Collins Academic 18-month weekly diary

Many thanks to Collins for giving me this diary as a sample to review!

Many academic-year diaries are aimed at students. This is the first one I've seen aimed at academic professionals.

This weekly diary has a hard cover and measures a little larger than A5 at 6 inches wide and 8 1/2 inches tall.


Inside the front cover there is a overview planner for all of the 2012-2013 academic year.

Here is the table of contents showing the huge number of information and reference pages.  There's loads of info that would be useful to professors and other academic professionals.

There's travel information for the UK with reference phone numbers:

There are four Term planners for plotting your schedule:

Here's just one example of the many information pages in the book:

The weekly format has lined but not timed day spaces with holidays printed on the days:
The weekly pages go from the beginning of July 2012 all the way through the end of December 2013.

At the end of the weekly pages there is a forward planner for 2014:

There are monthly account pages:

And an accounts summary page, and several pages for notes:
The last page of the book is for frequently used numbers, for easy reference

Inside the back cover of the book there is a year overview planner for the 2013-2014 academic year:


The book is very professional looking. There is a real ribbon page marker to mark the current week.

This planner I've shown is the 35M, which has a new look according to the website. Click here for this product's page.  I don't know if the image shown on the website is the actual cover or a removable label page.

Thanks again to Collins!
