E2 Research Report presents the findings of the initial research undertaken within the E2 project. It had four main objectives:
1) To collate National Research data findings, provided by each partner.
2) To gather coherent, EU wide data on publishing sector and its transformations.
3) To collect the most interesting best practices in the digital editorial field, providing also a clear scheme of the main innovative features, targets and fruition models as well as content delivery strategies and technologies, business to consumers and business to business models.
4) To identify the professional and vocational skills to train during the experimentation phase of the project according to the needs of small and medium publishing houses.
Description The E2 Research Report describes the current best practices related to the most innovative ICT applications developed by publishing companies to create innovative products, from an EU wide perspective (focused on the context of the 5 partner countries). This literature review contains EU wide data and analysis of research, current practices and publishing contexts relating to the use of ICT within publishing companies with an emphasis on innovative, user-oriented and easy to use digital editorial products; research and practices related to design and creation of innovative editorial products (e-book and enhanced book) and new marketing and distribution strategies.
Result Small and medium companies - defined as employing less than 250 people and with an annual turnover below € 50 million - working in publishing are not only important economically (small and medium enterprises count for more than 90% of the companies of the publishing sector); but they also make an essential contribution to cultural and democratic diversity across Europe. Increasing use of internet and the rapid development of free-sheet press titles represent a significant challenge for the printed publishing sector.
