Authors are the lifeblood of book publishing, and DEStech Publications seeks to treat them as mutual collaborators, recognizing that the work of writing and editing deserves continuous support and tangible remuneration. The company offers peer review of all book proposals, pays higher than average royalties coupled in many cases with an advance (prepaid royalty), and provides other avenues of assistance for creators of single-author monographs and edited volumes. DEStech’s highly experienced staff offers support in key areas of manuscript preparation such as redrawing selected figures, tracking down copyright permissions and assembling contributed volumes. Our goal is to enable book and chapter authors to focus on the scientific development of their manuscript, while we handle the quality controls needed to produce an outstanding and successful book, i.e., reviews, copy editing, custom page and cover design and in some cases end-of-book indexing.
With these thoughts in view, we invite scientists and researchers to consider publishing your book with us—whether you have just the rudiments of an idea or a manuscript well underway. Please contact our editorial director, Dr. Joseph Eckenrode at [email protected], who will respond promptly.
