Publishing industry gets more professional

KEEPING in view the fast-changing global scenario in publishing, which is increasingly becoming more competitive, the Federation of Publishers’ & Booksellers’ Associations in India (FPBAI), the apex body in publishing, has introduced a full-fledged professionally structured and comprehensive course in publishing.

The Certificate Course in Publishing that commenced on June 2, 2003, under the auspices of FPBAI School of Publishing Science, making Indian publishing industry more professional and competitive by attracting young talents to the profession.

The Certificate Course spreads over a period of three months. It consists of three main modules — editorial production and marketing. To give the students a thorough understanding and an in-depth knowledge, the course comprises lectures, practical assignments, workshops and interactive sessions.

Ample care is taken to ensure that students get practical exposure along with theoretical instructions.

The course covers communication, finance organisation structure, legal framework, distribution and customer service, rights management and international marketing, apart from the three main modules.

Dr N Subrahmanyam of Tata McGrow-Hill is the chairman of the Academic Council. Sridhar Balan of Oxford University Press acts as the Course Director while Joseph Methal of Macmillan is the Module Coordinator for Marketing. Prabhudda Sircar is the Module Coordinator for Production and Urvashi Batalia of Kali for Women is the Module Coordinator for Editorial.

Mr Sridhar Balan, Course Director, FPBAI School of Publishing Science says: "The basic course revolves around three course modules—editorial, production and marketing. Each module will have lectures around selected topics with a follow-up practical session. There will be a close interweaving of theory and practice to give the students an in-depth understanding of the subject. Each lecture session will be self contained with an in-built evaluation at the end of the session. There will also be an end module test.

"A graduate from any discipline is eligible to apply for this course and the admission is based on an aptitude interview. Successful candidates are provided with placement in the industry," he adds. — TNS
