Production Guide

Whichever route we take in producing your book, your manuscript is the key component. The better your manuscript is prepared, the quicker we can produce the book.

We can only accept manuscripts that are final and complete. We will not begin any production work if there are still files outstanding, such as figures, a preface, references, and so on.

The length of time taken to produce your book will vary according to how well it has been prepared, which workflow we use, and how long the book is.

On average, it can take 7 to 10 months from receipt of your manuscript to printing the book. The production schedule is set by the Production Editor once the manuscript has been passed over to the production team.
