comment:
"This handbook covers most aspects of journals publishing and journals management, but special emphasis is put on systems management, subscription fulfilment, financial control, and effective marketing and distribution, including a chapter on journals marketing on the internet. It also includes a series of model guidelines, model forms, and other documentation that provide illustrative examples of good practice. Additionally, a resources section gives names and addresses of major subscription agents worldwide, resources for developing mailing lists, and details of major review and publicity outlets for African journals. There is also a annotated bibliography and a appendix about "Professional editorial standards" which sets out the requisite skills needed by all those editing in the English-language print media." (catalogue African Books Collective 1998)
 
"Aims to assist journal editors in Africa to improve their publishing operations, and provides guidelines for good practice, and good housekeeping, not only for those coming to journals publishing for the first time, but also for those who already have some experience in academic serials publishing. This second edition has been revised, expanded and updated after being tested during a series of practical workshops held for African journal editors and publishers. Covering most aspects of journals publishing and management, the handbook puts special emphasis on systems management, subscription fulfilment, financial control, and effective marketing and distribution, including a chapter (now somewhat dated) on journals marketing on the Internet. It also includes a series of model guidelines, model forms, and other documentation that provide illustrative examples of good practice. Additionally, there is a resources section, an annotated bibliography, and a glossary. Two specially commissioned contributions cover desk-top publishing for journal production, and computerized subscription invoicing and fulfilment for small journal publishers." (Hans M. Zell, Publishing, Books & Reading in Sub-Saharan Africa, 3d ed. 2008, nr. 2489)
