​Book Editing

Publishing a scholarly book is a major marker in the career of an academic researcher. Whether an edited volume or a monograph of one’s own work, such a document requires the management of quality and time. A dedicated substantive editor can assist with the attention to detail that you need during the constrained period to publication.
