Seybold Publications recently announced a new Seybold Report publication, and has delivered the first issue online. "The Seybold Report on Publishing Systems and The Seybold Report on Internet Publishing are converging: The new Seybold Report: Analyzing Publishing Technology [ISSN: 1533-9211] covers the full spectrum of technology and business issues facing publishers today." The new report will appear twice a month, and the first three issues will be online free. Seybold Report coverage will include: Content and Asset Management; Digital Rights Management; Digital Presses and Variable Data; Color Management and Proofing; Personalization; Business News and Issues; Broadband; Wireless; E-Books; CTP and On-Press Imaging; Print Workflow; Standards. For more than a decade, Seybold Publications has provided consistent high-quality information about SGML and XML technologies in the domain of print and electronic publishing. The published critical reviews of SGML/XML publishing software are thoroughly researched . Much of the credit for SGML/XML coverage in the Seybold publications is due Mark Walter, now Seybold Report senior editor. Mark "directed the editorial team of The Seybold Report on Internet Publishing since its inception in 1996, and has been an analyst and consultant in publishing technology since 1985. He was a member of the founding team of XML.com and covers XML-related technologies for Seybold. He also contributes expertise in cross-media technologies, including systems for managing digital assets, content and editorial workflows." Articles from the new report will continue to be abstracted in the "Articles and Papers" section of the XML Cover Pages, as have other Seybold contributions beginning in the 1980s. Seybold Publications was founded in 1971 by John W. Seybold and Jonathan Seybold.
I wrote in April 1998: "In the Seybold Reports, Seybold Publications provides some of the very best technical reporting on SGML products. In particular, the Seybold Report on Publishing Systems consistently covers the major conferences, trade shows, and seminars in which SGML-supporting software is featured. SGML software product descriptions and critical reviews are frequently more detailed in the Seybold Report on Publishing Systems than in any other publication. The Reports include Seybold Report on Publishing Systems (SRPS), The Seybold Report on Internet Publishing, Seybold Report on Desktop Publishing (SRDP), Digital Media: A Seybold Report, and The Bulletin: Seybold News & Views on Electronic Publishing. The series Seybold Special Report is used for occasional/special publications on dedicated topics. Free sample issues of either Seybold Report on Publishing Systems or Seybold Report on Desktop Publishing are available. Sample links to other locations in this database:
