Publishing Process Steps

Manuscript Submission

The author/authors submit the manuscript to InTech. The manuscript can be 80 to 500 pages long.

Review

The manuscript is reviewed by multiple external referees. All submitted manuscripts undergo plagiarism checks.

Definite Acceptance

Only upon receiving the manuscript, a plagiarism check is carried out and after the first scan by the Technical Editor (who determines all the technical requirements and time needed for formatting), the author is informed of the definite decision, financial requirements, and the time frame for receiving the first formatted version to be reviewed.

Price Set Up

The price is set up based on different parameters, which include:

The Offer includes key information about the topic, target audience, number of pages, price, number and format of printed books, delivery conditions. After the Offer has been accepted by both parties (author and publisher), the publisher will send the author a “Statement of Work”. The document is a contract binding the parties to adhere to the terms agreed.

Are your papers peer-reviewed?

All manuscripts submitted to our journals undergo double blind peer review. In book publishing we employ an editorial review. This includes the initial selection of invited authors, chapter proposals screening and an in-depth review of full chapters.

Do you offer proofreading services?

We do insist that all papers are written in academic discourse and are on a satisfactory language level. Because our authors belong to a wide international network of scientists, we have arranged a proofreading service at a reasonable price. Should you have such requirements, simply ask your Publishing Process Manager.

The above mentioned proof reading services are included in our journals' publishing process and do not require any additional fees.

How else can I contribute?

You can contribute by becoming an Editor or a reviewer in our publications. If you are interested in becoming a Book Editor, please visit the Become a Book Editor. Also, you can contribute by promoting free access to knowledge and the Open Access community by linking from your website or recommending us to your fellow researchers and authors.

Why should I pay the Article Processing Charge (APC)?

InTech books and journals are published in the open access model, which means they are free to be read by anyone, anywhere in the world, and available for download via our reading platform. This model is not without costs and the Article Processing Charge (APC) covers the expenses of your Publishing Process Manager, the technical team, preparation of the book for publication or a journal's article, dissemination of your work, printing and express delivery of one hard copy sent direct to you (book authors and Book Editors), in addition to promoting your work upon publication of the book.

Can I have co-authors in my paper?

Absolutely. Please remember that only one author should be nominated as a single point of contact to avoid problems and errors in communication. Only the corresponding author can access the Author Panel, consult the information therein, sign the Copyright Policy and upload the required files.
