Markets for Electronic Book Products
Bill Cope, Dean Mason
Common Ground, 2002 - Book industries and trade - 251 pages
Second of a series of four books that examines emerging markets for publishing services in general and books in particular. This volume is focussed on electronic book products and is divided into two parts: (1) Case studies of experiences with new technologies, and (2) Considerations for infrastructure development. Presents analysis of commercial opportunities and how businesses might exploit these. Promoting an understanding of the nature of an e-publishing ecology, it also moves the focus of industry discussion away from a manufacturing worldview. Includes notes on contributors and references. Publication is a joint project of the publisher and RMIT University, based on research funded under the Infrastructure and Industry Competitiveness Scheme (EPICS) of the Commonwealth Department of Industry, Science and Resources. Published in both paperback and downloadable PDF format.
