The publishing industry is all about spreading knowledge and information. Publishers and publishing experts play an important role in the process of developing an accessible and engaging publishing industry that benefits people and communities, crosses cultural and linguistic boundaries, and fosters creativity and diversity of opinions.
From research scientists to children’s book illustrators, from celebrity chefs to Nobel Laureates, publishing is about communicating ideas and connecting people with content that matters. Publishers are at the heart of the information economy, getting those ideas out to the world and the people that need them.Publishers Association
