Publishing
PUBLISHING is the dissemination of literature , music , or information —the activity of making information available to the general public. In some cases, authors may be their own publishers, meaning originators and developers of content also provide media to deliver and display the content for the same. Also, the word publisher can refer to the individual who leads a publishing company or an imprint or to a person who owns/heads a magazine. Traditionally, the term refers to the distribution of printed works such as books (the "book trade") and newspapers . With the advent of digital information systems and the Internet , the scope of publishing has expanded to include electronic resources such as the electronic versions of books and periodicals, as well as micropublishing , websites , blogs , video game publishers , and the like. Publishing includes the following stages of development: acquisition, copy editing , production, printing (and its electronic equivalents ), and marketing and distribution

Gutenberg Letter Press
A PRINTING PRESS is a device for applying pressure to an inked surface resting upon a print medium (such as paper or cloth), thereby transferring the ink. Typically used for texts, the invention and spread of the printing press was one of the most influential events in the second millennium. The printing press was invented in the Holy Roman Empire by the German Johannes Gutenberg around 1440, based on existing screw presses . Gutenberg, a goldsmith by profession, developed a printing system, by adapting existing technologies to printing purposes, as well as making inventions of his own. His newly devised hand mould made possible the precise and rapid creation of metal movable type in large quantities. The printing press spread within several decades to over two hundred cities in a dozen European countries. By 1500, printing presses in operation throughout Western Europe had already produced more than twenty million volumes. In the 16th century, with presses spreading further afield, their output rose tenfold to an estimated 150 to 200 million copies. The operation of a press became synonymous with the enterprise of printing, and lent its name to a new branch of media, "the press ". In Renaissance Europe, the arrival of mechanical movable type printing introduced the era of mass communication , which permanently altered the structure of society

Dissemination
To DISSEMINATE (from lat. _disseminare_ "scattering seeds"), in the field of communication , means to broadcast a message to the public without direct feedback from the audience. CONTENTS * 1 Meaning * 2 Usage * 3 See also * 4 References MEANING Dissemination takes on the theory of the traditional view of communication , which involves a sender and receiver. The traditional communication view point is broken down into a sender sending information, and receiver collecting the information processing it and sending information back, like a telephone line . With dissemination, only half of this communication model theory is applied. The information is sent out and received, but no reply is given. The message carrier sends out information, not to one individual, but many in a broadcasting system. An example of this transmission of information is in fields of advertising , public announcements and speeches. Another way to look at dissemination is that of which it derives from the Latin roots, the scattering of seeds. These seeds are metaphors for voice or words: to spread voice, words, and opinion to an audience. USAGE Dissemination can be powerful when adding rhetoric or other forms of persuasiveness to the speech

Literature
LITERATURE, in its broadest sense, is any single body of written works . More restrictively, literature is writing that is considered to be an art form, or any single writing deemed to have artistic or intellectual value, often due to deploying language in ways that differ from ordinary usage. Its Latin root _literatura_/_litteratura_ (derived itself from _littera_: _letter_ or _handwriting_) was used to refer to all written accounts, though contemporary definitions extend the term to include texts that are spoken or sung (oral literature ). The concept has changed meaning over time: nowadays it can broaden to have non-written verbal art forms, and thus it is difficult to agree on its origin, which can be paired with that of language or writing itself. Developments in print technology have allowed an evergrowing distribution and proliferation of written works, culminating in electronic literature . Literature can be classified according to whether it is fiction or non-fiction , and whether it is poetry or prose . It can be further distinguished according to major forms such as the novel , short story or drama ; and works are often categorized according to historical periods or their adherence to certain aesthetic features or expectations (genre )

Music
MUSIC is an art form and cultural activity whose medium is sound organized in time . The common elements of music are pitch (which governs melody and harmony ), rhythm (and its associated concepts tempo , meter , and articulation ), dynamics (loudness and softness), and the sonic qualities of timbre and texture (which are sometimes termed the "color" of a musical sound). Different styles or types of music may emphasize, de-emphasize or omit some of these elements. Music is performed with a vast range of instruments and vocal techniques ranging from singing to rapping ; there are solely instrumental pieces , solely vocal pieces (such as songs without instrumental accompaniment ) and pieces that combine singing and instruments. The word derives from Greek μουσική (_mousike_; "art of the Muses "). In its most general form, the activities describing music as an art form or cultural activity include the creation of works of music (songs, tunes, symphonies , and so on), the criticism of music , the study of the history of music , and the aesthetic examination of music . Ancient Greek and Indian philosophers defined music as tones ordered horizontally as melodies and vertically as harmonies. Common sayings such as "the harmony of the spheres " and "it is music to my ears" point to the notion that music is often ordered and pleasant to listen to

