Podcasting article in The Bookseller

For an article in The Bookseller magazine on industry podcasts, Caroline Carpenter interviewed Angus Phillips from OICP and one of our alumni, Flavia Marcocci. 

The team at the Oxford International Centre for Publishing (OICP) started recording audio content from interesting visitors and industry speakers more than a decade ago. Angus Phillips, director of the OICP, says: 'We aim to keep current with the industry and the latest developments. The podcast is part of our research and also supports our teaching. There is no strict format; the content is varied across topics and industry sectors.' Guests are selected to offer insight into the industry and the latest trends.

A former OICP student, Flavia Marcocci, began researching and producing her own podcast as her major project for her MA in Digital Publishing in 2018. Marcocci, who is platform manager at AI search firm Yext and previously worked at Polity and DK, launched Publishing Insight because 'at the time, there weren’t many career podcasts focusing on the publishing industry and the roles that comprise a publishing house'.

Monograph publishing - OICP report now published

The results are published of research carried out by the Oxford International Centre for Publishing into the publishing of monographs or research-based books. A survey of English language academic publishers in the UK, Europe and North America was undertaken in 2021. The objective was to gather data on the current landscape of academic monograph publishing in the arts, humanities, and social sciences and to identify trends. Respondents were asked about their monograph publishing activities, sales, distribution, and about the future direction of their programmes. The report offers independent analysis of publisher information that may be helpful in informing the debate among stakeholders as to the future of the publication of long-form research in the arts, humanities and social sciences. The results offer key insights into the growth in output of titles, the level of print sales, the move towards open access, usage of monographs, and their pricing.

Samantha Harman @PubOxford appears in Media Quotes of the Year 2020

Samantha Harman of OICP @Samantha_editor was quoted alongside fellow journalists Alan Rusbridger and Geordie Greig in InPublishing’s selection of the Media Quotes of the Year.

Writing about the online abuse of journalists, she said: ‘We’ve seen a toxic rhetoric emerge over the last couple of years that all journalists are “scum” and that it’s acceptable to hide behind the internet to say whatever you want to them. It reached a boiling point this year during coverage of the Black Lives Matter movement, with reporters having to deal with abhorrent, disgusting and racist comments on stories.’

Caroline Davis @PubOxford publishes new book

Dr Caroline Davis from OICP has published a new book with Cambridge University Press in their Elements series: African Literature and the CIA.

During the period of decolonization in Africa, the CIA subsidized a number of African authors, editors and publishers as part of its anti-communist covert propaganda strategy. Her new book unravels the hidden networks and associations underpinning African literary publishing in the 1960s; it investigates the success of the CIA in disrupting and infiltrating African literary magazines and publishing firms, and determines the extent to which new circuits of cultural and literary power emerged. Based on new archival evidence relating to the Transcription Centre, The Classic and The New African, it includes case studies of Wole Soyinka, Nat Nakasa and Bessie Head, which assess how their literary careers were influenced by these transnational literary institutions, and their response to these interventions.
