Anna is a second year full-time PhD research student at Edinburgh Napier University within the School of Arts and Creative Industries. Her research focuses on e-publishing in small nations in Europe and examines how small and medium sized publishers are coping with the oligopoly structure in e-book distribution. The research will look at innovative e-publishing practices and the role current policy frameworks as well as different book cultures are playing in establishing new business models. Edinburgh Napier University awarded her with a three-year studentship to fund her research, especially to collect qualitative and quantitative data about different book markets in Europe.
Prior to relocating to Scotland, Anna graduated from Johannes Gutenberg University (Mainz, Germany) in 2014, with an MSc in media management. Her thesis was entitled “Make or buy? A qualitative analysis of the organisational handling of digital innovations in the German publishing sector”. She then worked as an e-book product manager in the digital department of MairDumont, Germany’s largest travel information media group.
