Resources and links for authors
On this page you will find a number of links to help you. The Book Proposal Form is the first step in the publishing process. Do fill this in with as much detail as possible, as this will help us to assess the project quickly. Your proposal will be sent to one or more independent reviewers for comment and help with developing the project.
At contract, we will send you our Author Guidelines which give advice on style and preparation of your manuscript. All through the writing process we will be available to help with your questions, such as “Are my diagrams and figures suitable for publication?” or “What do I do about copyright permissions?”
When the final manuscript comes in, production starts in earnest and you can relax (but only for a short period) while the copyediting and typesetting goes on. This is the time, however, when we start to consider the marketing in more detail and get news of the book out in advance of publication. We work very closely with authors so that we can reach the most interested groups of readers and focus our marketing effort effectively.
