Anna Klamet is a PhD research student at Edinburgh Napier University, who graduated from Johannes Gutenberg University (Mainz, Germany) in 2014, with an MSc in media management. Her thesis was entitled “Make or buy? A qualitative analysis of the organisational handling of digital innovations in the German publishing sector”.
Prior to relocating to Scotland, Anna worked as an e-book product manager in the digital department of MairDumont, Germany’s largest travel information media group.
Anna was awarded a three-year studentship to fund her research at Edinburgh Napier. Her research focuses on e-publishing in small nations in Europe and examines how small and medium sized publishers are coping with the oligopoly structure in e-book distribution. The research will look at innovative e-publishing practices and the role current policy frameworks are playing in establishing new business models.
