Digital publishing for small organizations

Simon Wilkinson and Jean Collins recently authored a set of excellent guidelines on digital publishing for small organizations.

Published by the FAO Fisheries and Aquaculture Department, the guidelines tackle the need to disseminate and share the results of [fisheries] research, especially where reliable, high speed and cost-effective Internet access is limited.

The guidelines are based on the years of experience of the Network of Aquaculture Centres in Asia-Pacific (NACA) and its partners. The approach is practical in orientation, covering topics including: (a) planning, building and maintaining a sustainable digital publishing system, focusing on a common scenario of setting up a Web site as a digital publishing platform; (b) producing user-friendly digital publications and making them accessible; (c) some recent international developments in digital publishing; and (d) recommended software tools and technical resources for further reading.
