The considerable reduction in the quantity of educational, methodological and scientific/economic literature in 1990s forced the Kyiv National Economics University to organise the publication of textbooks developed by its own scientific personnel. The powerful teaching and professional potential of the KNEU served as the basis for the establishment of a publishing office in 1996. A few years later, it managed to meet not only the University's demand. While the University published merely three textbooks with the total volume of 55 printer's sheets, it published more than 140 books with the total volume of more than 3,000 printer's sheets in 2004 and more than 150 books with the total volume of more than 3,200 printer's sheets in 2005. The total volume of the published products has exceeded 15,700 printer's sheets since the establishment of the publishing office.
Our best publications of year 2000 gained recognition at the International Book Fair in Frankfurt am Main. The high level of our publications is confirmed every year at International Exhibitions of Educational Institutions "Modern Education" in Ukraine (the publishing office was awarded Gold Medals in years 2002, 2003, and 2004; the Gaudeamus International Textbook Fair in Romania; the 2005 International Book Fair and Exhibition "Books of Belarus" in Belarus; the Warsaw International Book Fair; the Moscow International Book Exhibition and Fair, as well as at the Publishers' Forum in Lviv, book exhibitions in Kyiv, Kharkiv, Odesa, Dnipropetrovsk, Zaporizhzhia, Lviv, Kherson and Yalta.
The highly qualified team of the University's publishing office is capable of performing the most complicated orders, while ensuring the appropriate scientific and literary level of publications. Our publishing technologies guarantee the prompt supply of educational, methodological and curriculum literature meeting the demand of higher education establishments and the contemporary market.
KNEU is publishing more and more books with every day. We are successfully using Direct Mail and Book by Mail systems to provide as many readers as possible with our books. We consider the Internet shop of the publishing office, KNEU's virtual library and our own web site to be suitable and appropriate forms of the delivery of books or the information about them. Marketing and PR events aimed at not only promoting our books, but also at the obtainment of the status of an elite research and educational institution by the University are very important for the marketing studies.
The books with KNEU's logos are used by more than 2,000 respondents, including higher and secondary education establishments, book traders, enterprises, banks, investment companies, centres of science and technology, and representatives of the small and medium business, etc. The most active recipients of our products include Znannia Society in Kyiv, Dnipropetrovsk, Lviv and Kharkiv library hubs, the Book House in Donetsk, the Interregional Personnel Management Academy, the Accounting and Audit Institute, the Management and Finance Institute, and many others.
While we provide services to more than 2,000 respondents, we do hope that this number will go up substantially soon, together with circulations of the University's publications. Books published by KNEU are welcome guests even in the most remote corners of Ukraine.
