Job Description for Associate Publisher

In some cases, associate publishers may choose to focus on one specific aspect of their company's publication, such as advertising or editorials. However, they are generally expected to have a comprehensive knowledge of all aspects of the publication process. This includes a thorough understanding of their company's production cycle, as well as the nature of press and distribution operations.
