This course provides a detailed examination of the publishing process for scholarly and reference books. Discussion focuses on the stages of publishing, including acquisition (proposal evaluation and developmental editing), editing (substantive and copy editing), production, and marketing of scholarly books. The central concerns of the editorial and marketing departments are explored at each stage, with attention to the ways in which the scholarly publishing industry differs from the trade and educational publishing industries. Other topics covered include the peer review process; budgeting for and funding of scholarly books; scholarly journals; CD-ROMs and reference books; and electronic publishing. Homework and assignments involve specific editorial skills related to scholarly and reference publishing (treatment of illustrations, tables and figures, notes, bibliographies, indexes).

Note: Students with experience in editing may be admitted by permission of the coordinators.

**This course will run during the Winter break.
