PUBLISHING PROCESS STEPS AND DESCRIPTIONS

Proposal Submission

The author is required to submit the completed publishing proposal form to InTechOpen.

The purpose of this form is to provide us with a general idea of your publishing proposal. The author receives a decision notice or a request for further information within 10-30 working days of the proposal submission.

Manuscript Submission

If the publishing proposal receives a positive review, the author is invited to submit the full manuscript (130 - 500 pages long) following the publisher's Author Guidelines (a guide to preparing the manuscript for submission). Each submitted manuscript undergoes a plagiarism check and enters the review process afterwards.

Peer Review

Referees are external collaborators who agreed to contribute their own expertise in reviewing the submitted manuscript, independently and on a voluntary basis.

Definite Acceptance

If the manuscript is formally accepted after review, the author is informed about this decision, the subsequent manuscript processing requirements and fees, and the date when the typeset manuscript is expected to be sent to the author for typeset proofing and his approval.

Price Quotation

The final price quotation depends on various parameters, including:

  • Basic Fee*
  • Technical Requirements
  • Publication Timeframe
  • Print and Delivery (if applicable)
  • * The final price depends on the volume of the publication and includes: project management, editorial and review services, technical editing, language copyediting, cover design and book layout, book promotion and ISBN assignment and the delivery of hard copies of the book. For a detailed price quote contact book.department@intechopen.com.

Preparation of the Required Documentation

The publisher sends an offer — based on agreed upon terms related to the subject of the book, target audience, number of pages, price, number and format of printed books, and delivery conditions — to the author. After the offer has been accepted by both the author and the publisher, both parties sign a Statement of Work binding them to adhere to the agreed upon terms.

Copyright

The author is asked to accept the Copyright Agreement.

Language Copyediting

All submitted manuscripts are sent to Language Copyediting.

Technical Editing

The manuscript is typeset and marked up in XML, and is available online in HTML and PDF format. First typeset version of the manuscript is usually supplied 10 days upon its original submission.

Typeset Proof Cycles & Cover Design

Duration of typesetting cycles depends on the time required for the author to propose corrections and ultimately approve a typeset version of the manuscript. At this stage the author is required to provide a short summary of his book (up to 150 words), and a high resolution (300 DPI or more) face or chest-up portrait photograph of himself (in jpeg. file format). These are required for book cover design.

Invoice Payment

The invoice is generally paid by the author, the author’s institution or funder. The payment can be made by credit card from your Author Panel Page (one will be assigned to you at the beginning of the project), or via bank transfer as indicated on the invoice. We currently accept the following payment options:

  • Credit Card
  • PayPal
  • Bank Transfer

Online Publishing, Print & Delivery of the book

The books are published online at www.intechopen.com. Print copies are delivered by DHL within 12-15 work days.

Send your Proposal

Please fill out the publishing proposal form. The completed form should serve as an overview of your future InTechOpen Monograph or Edited Book project. Once submitted, your publishing proposal will be sent for evaluation, and a notice of acceptance or rejection will be sent within 10 to 30 working days from the date of submission.
