  • History of Print Publishing
    radio it was the great means of communication Chappell 3 As paper became more widely available in the thirteenth century writing became more prominent When the need to reproduce texts became greater Gutenberg s movable type came about followed by a variety of other printing processes By 1500 somewhere around 12 000 000 books in 35 000 editions had been printed The world s first newspaper was published in Germany in 1609 Chappell 127 But with such volumes suddenly being distributed regulations were made to prohibit unrestrained publishing in 1637 when England limited the number of print shops and foundries by decrees In the cradle years of printing opposition came chiefly from organized calligraphers and illuminators whose livelihood was threatened The content of manuscripts was seldom in question most were classics or ecclesiastical writings and many were in Greek or Latin which made them inaccessible to all but a few scholars and churchmen But with the coming of the seventeenth century printing was being viewed as a threat to established power both religious and political Chappell 112 113 Though people like John Milton spoke out in favor of freedom of press and against requiring official censoring before publication of any

  • Advantages and Disadvantages of Print Publishing
    is also an important consideration With the accessibility of information on the Web something like a newspaper s current events can easily be updated and made readily available to the public at a moments notice Marketing In the case of publishing works in print writers have the advantage of targeting an audience as well as making a profit In magazines advertisers supply added income bookstores bring in a great deal of money as well Reader Capabilities Printed publications also have the advantage of creating a design based on whatever capabilities the publisher has with regard to fonts layout photos and overall size of the publication Once a printed publication is in the hands of the reader the only requirements remain are for readers to be able to see and to read This is not necessarily so easy with on line publications Since they are limited by the technological limitations of the users screen and memory capacity Editing However being printed also indicates a problem in itself With a text that must be finalized by the printing press on paper the final product is relatively unchangeable Deadlines are created met and taken to press Once the proof is approved the machines do all the work without comprehending any possible major or minor errors in the text When the press and bindery are done there s no turning back If you have overlooked any details it is up to your readers to notice But with on line publishing there is a much greater amount of ease in editing If a date is wrong a word misspelled or tense out of place a simple correction can be made to the file and updated on the Web Time Along the same line as editing another disadvantage to print publishing is the time that it

  • Advantages and Disadvantages of Online Publishing
    to link to yours need to be regularly contacted to make sure that link will remain on their site So while marketing and distribution might be cheaper for the online publication it is not without it s costs especially in terms of labor and time Editing Editing is another plus involved in online publishing For the most part editing should and does occur before the new issue goes online However we ve all come across several typos in print documents of any kind that weren t caught before the publication was sent off to the printer In online publishing there is no final product Errors can be corrected in a matter of minutes or seconds even For example in one issue of the Nieve Roja Review we had a submission by a fellow grad student that detailed events that very possibly could be considered sensitive material if certain persons happened across the work It also pointed out the private workings of an industry that many people in the public might not be pleased to read about They weren t unethical but merely contextual and possibly damaging to that particular institution Therefore the author after the issue went online decided she d rather make some changes to the names places and descriptions used We were able to take the work out of the publication with a notice that it would appear again in the next issue That would not have been possible in print In print what s done is done once it s on the paper Time An online publication also requires constant upkeep even in between issues Links need to be tested regularly in order to avoid linkrot And because editing can be done at any time there s a responsibility attached to make sure what needs to be fixed is Meanwhile with print once it s printed it s out of your hands In addition deadlines for online publication are merely self imposed For print the editors have to take into consideration that the printing itself takes a certain amount of time as does distribution Therefore their deadlines are fairly rigid However for online publishing deadlines are good to get the ball going but the actual publishing can occur at any time without the dependence on the time frame of another Audience Audience is a category that can be considered both a pro and a con for online publishing While your audience is not limited to only those hit in your distribution efforts it is also not the dedicated group of readers that most print publications can count on So while your publication may be more widely available that doesn t mean that people are reading it It s more difficult to determine your readership in online publications First you can t know the demographics of your readers as easily as you might with print Some people have attempted to stick with the subscription method to alleviate some of this problem but then readership often goes down because

  • Things to Consider For Online Publishing
    to make money but you will spend a lot of time focusing on how to accomplish this Meeting deadlines in print means dealing with content as well as advertising which can be stressful and frustrating Online your deadlines are self imposed and you will most likely not be worrying about ads Marketing Distribution and Circulation You want your publication to reach the greatest number of people who will be interested in reading it Consider the following when deciding whether to publish online or in print Distribution online is cheaper than the physical delivery of printed pages but there are no clear cut ways to target and market on the Web The best bet is to link to similar sites and hope for the best This is another reason why advertising revenue is hard to come by on the Web If your publication is local you may be better off in print Local advertisers can have copies of your publication dropped off at their shops and places of business for sale and distribution This relationship is impossible on the Web If you are planning on being national or worldwide the Web has distinct advantages but you will need to be very creative with marketing your work Content and Quality A high quality publication with high quality content will attract more readers and advertisers Be aware of the following things Many well known and talented writers graphic designers and editors will not be attracted to working on the Web First there is no money in it and second they cannot be guaranteed a substantial readership People still seem to like the look and feel of print magazines and often complain that they dislike reading from a computer screen A high quality print magazine may contain extensive text and interviews that people will

  • Definition of Organization
    Reid English Department To me organization is the arrangement of the larger units of meaning in a paper That s one of the things that s going to be very different from one course to the next What are the expected patterns of organization A lab report is very different from a scientific report is very different from a poem is very different from a report in the newspaper All of these have their own patterns of organization all of which are acceptable in specific disciplines Kate Kiefer English Department Organization typically refers to the large elements of text structure Sometimes these elements are formalized in practice as in the typical lab report through consistent use of headings Sometimes elements of organization are only informally acknowledged like the thesis of an academic paper Most writers across the university would agree however that organization refers to the ordering of ideas Organization in writing is how ideas are presented Typically organization refers to the larger parts of a piece of writing although it also refers to how paragraphs and sentences are written The flow of a piece of writing affects how readers interpret ideas If the organization does not provide readers with
