What it means to be the editor

The quality demonstrated in the more than 3,000 books published by IntechOpen would not be possible without the input of the leading researchers who take on the role of book editors. Each one of our editors is a specialist in their given field, and their engagement makes it possible to reach the high standards required by the scientific community.

  • Greater visibility
  • Editors with IntechOpen will gain access to an audience of 570,000 monthly readers across a variety of scientific fields. As of 2015, almost half of all Open Access titles indexed in the Book Citation Index in the Web of Science™ Core Collection (BKCI) came from our collection.

  • New forms of collaboration
  • In the past, many experts across the breadth of science may have found themselves restricted to the same network of collaborators, without the benefit of fresh voices entering the conversation. Through IntechOpen’s commitment to Open Access, you will have the luxury of expanding your scientific circles in ways that may not have been possible in the past.

  • Our full support
  • You’re not alone as an editor. When you sign up to the role, you will be assigned your own Author Service Manager [ASM] who will handle communication with authors and make the whole process more streamlined from start to finish.

  • Printed books
  • You’ll also receive two print copies of any book you edit, as well as a digital copy. On top of this, editors are entitled to discounts on future purchases of IntechOpen books, even those on which they have had no editorial input.