Information
INFORMATION is that which informs. In other words, it is the answer to a question of some kind. It is thus related to data and knowledge , as data represents values attributed to parameters, and knowledge signifies understanding of real things or abstract concepts. As it regards data, the information's existence is not necessarily coupled to an observer (it exists beyond an event horizon , for example), while in the case of knowledge, the information requires a cognitive observer . At its most fundamental level, information is any propagation of cause and effect within a system. Information is conveyed either as the content of a message or through direct or indirect observation of anything.That which is perceived can be construed as a message in its own right, and in that sense, information is always conveyed as the content of a message . Information can be encoded into various forms for transmission and interpretation (for example, information may be encoded into a sequence of signs , or transmitted via a sequence of signals ). It can also be encrypted for safe storage and communication. Information reduces uncertainty . The uncertainty of an event is measured by its probability of occurrence and is inversely proportional to that. The more uncertain an event, the more information is required to resolve uncertainty of that event. The bit is a typical unit of information , but other units such as the nat may be used

Content (media And Publishing)
In publishing, art, and communication, CONTENT is the information and experiences that are directed towards an end-user or audience . Content is "something that is to be expressed through some medium, as speech, writing or any of various arts". Content can be delivered via many different media including the Internet , television, audio CDs, books, magazines, and live events, such as conferences and stage performances. CONTENTS * 1 Content value * 2 Technological effects on content * 3 Criticism * 4 See also * 5 References CONTENT VALUEContent itself is what the end-user derives value from. Thus, "content" can refer to the information provided through the medium, the way in which the information was presented, as well as the added features included in the medium in which that information was delivered. The medium, however, provides little to no value to the end-user without the information and experiences that make up the content. Communication theory

Imprint (trade Name)
An IMPRINT of a publisher is a trade name under which it publishes a work. A single publishing company may have multiple imprints, often using the different names as brands to market works to various demographic consumer segments . DESCRIPTIONAn imprint of a publisher is a trade name —a name that a business uses for trading commercial products or services—under which a work is published . Imprints typically have a defining character or mission . In some cases, the diversity results from the takeover of smaller publishers (or parts of their business) by a larger company.

Newspaper
A NEWSPAPER is a serial publication containing news about current events , other informative articles about politics, sports, arts, and so on, and advertising . A newspaper is usually, but not exclusively, printed on relatively inexpensive, low-grade paper such as newsprint . The journalism organizations that publish newspapers are themselves often metonymically called newspapers. Newspapers developed in the 17th century, as information sheets for businessmen. By the early 19th century, many cities in Europe, as well as North and South America, published newspapers. As of 2017, most newspapers are now published online as well as in print . The online versions are called online newspapers or news websites. A wide variety of material is published in newspapers, including opinion columns, weather forecasts, reviews of local services, obituaries , birth notices, crosswords , editorial cartoons , comic strips , and advice columns. Most newspapers are businesses, and they pay their expenses with a mixture of subscription revenue, newsstand sales , and advertising revenue. Some newspapers with high editorial independence, high journalism quality, and large circulation are viewed as newspapers of record

Internet
The INTERNET is the global system of interconnected computer networks that use the Internet protocol suite (TCP/IP) to link devices worldwide. It is a _network of networks_ that consists of private, public, academic, business, and government networks of local to global scope, linked by a broad array of electronic, wireless, and optical networking technologies. The Internet carries an extensive range of information resources and services, such as the inter-linked hypertext documents and applications of the World Wide Web (WWW), electronic mail , telephony , and file sharing . The origins of the Internet date back to research commissioned by the United States federal government in the 1960s to build robust, fault-tolerant communication via computer networks. The linking of commercial networks and enterprises in the early 1990s marks the beginning of the transition to the modern Internet, and generated rapid growth as institutional, personal , and mobile computers were connected to the network. By the late 2000s , its services and technologies had been incorporated into virtually every aspect of modern life. Most traditional communications media, including telephony, radio, television, paper mail and newspapers are being reshaped or redefined by the Internet, giving birth to new services such as email , Internet telephony , Internet television , online music , digital newspapers, and video streaming websites

