Editorial Commissioning in Book Printing Houses
Origin:Image Printing  Data: 3/31/2011  Keywords: Book Printing Houses,consumer book printing sector

In consumer book printing sector, editors may cover adult fiction, or specialize in hardback or paperback book printing lists, non-fiction areas or children books printing. In educational, academic and STM houses, an editor may concentrate on several subjects, spanning a variety of academic levels and markets, or on product types, such as journals or textbooks. The style and identity of each list are the outcome of the editor's attitudes and effort.

A publisher depends on these editors to provide a sufficient flow of publishable projects to maintain the planned level of activity sometimes far less or three times more. Editors are assessed on the revenue they bring in or the overall profit, or contribution, of their books. They are seen by some publishers as business managers. Publishers may have electronic systems in which editor record their output in terms of titles commissioned and forecast revenue. Editors out of tune with senior management regarding the character of the books, or who fail to produce a profit, leave voluntarily or are fired. The job is high risk and exposed.

Commissioning editors may commission in a number of ways:

  • pro-actively: by thinking of ideas for book printing companines and then finding authors to write them
  • reactively: by reacting to book proposals or manuscripts
  • collaboratively: by formulating ideas in dialogue with authors
  • by republishing previously published books
  • by co-publishing books being published elsewhere or in other editions by other companies

Sometimes the phrase Acquisitions Editor is used. This is a near synonym for Commissioning Editor. Commissioning has not been formulated into a profession. There is little formal training available. Recently there has been some attempt in the UK to articulate and establish professional standards. Most commissioning editors work up to the post through experience in other roles e.g. Editorial Assistant. Some editors see the post as a stepping stone to a senior management job; others are content to remain in the post and to build a reputation as a star editor. There is little consensus on what makes a good commissioning editors, though most people in the industry would agree that the following are desirable and important:

  • business acumen: understanding the market and the company's place in the market
  • creativity
  • linguistic sensitivity
  • communicativeness
  • project management skills
