Common Ground, 2002 - Book industries and trade - 227 pages
Final of a series of four books that examines emerging markets for publishing services in general and books in particular. This volume has two major areas of thematic focus. First, it develops the notion of the regional 'cluster' as a tool for value chain management relevant to the printing and publishing industries. Second, it discusses specific issues relating to publishing industry development in non-metropolitan regions, and the applicability of clustering methodologies to this. 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.
