Production Control

I am well-versed in every stage of book production, from the initial proposal through typesetting and printing to marketing and distribution. I have been involved with complex, multi-author projects on behalf of the Royal Society of Edinburgh, Elsevier and Mercat Press, among others. I am thoroughly familiar with the process of research, author recruitment and business planning for new projects, and have a good working knowledge of writing and editing successful proposals, making accurate budget calculations and cost control.

As a production editor, I am involved with a number of academic journals, and I am responsible for all aspects of production. My duties include copy-editing, layout, proof-reading and making up issues. I am wholly responsible for the journals from the receipt of copy through typesetting and printing until the bulk is delivered to the central warehouse. I liaise closely with authors, editors, suppliers, and my client’s advertising and publicity departments.
