European governments are gradually ceding control of national media to international organizations such as

Publishers' relationships on the web: An examination of how publishers' websites are causing changes in
relations in the book industry / Royle, Jo - Stockdale, Rosemary
New Review of Information Networking 1/2009

Abstract:
This research, funded by the British National Bibliography Research Fund, examined how publishers' websites
are causing changes in relations in the book industry in order to gain further understanding of the implications
of the impact of the Internet on the publishing chain. The paper is set within the context of the development
of electronic commerce and how business to consumer commerce is now being overtaken by the activity in
business to business trading. Publishers have followed the main business trends in using their websites to
develop relationships directly with the consumer, but have been rather slower in developing their business to
business activity through the Internet. This study investigated what changes were taking place as a result of
current publisher activity on the Web and how these changes were affecting the traditional lines of
communication in the book industry. An analysis of a range of consumer publishers' websites was carried out
to see what facilities they were offering both to the general public and to business partners within the
industry. Questionnaires and interviews were then conducted to establish how publishers, booksellers and
wholesalers were using publishers' websites and whether these sites were beneficial to the industry as a
whole. Facilities found on the websites were examined and analysed in order to determine their usefulness
and how they might be developed to aid business to business commerce. Additionally, several issues relating
to online sales, changes in sales patterns and changes in working methods were discussed. Although an
amount of quantitative data is included in the report, many of the issues raised relied on the perceptions and
opinions of practitioners in the book trade.

New Wine in Old Bottles: Current Developments in Digital Delivery and Dissemination / Ayris, Paul
European Review 1/2009

Abstract
The purpose of this paper is to identify and assess current developments in scholarly publishing in Europe.
Current models for disseminating content have limitations and Open Access models of publishing have been
endorsed by the European Universities Association. The Harvard mandate for the deposit of materials in Open
Access repositories is a bold new development, and the community is watching it with interest. It is possible
that e-books may be the next large form of content to be made available to the user. Users certainly express
interest in using this form of material. However, current library systems need to be developed in order to cope
with this mass of new content. E-theses, available in Open Access from institutional repositories, are a form of
content that is made much more visible than the paper equivalents. The DART-Europe portal, supported by
LIBER (Association of European Research Libraries) currently provides access to 100,000 research theses in
150 European Universities. At an institutional and academic level, however, much remains to be done to
embed Open Access into the landscape: the current situation is described in a new report for UCL (University
College London), produced by RAND Europe.
Journals and the Production of Knowledge: A Publishing Perspective
McCartan, Patrick
British Journal of Political Science2/2010

Abstract
Stand-alone paper copies of journals have occupied academic library shelves largely unchanged for hundreds
of years. Despite the prevalence of perverse incentives and market imperfections acknowledged in the
business model for journals, the industry was characterized by durable relationships and institutions.
Digitization and the internet revolution have transformed the landscape, giving rise to new institutional
models and possibilities to challenge existing market inefficiencies in competition and distribution. However,
digital information goods themselves guarantee neither appropriate incentives nor social efficiency. This
article considers the collision of the new digital economy with an established, imperfect market for journals. It
looks at some key changes that are now irreversible and their consequences for publishing in political science.

2/ Le devenir numérique de l'édition - Du livre objet au livre droit
PATINO Bruno
FRANCE. Ministère de la culture et de la communication
Paris ; La Documentation française
( Collection des rapports officiels )
Quels sont les défis portés par la « révolution » numérique pour les acteurs de l'édition (auteurs, éditeurs,
distributeurs, libraires, etc.) ? Après la musique, le cinéma, la presse, la photographie, le livre vit à son tour les
expérimentations, les innovations et les mises en réseaux que permettent des contenus dématérialisés. C'est
dans ce contexte que Bruno Patino a été chargé par la Ministre de la culture et de la communication d'une
mission sur le livre numérique. La commission présidée par M. Patino revient sur l'histoire et les
caractéristiques de l'univers numérique, pour aboutir plus particulièrement à la place du livre au sein de celui-
ci. Elle observe notamment que le livre a bénéficié, contrairement à d'autres biens culturels tels que la
musique ou le cinéma, d'une « maturation plus lente ». Consciente de l'éventuelle accélération de l'entrée de
l'édition dans l'univers numérique, la commission préconise une série de mesures organisées au sein de quatre
actions : promotion d'une offre légale attractive ; défense de la propriété intellectuelle ; mise en place de
mécanismes permettant aux détenteurs de droits d'avoir un rôle central dans la détermination des prix ;
conduite d'une politique active auprès des institutions communautaires.

3/ Situation du livre - Evaluation de la loi relative au prix du livre et questions prospectives
GAYMARD Hervé
FRANCE. Ministère de la culture et de la communication

Paris ; Gallimard : La Documentation française
La filière économique du livre peut être considérée comme la première des industries culturelles : le marché
du livre représente un chiffre d'affaires annuel de près de 5 milliards d'euros en 2007. Dès le Moyen-âge et le
début de l'imprimerie, ont été mis en place des usages commerciaux. Au XXème siècle, différentes sortes de
prix régissaient le commerce du livre (prix administrés, prix conseillés, discount dans les grandes surfaces). La
loi du 10 août 1981 a réglementé le prix du livre (prix unique, autorisant seulement une remise de 5%). Ce
rapport de la Commission présidée par Hervé Gaymard propose un bilan de la loi, qu'il estime positif, les
objectifs ayant été atteints (maintien et développement du réseau de diffusion, vitalité et diversité de la
création éditoriale). Il fait une comparaison avec les régimes de prix des livres (prix libres ou fixes) dans les
autres pays et leur impact sur la production, les ventes, les pratiques de lecture... Selon la Commission, la
modification de la loi aurait un effet néfaste sur l'industrie du livre. Toutefois, elle propose de nouvelles
mesures pour le secteur, tels l'allongement des délais de paiement, des dispositifs de soutien, l'élargissement
des horaires d'ouverture au public des bibliothèques. Se pose également la question du livre numérique, les
facteurs décisifs d'"éclosion" de l'édition numérique n'étant pas encore réunis (problèmes de la recherche du
modèle économique, du piratage, du respect du droit d'auteur...).
