Page Counts and Dollar Amounts: What is Value in Music Publishing?

Wednesday, November 6, 2019 3:00:00 PM America/Chicago

By Alexander Dean

The cost of each A-R edition is figured very finely, even down to hours per page, at each stage of the editing and production process, and the editions are priced as low as possible while still allowing the company to stay in business.

Our editorial department comprises Ph.D. musicologists who deal with difficult but necessary copyediting tasks: shepherding the creation of something as complex as a historical edition of music requires full-time, trained employees. The work that comes our way is high quality, presented to us by leaders in the field, representing artistic and scholarly creations that could be of lasting benefit to society, and A-R’s editorial department ensures that the editions we produce will fulfill that promise.

By Danielle Pacha

Last year I participated in a panel discussion on “Careers in Publishing,” sponsored by the Genetics Society of America. I was initially surprised when a colleague from the University of Wisconsin Press asked me to appear on the panel, as I wondered what I—a musicologist—could offer an audience of geneticists. But it turned out that I and my fellow panelists, a mix of STEM and HSS specialists, had more in common than I had expected—and much to collectively share with attendees—due to our common experiences in the world of academic publishing. This post summarizes our conversation, which touched on the state of academic publishing today and potential career paths for those interested in breaking into the field.
