Questions about publishing and which guides we make


How do you decide which guides to publish?

As we only cover outdoor activities and are walkers and trekkers ourselves, we hope we have our ear close to the ground.

Ideas can come from almost anywhere.

One is users calling in asking for the Cicerone guide to somewhere when we don’t have one. After a few calls we finally get the message.

Other editors and magazines often have ideas – ‘why don’t you do a guide to ABC?’ which we investigate. Likewise retailers and our distributors around the world make many suggestions for guides.

Our authors are a fertile source of ideas and we work closely with them to develop a range of guide ideas.

And we have our own opinions and ideas about what we should cover.

Out of all this, plus a little more formal thinking, comes a broad plan of what we will be doing over the next few years. We tend to be scheduled about 2 years ahead, but have a rough plan that keeps us thinking up to five years in the future.
