Author resources

A collection of useful guides and resources for authors throughout the publication process


This page provides guidelines and resources for you as an author. It covers:

• what you need to do as an author;
• what happens when your manuscript goes into production; and
• keeping in touch.

What you need to do as an author

There are a number of tasks that you will need to carry out as an author before you send us your finished manuscript. To ensure that the process goes smoothly, please download the author pack.

This pack includes the IET style guide, a checklist and a selection of other files that you might need while preparing and finalising your manuscript

What happens when your manuscript goes into production?

The Editorial process flowchart, which can be found in the author pack, sets out what happens after your manuscript has been received by us, and at what points we will need to contact you.

Keeping in touch

We want to help you as much as we can throughout the process, so please keep in touch, especially if you have any questions or concerns about your project or the publishing process.

It is also important that you keep in touch with us even after publication, so that we can continue to correctly pay your royalties. Please inform us immediately of any changes to your bank details or your email address.
