Edinburgh University Press is the leading University Press in Scotland so I was very excited to obtain a placement in journal production with them for this term. In particular, I was excited to work with journals as during last term for the Publishing in Context module we had to choose a company to study and I chose Edinburgh University Press. By the time that I had finished my case study I realized that I had no idea how journals were produced so I feel that this placement will fill that particular gap in my knowlegde.

I will be working on one of the two journals that they acquired for 2017, Moreana. As you might be able to guess from the title this journal is about all things Thomas More. I will be working on the back lists, making surethat all the previous issues are present correct before uploading to the EUP’s website.

I am very much looking forward to my placement as from my research in the first trimester I understand EUP to have a very good work ethic.
