Publishing Industry?

Publishing is the activity of making information, literature, music, software and other content available to the public for sale or for free. Traditionally, the term refers to the distribution of printed works, such as books, newspapers, and magazines. With the advent of digital information systems, the scope has expanded to include electronic publishing such as ebooks, academic journals, micropublishing, websites, blogs, video game publishing, and the like.

Publishing may produce private, club, commons or public goods and may be conducted as a commercial, public, social or community activity. The commercial publishing industry ranges from large multinational conglomerates such as Bertelsmann, RELX, Pearson and Thomson Reuters to thousands of small independents. It has various divisions such as: trade/retail publishing of fiction and non-fiction, educational publishing (k-12) and academic and scientific publishing. 

Publishing is also undertaken by governments, civil society and private companies for administrative or compliance requirements, business, research, advocacy or public interest objectives. This can include annual reports, research reports, market research, policy briefings and technical reports. Self-publishing has become very common.

FAQ

The Publishing Industry is a fragmented, mature, cyclical sector that is comprised of two subcategories, traditional print media and printing. Traditional print media, more commonly known as publishing, primarily focuses on products for the consumer.
A branch of culture and production that involves the preparation, production, and distribution of books, magazines, newspapers, and graphic material.

Publishing is the process of getting an author’s manuscript into the hands of a reader, by materialising it – giving it form, as a book. … The author’s manuscript is either solicited (the publisher asks them to write it) or unsolicited (the author writes it, then shops for a publisher).

Even though there has not been a huge annual growth in the wealth of the industry, it has remained a high-yielding industry that provides many jobs for and keeps us entertained and educated. It’s also an industry worth supporting, so keep reading and sharing the books you love with your audience.
