The Australian Publishers Association (APA) has announced that it has been successful in securing funds from the Copyright Agency’s Cultural Fund for the production of two accessible publishing guides. Michael Gordon-Smith, Chief Executive of the APA has commented:
“This funding is a boon to two priority projects for the Australian Inclusive Publishing Initiative. Important information will get to the right people sooner and that should make a difference to the level of inclusive publishing. Uncertainty is a brake on what gets done. This funding will mean we can create two key guides. A copyright guide will present the legal framework clearly and succinctly. A publishing guide will introduce inclusive publishing practices, and include practical information on workflow and content. It’s a valuable opportunity to help build the industry’s capability.”
