Search engine tips for book authors
It's all about getting your book found!
Final check & submission
Before submission, all parts of the book should be checked.
- Check the table of contents to ensure that part, chapter and heading numbering are in the correct sequence, and update the chapter titles and subheadings if necessary.
- Save each chapter or contribution, including the accompanying references, figure legends, and tables in a separate file in the original file format and give each file your name and the chapter number (e.g. Myers-Chap1).
- Save the original figure files separately and name them with your name, the chapter, and figure number (e.g. Myers-Fig1.1).
- Ensure the text and figures of your manuscript are complete and final, and that the manuscript does not exceed the agreed-upon length.
- Please ensure all third-party permissions have been obtained.
- For contributed volumes, ensure that all authors have signed their Consent to Publish form. Attach all forms in a separate folder.
Submit your manuscript directly using our online book manuscript submission portal or via FTP. Please contact your publishing editor for your access details.
Your submission should include:
- Original source files (Word, LaTeX)
- A PDF file of your manuscript with all fonts embedded that can be used as a reference. This is especially important if the text or figures contain special characters or unusual fonts. Please check the PDF to ensure that the text appears as it should.
