This course will help journal managers to use and interpret financial

trends and develop appropriate plans and budgets to respond to these.

The day will comprise small group working, presentations and group
discussions.  Participants will study three different journals (reflecting
humanities, sciences and clinical medicine) each facing different problems
and development opportunities.  Participants will construct a profit and
loss account, interpret budgets and consider the consequent publishing
decisions and financial implications.

Who should attend: Journal managers with at least two years' experience who
have responsibility for their publications' financial contribution.  This
course is designed to follow on from the Introduction to Journals Finance

journals management.

The course will be held at the Institute of Public Finance,
