For Societies

Cambridge Media aims to create strong partnerships with Societies, enabling each Society's publication to grow and develop while at all times maintaining the highest levels of quality and integrity. This commitment has provided much success in bringing new journals to market as well as continuing to improve the quality of well-established journals.

A journal provides many advantages for a Society, including dissemination of expert knowledge, a clear channel of communication between its members, as well as a sense of ownership and camaraderie between the members of a Society. It also provides significant benefits in raising the awareness of the Society, increasing their profile locally, nationally and internationally and aiding the development of special interest groups.

Cambridge Media has a strong track record producing well-established journals, enjoying much success in creating significant improvements in the bottom line performance of many titles.
We also take great pride in producing new publications, such as the recently launched Chinese-language edition of the World Council of Enterostomal Therapists Journal, to allow specialist communication to specialist target markets.

Cambridge Media has its own web-based electronic platform for the exclusive use of its partner Societies to publish journals electronically. And we partner with ScholarOne to provide a manuscript management system for editors, reviewers and authors.

As most Societies will understand, Professional Publishing requires a painstaking approach to ensure accuracy and quality and can therefore be deemed an expensive process. However, a good publisher should also be able to optimise the financial position of their partner Society. Cambridge Media has developed and initiated innovative ways, such as revenue sharing, to improve the financial performance of many Society publications. Our expansive range of journals also provides the opportunity for cross publication advertising, further increasing the revenue generated through the partnership.

In summary, Cambridge Publishing is able to provide the experience, commitment and service to ensure your Society achieves the optimum return from its publications. Contact Greg Paull to discuss the benefits of Cambridge Media being your publishing partner.

Cambridge Publishing utilises state-of-the-art technology and provides a comprehensive 'in-house' structure, from initial design and copy editing, marketing and advertising, administration and database management through to print production and distribution. All editorial and printing services are managed locally, ensuring our 'hands-on' approach can occur from inception to completion. Unlike some publishers in Australia, Cambridge Publishing does not out-source any of the publishing or printing processes to overseas centres.

In Professional Publishing, the essential role of the publisher is to communicate the author's message - whether it be discoveries to share, improved procedures to describe or new technologies to explain - to a predefined target market. The expertise of Cambridge Publishing staff  allows the technical and professional competence of a Society's writers and contributors to shine through to the audience. To coin a marketing phrase, it is all about getting the right message to the right people at the right time at the right price using the right methodology.
