The Certificate in Journals Publishing is aimed at graduates currently working in entry-level positions in journals publishing and who have, ideally, between 6-12 months experience within that environment. It offers delegates the opportunity to gain a good overall knowledge of the journals industry, and to gain credits towards a Masters degree at Oxford Brookes University.
The Certificate – provided by the Oxford International Centre for Publishing Studies (OICPS) at Oxford Brookes University in cooperation with the Association of Learned and Professional Society Publishers (ALPSP) – is a two-module postgraduate programme open to holders of a good honours degree. The Certificate consists of taught lectures and group work, which take place one afternoon per week (on Thursdays) for 11 weeks, starting on February 11th, 2010 followed by a period of independent study to be completed in the delegate’s own time.
The course is also open to graduates from other relevant ‘knowledge industry’ sectors, such as academic libraries and learned societies.
