Diploma in E-Publishing – InDesign Pagination
Electronic Publishing or E-Publishing includes the digital publication of e-books, EPUBs, digital magazines and the development of digital libraries and catalogs. E-Publishing has become common in scientific publishing where it has been argued that scientific journals are in the process of being replaced by E-Publishing. It has also become common to distribute books, magazines and newspapers to consumers through tablet reading devices, a market that is growing by millions each year, generated by online vendors such as Apple's iTunes bookstore, Amazon's bookstore for Kindle, and books from Google Playstore.
Role of an Electronic Publisher
There are several people involved in the publishing process starting from Author, Publisher, Designer, Typesetter and Printer. Publishers accept manuscripts for publishing and make information available for public through Books, Journals, Internet, etc. Once the manuscript for the book or the articles comes to the publisher from the author, the next step is to get the files transferred from the publisher to the E-Publishing unit. Followed by pre-editing, the files are cleaned up of extra spaces, paragraph returns, junk characters and other unnecessary text elements. The next step is data conversion, where the text is converted or tagged to fit into an XML workflow. After the data is converted, the next step is to process the images, drawings, charts and other graphics received from the author. Once the text and the graphics are ready, the next step will be to assemble them together in a layout according to the supplied specifications. This process is called Pagination. The final book or articles are then checked for suitability for printing in a process called pre-flighting and are then uploaded to the customer for approval.
