What happens once I’ve finished my manuscript?
Once you’re satisfied that your manuscript is complete and needs no further changes, get in touch and we’ll tell you how to send it on. Your manuscript must be split up as one file per chapter, with separate files for each figure. Our style guide sets out all the details.
We’ll then thoroughly copy-edit and type-set it, so there’s no need to send us a camera-ready copy.
After this, you’ll be sent a copy of the proofs for final review. Corrections at this stage will be minor typographic adjustments only.
After final corrections, the book files are sent to the printers, and the eBook is created and uploaded to our Digital Library.
Production time is usually between five and seven months, but this varies for each project. You can expect proofs within three to five months of manuscript handover.
