Book manuscript guidelines

To guarantee a smooth publication process, it is important that you ensure the text and figures of your manuscript are complete and final when submitted to us. We will then handle all the typesetting and production processes.

In order to help you and to make submitting your book manuscript quick and easy, there are guidelines and 'key style points' (which explain the details of Springer's layout options) and templates. These have been developed and refined with our authors over many years, and we are confident that you will find them easy to use.
