GOAL 4: Quality Education


Publishing is the business of making information available to the public, particularly the sale or dissemination of literature, music, or information using both digital and non-digital media.. In some cases, authors may be their own publishers, meaning originators and developers of content also provide media to deliver and display their content. "Publisher" can refer both to an individual who leads a publishing company or an imprint and to an individual who leads a magazine.
