Publishing Services for University Presses and Commercial Publishing Houses

eContent Pro supports university presses and commercial publishing houses seeking to outsource their publishing needs for their authored scholarly monographs, edited scholarly monographs, journals, or any other publications. eContent Pro can outsource full publishing services including a rigorous review process or simply providing production and printing services as well as marketing and distribution if necessary. eContent Pro understands that each university press or commercial publishing house has their own review process and may not need our full publishing services to be outsourced. Therefore, eContent Pro provides flexible service offerings and prices to publishers to choose which services in the publishing process they need outsourced.

Publishing Fees

As with any peer-reviewed publication, activities such as a robust evaluation process, copy editing/proofreading as well as the typesetting, electronic file preparation, printing, online hosting, promotion and distribution of the final contents requires certain human labor and technology support.

As such, in order to support these resources, eContent Pro requires certain publishing fees to be covered by the university press or publishing house which can either be paid upfront or in separate installments as the publication moves through each stage of the development process. For authored monographs receiving our full publishing services, at least one payment installment must be made before the book or journal can proceed into evaluation (if the book or journal for any reason is canceled, the unused funds will be returned to the publisher).

Please note that eContent Pro reserves the right to cancel the publishing agreement at any time. Any relevant unused publishing fees collected at the point of cancellation will be returned to the publisher.
