Publishers manage the creation and production of a wide range of print-based media, including books, magazines, newspapers, software and online content. They select, assess and critique the content of the work they publish and oversee and authorise design and budgetary decisions. They also organise the scheduling and timelines for printing, reprinting or manufacturing and marketing published content. They liaise with authors and editors, designers, illustrators and photographers, and printers and distributors. Publishers also licence their content to overseas publishing companies, and organise and attend the launches of their published products.
