Typology of Trade
The Typology of Trade Publishing
University presses publish a wide variety of books, including national trade, regional trade, and trade reference titles. This session will explore what's behind a trade list: how we plan for and find these books, how we develop them, and how we publish them successfully. Along the way, panelists will weigh risks and rewards and will address the role of trade publishing in their press's mission.
