Our Editorial Services can help you achieve editorial excellence, enabling you to stand out and succeed in your publishing goals. We are experts in the business of publishing content and have perfected the art and science of editorial nuances that meet the needs of publishers and authors looking for the highest quality and quick turnaround times. Machine learning underlies our editorial processes – thus ensuring high quality results and the capability to evolve constantly.
We help turn your good book into a great book through workflow-driven, collaborative, and comprehensive copyediting services. We prioritize retaining the author’s voice and understanding the context through direct interactions with authors. Machine learning-driven examination of the text for flow, grammar, errors, repetitions, style mismatch, or other inconsistencies ensures a fine copy. The checks provided include:
- Spelling, including UK and US English
- Grammar, including rephrasing sentences
- References and footnotes for the style of the publishing, technical accuracy, and placement of citations
- Appropriate and consistent captioning for figures and tables
- Mathematical equations for subscripts, superscripts, exponents, and symbols
Proofreading is perhaps the most important step in producing a ready-for-publication book or journal. Our highly proficient team ensures that this crucial check of the copyedited text produces consistent output, complies with the publisher’s house style, and meets the highest standards.
Besides checking for typical errors in style, fonts, capitalization, italicization, hyphenation, and correct usage of symbols (for example, in equations), we also ensure consistency of typefaces and hierarchies. Be it journal articles, books, PhD theses, dissertations, or proposals in the STM field – we proofread and produce polished content.
An index is not a collection of mere keywords or phrases but an organized map of contents, including cross-references, the grouping of like concepts, and other useful information for intellectual analysis (especially for non-trade publications). The absence of it may make even great subject content go unnoticed by the reader. Our professional indexers ensure your content is indexed comprehensively with related concepts in different sections of the book being cross-referenced or grouped. We can create simple, keyword-based, flat (single-level) author and subject indexes to complex, topical, multi-level indexes for content-intensive books or other publications that increase the value of your publication manifold.
We also partner with Technica Editorial Services to offer onshore editorial services.

End-To-End Project Management
Our Project Management services enable authors and publishers to reap the benefits of our global best practices, proven technologies, skilled professionals, and faster turnaround times.
We manage the end-to-end production of books and journals for print and digital media (multiple online and mobile formats). We partner with authors and publishers and take complete ownership to ensure that their raw manuscripts are turned into finely-polished, ready-for-publication content. Our comprehensive project management services cover:
- Analyzing and understanding the needs of publishers
- Working together with publishers, editors, and proofreaders
- Interacting directly with authors for query resolutions, seeking
- copyright permissions for material (figures, tables, text) being reproduced from other published sources), etc.
- Managing all stages of the publication’s digital content production
lifecycle, from copyediting, proofreading, typesetting, and the consolidation of revisions received from authors, editors, and proofreaders into a common “master proof” to the generation of the final electronic file
- Tracking, reporting, communication, schedule management, and efficient resource management
The complete project lifecycle from manuscript to the final book or journal is workflow-based (with distinct workflows for books and journals), ensuring efficient turnaround time and cost-effectiveness.

Our Accessibility Services enable publishers to expand the reach of content. We adhere to best practices to ensure the accessibility of book and journal content.
Alt text and long description writing
Alternative text, or “alt text”, is a brief written description of an image that helps screen-reading tools describe the image to users. Alt text is also used in place of an image on a webpage if it fails to load on a user’s screen. It also has the added benefit of allowing search engines to better parse and rank a website in search results.
In cases where complex images are used, a more descriptive text called a “long description” is needed to better describe the content in the image. Complex images typically tend to contain information that cannot be conveyed in a short paragraph or phrase.
Making images accessible with alt text and long descriptions benefits a variety of users, including those with vision and cognitive impairments, a slow connection, or those who are unable to focus on a screen because they are engaged in an activity like driving.
We create alt text and long descriptions for a variety of images, including logos, photos, unnumbered and numbered figures, and more.
Visual abstracts help readers quickly glean the core message of an article. Designed to be simple and visually appealing, these tools help widen access to research audiences across disciplines and beyond the scholarly community. Furthermore, as visual abstracts are much faster to consume than textual content, they enable readers to consume more research in a shorter frame of time.
We provide visual abstract design services for journal publishers. We follow a set of best-practice guidelines while designing visual abstracts. These guidelines enable the generation of consistent, high quality outputs. We are well-versed in tools such as Microsoft Excel and Tableau as well as R programming.
“We think you and your team are doing a great job. Files are delivered quickly without errors, and your communication is clear and timely. It’s a pleasure working with you!”

Our Data Services help publishers go digital. Backed by over 17 years of experience, our data conversion services enable you to not only create new publications but also migrate your existing print versions to multiple digital formats. We can be your single point of contact and ensure successful content conversions from various data sources in any typeset format you need without compromising quality.
Our typesetting and page composition services are based on an XML-first workflow that preserves the integrity of the XML file throughout the various stages of the production cycle, ensuring that the XML file is compliant with the publisher’s DTD at any stage. This means that the XML can be generated on demand.
Our end-to-end page composition services catering to books and STM journals range from simple text pages to those containing complex mathematical equations, single column to multi-column, and single-colored to multi-colored presentations. We are well-versed in 3B2, InDesign, LaTeX, QuarkXPress, and XSL-FO.

Our innovative, systematic, and best-practice-based data capture, archival imaging, metadata creation, DTD/Schema development to XML transformation mean our data conversion services are of high standards and delivered on time while meeting all your unique requirements.