Micropublishing
MICROPUBLISHING is used in three senses. * The book publishing industry sometimes uses this term in discussing publishing companies below a certain revenue level. * It is also used to describe the use of efficient publishing and distribution techniques to publish a work intended for a specific micromarket . Typically, these works are not considered by larger publishers because of their low economy of scale and mass appeal and the difficulties that would arise in their marketing . * In the digital sense micro-publishing is the posting of short articles, posts, reviews, thought pieces etc. to a public website. Micro-publishing is usually done with the express purpose of sharing the content via search engines, social media, email or other forms of digital content distribution.The remainder of this article is about the second use of the term. To make micropublishing more economical, the works are often printed using POD ( Print On Demand ) printing techniques. Those new to the industry often use companies called "POD publishers", while those who have more experience or who are more profit-focused tend to skip these middlemen. POD printing reduces the required up-front investment in book publishing, allowing many more individuals and companies to enter the marketplace, and allowing niche markets to be served as never before. The ebook market is taking this one step further

Electronic Publishing
ELECTRONIC PUBLISHING (also referred to as E-PUBLISHING or DIGITAL PUBLISHING or ONLINE PUBLISHING) includes the digital publication of e-books , digital magazines , and the development of digital libraries and catalogues. Electronic publishing has become common in scientific publishing where it has been argued that peer-reviewed scientific journals are in the process of being replaced by electronic publishing. It is also becoming 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 in the Google Play Bookstore. Market research suggests that half of all magazine and newspaper circulation will be via digital delivery by the end of 2015 and that half of all reading in the United States will be done without paper by 2015. Although distribution via the Internet (also known as ONLINE PUBLISHING or WEB PUBLISHING when in the form of a website ) is nowadays strongly associated with electronic publishing, there are many non-network electronic publications such as encyclopedias on CD and DVD , as well as technical and reference publications relied on by mobile users and others without reliable and high speed access to a network

Blog
A BLOG (a truncation of the expression "WEBLOG") is a discussion or informational website published on the World Wide Web consisting of discrete, often informal diary -style text entries ("posts"). Posts are typically displayed in reverse chronological order, so that the most recent post appears first, at the top of the web page. Until 2009, blogs were usually the work of a single individual, occasionally of a small group, and often covered a single subject or topic. In the 2010s, "multi-author blogs" (MABs) have developed, with posts written by large numbers of authors and sometimes professionally edited. MABs from newspapers , other media outlets, universities , think tanks , advocacy groups , and similar institutions account for an increasing quantity of blog traffic. The rise of Twitter and other "microblogging " systems helps integrate MABs and single-author blogs into the news media. _Blog_ can also be used as a verb, meaning _to maintain or add content to a blog_. The emergence and growth of blogs in the late 1990s coincided with the advent of web publishing tools that facilitated the posting of content by non-technical users who did not have much experience with HTML or computer programming . Previously, a knowledge of such technologies as HTML and File Transfer Protocol had been required to publish content on the Web, and as such, early Web users tended to be hackers and computer enthusiasts

Video Game Publisher
A VIDEO GAME PUBLISHER is a company that publishes video games that they have either developed internally or externally by a video game developer . As with book publishers or publishers of DVD
DVD
movies, video game publishers are responsible for their product's manufacturing and marketing , including market research and all aspects of advertising . They often finance the development, sometimes by paying a video game developer (the publisher calls this _external development_) and sometimes by paying an internal staff of developers called a _studio_. The large video game publishers also distribute the games they publish, while some smaller publishers instead hire distribution companies (or larger video game publishers) to distribute the games they publish. Other functions usually performed by the publisher include deciding on and paying for any licenses used by the game; paying for localization ; layout, printing, and possibly the writing of the user manual; and the creation of graphic design elements such as the box design. Large publishers may also attempt to boost efficiency across all internal and external development teams by providing services such as sound design and code packages for commonly needed functionality
