When surfing the excellent catalogue of the Australian Open Access publisher re:press, I found a logo. As I am easy to distract, I clicked on it to find the interesting Australian organization below which “represents, advocates and applauds more than 100 small publishers around Australia and is a fan of independent publishing worldwide”.


Studying their report “A lovely kind of madness: small and independent publishing in Australia” (2007), I learned that it was founded in 2006 with the aim to tackle the biggest problem of small publishers: publicity and distribution. I think now one can say there is also a third problem for independent publishers making an organization like this even more important: it is nearly impossible for independent publishers to keep track of the ever changing digital technology.

The Small Press on the web and on twitter.
