'Five stars! I find the publication processes at Intellect always thorough and efficient. The support and belief in the need for the Journal of Applied Arts & Health was there from the very beginning of my idea and the staff ensured the venture began well informed and fit for purpose. More recently as a book author with Intellect I have encountered the same reliable and professional partnership. It is a real pleasure to work with a publisher that champions original thought in this way.' - Ross W. Prior, Author of Teaching Actors and Founding Editor, Journal of Applied Arts & Health.
‘Intellect publishing offers a platform for new and original ideas in the field of arts and humanities; it provides a home for academics who are looking to independent and forward-thinking publishers whose principal criterion is not 'will it sell?' They have grown and developed over the past two decades to be one of the foremost publishers in, amongst other areas, arts, education and media. Intellect provides a first-rate service to both authors and readers, treating both with respect and with a rare concern for quality and integrity.’ – Richard Hickman, University of Cambridge, Author of Research in Art & Design Education
‘As an editor, what I like best about Intellect is the combination of genuine concern, constructive advice, and unequivocal respect for the editors’ ultimate choices. The people at Intellect are pros at what they do, which allows us as editors to focus on our job – finding the best texts.’ – Daniel Lindvall, Editor of Film International
‘Working with Intellect is a real partnership. Their editorial staff are open, creative, and responsive. This is the first academic journal I have edited, and I found their advice and guidance invaluable.’ – Tim Wall, Editor of The Radio Journal
‘Independent publishers are the lifeblood of adventurous enquiry at a time when the wildness of theatre is being tamed towards scholarly orthodoxy. If Intellect were not prepared to take risks - with pantomime, neglected Polish playwrights, dark arts, sacred theatre and so on - we would be missing out on some fine books.’ – Peter Thompson, Founding Editor of Studies in Theatre & Performance
‘Intellect Books has made its name in the field of media studies, with a range of publications designed to appeal to teachers and students in the academic field, on the one hand, and to broadcasting managers, policy-makers and practitioners, on the other. As a publisher, it shows enthusiasm for original work and commitment to its authors.’ – Michael Starks, University of Oxford, Author of Switching to Digital Television and Editor of the International Journal of Digital Television
‘I have enjoyed working with designated staff at Intellect on producing the International Journal for Education through Art over the past three years and found them very helpful. A particular strength for an art journal like this is their willingness to collaborate with editors and experiment with image text formats and advise about their layout and presentation.’ – Rachel Mason, Founding Editor, International Journal of Education Through Art
‘It was great to work with a company that has a love of the subject and was ready to consider a previously unpublished author. From the outset the staff at Intellect were supportive through the whole process from proofing to marketing.’ – Roger Wooster, Author of Contemporary Theatre in Education
‘I first became aware of Intellect Press through advertisements in Sight & Sound magazine which prominently displayed some particularly fine artworks. Covers for titles like Hollywood Utopia and Cinemas of the Other are intelligent, well-chosen designs that are suggestive of texts that offer unique depth and insight in a presently over-crowded academic market. The artworks for new Intellect titles such as Point Blank, Switching to Digital Television and Allegorical Images expertly integrate image with theme in a manner that is at once subtle and distinctly eye-catching.’ – John Berra, Author of Declarations of Independence
‘The process of developing an idea for a new Journal is invigorating and very thorough. The team brings a wideranging knowledge to the entire process, wonderful energy in terms of their creative thinking and suggestions for format, design and editorial processes. Above all I have felt very supported throughout the whole process of proposing and getting a new Journal off the ground!’ – Sarah Whatley, Editor, Journal of Dance & Somatic Practices
‘When the JAMS team approached Intellect they were looking for a professional and experienced publisher. Intellect offered us both and from the start their energetic team was very welcoming and adventurous in using creative and unconventional approaches. They have inspired us to test the limits and to include visual essays, normally absent in more traditional academic journals. Their service can be summed up as fresh, innovative and creative. Intellect has clearly exceeded our expectations’. – Winston Mano, Editor, Journal of African Media Studies
'Jessica, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you personally for your continued support, patience and understanding throughout this entire production. We were extremely fortunate to have been assigned a capable, approachable and accommodating individual such as yourself. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with you on what has certainly been an interesting "journey" for me, and I wish you all the best, as you continue to guide other authors through this amazing process of turning their thoughts and experiences into a reality that can be shared with so many others. It's a shame we never had the opportunity to meet in person'. Stuart McIntosh, Editorial Assistant for Gavin Bolton's Contextual Drama by Margaret R. Burke
'Over the last five years that we have edited the Journal of Curatorial Studies, the Intellect team has demonstrated extraordinary encouragement and support. Every individual – from copyeditors and designers to marketers and managers – has been consistently pleasant, open to dialogue, and constructive when dealing with challenges. Intellect has secured a reputation as a dynamic and creative catalyst for innovative and adventurous scholarship. It is extremely gratifying to contribute to its exciting range of journals and books, and to see new publishing initiatives grow amongst a broad international readership and global distribution network.' Jennifer Fisher and Jim Drobnick
