked to describe journal publishing as it is but also the changes that are taking place and the challenges facing our industry The case study which is central to the course is based upon a real proposal from a group of learned societies in an Asian country It will involve a written proposal and also each participant will be required to be part of a group presentation It is however understood by both the presenters and the course tutors that the majority of those taking part in the course will not have English as a first language Who Should Attend To successfully participate in this course the participants should have some publishing experience within an STM member company or another scholarly or professional publishing organisation It is only appropriate for those involved in international English language publishing It must be emphasised that the course is as much designed for those from production or service functions as for editorial and marketing sales people The size of the venue means that there will only be room for twenty students There are therefore good reasons for booking places as soon as possible If there are any queries about the nature of the course please ask Anthony Watkinson Final Programme Sunday 24th February 12 00 Registration 12 30 Lunch Introduction Anthony Watkinson Role and Future of the STM Journal Michael Mabe CEO STM Explanation of case Study and delivery of the case study to students Mark Robertson Break initial work on the case study in three groups Editorial Strategic Journal Development Amanda Davis Wiley Blackwell More work on case study in three groups Pre dinner drinks with speech about STM Evening meal Further work on case study in groups Monday 25 February Breakfast Questions Answers on Case Study Anthony Watkinson Finance Nee Phua
