Publishing Perspectives is an online business news outlet that covers the trends, people, and companies shaping the international book industry. Our emphasis is on international book publishing news, trends, and issues. We are a news medium operating to journalistic standards, not a blog site. We do not accept outside content.

Read by publishers, literary agents and scouts, service providers and publishing industry specialists, Publishing Perspectives is a leading source of information on international book publishing for the industry. Our target readership is the professionals of that industry, rather than consumers. If we focus on a book or author, it’s in the context of trends and issues.

Our mission is to help build and contribute to the internationalist publishing community by offering information that publishing and media professionals need in order to connect, cooperate, and work together.

We believe that international collaboration and a supportive world community leads to a strong, vibrant publishing industry, one that can continue to provide education and access to literature, promote literacy and reading, and foster cultural understanding around the world.
