Resources for book authors and editors


Whilst Intellect’s vision is focused on the author rather than the commercial market, we maintain a rigorous vetting procedure at the beginning of production to ensure that the publication is of high academic value. All our titles must receive a positive peer review, guaranteeing a high calibre of material and ensuring that the publications are brought to their full potential. Our published material also undergoes careful copy-editing, sophisticated design and layout, and comprehensive distribution and marketing strategies.
