Because I wrote the 15-page research paper back in 2010, Dr. Jerz has granted me the opportunity to write about my findings and observations while developing the Setonian Magazine.
Per our discussion, I’ll be writing 10 pages on the process, what we hoped to accomplish and what actually happened. The remaining few pages will be devoted to thoughts and tips for what future editors should do. Although I won’t be using a whole lot of scholarly research for my essay, I’ll be able to reflect on some of the research I conducted in 2010 concerning eBooks and the future of the book industry in general.
At this point, I can already tell that the biggest issue with creating the magazine has been developing a working layout for the magazine. Also, advertising has been an issue. Although we worked with the Department of Development to get some advertising, I’m thinking it would’ve been very beneficial if we’d gone out to recruit businesses as well.
I hope to use this paper as an overall guide and tool to help future editors to make an even better version of the magazine. I’ll also be writing a detailed explanation for the practices of using iBooks Author to develop the first-ever full length eBook for the Setonian.
As for the “digital artifact,” I’m pretty sure I have that area covered seeing as I’ll be creating not one but two full magazine layouts for the publication.
