Are you interested in publishing an E-Book? Or a Journal of some sort? Here at KIC, we can help you with designing and layout of your documents, Printing Project-Management, Registration of ISBN-ISSN Numbers, Brand Design (logos, stationary, corporate imagining, brand manual) as well as Proofreading and editing.
Here at KIC, we can guarantee that you meet your publishing deadline by managing the entire book or journal production cycle for you. Our project managers can handle all phone and email communication with your authors; manage articles for a journal issue or a major reference work; collate proofs; and work with freelancers, printers, and any other external parties.
Rigorous recruitment methods mean that only those with the requisite industry experience, co-ordination and communication skills qualify for a project management role with MPS. All new recruits undergo hands-on training to familiarize them with our processes and those of our clients. Continuous support and mentoring by senior project managers helps new project managers further develop their skills to the high levels expected at MPS. As a result, our project managers have a reputation for being excellent communicators, highly organized and always punctual.
Journal and issue publications
KIC can also handle your journal articles right from the moment your editors approve an article for publication. We are experienced in working with large online manuscript sites such as Manuscript Central to validate and collect an article after peer review and upload it to your own content management system (CMS). We work with your CMS as we guide the article through the editing and production process, keeping your production editors constantly updated on the article’s progress. Our team handles all author communication and master-copy or proof collation, and once the article is completed we can also publish it online for you. The project manager can also take care of the running order of each issue based on your annual schedule, making sure to balance the mixture of articles in the issue before sending it to the production editor and the printer.
Completing that vital book project
KIC offers both partial and full-service project management for book and major reference work (MRW) projects. Both types of project managers handle your book at all stages of the production process, but our full-service option offers you additional support by taking on all communication and co-ordination with your books’ authors and editors. Each title is assigned to a single project manager to simplify co-ordination and communication. Our project managers are proactive, calling or emailing you or your authors whenever questions arise and working with you to resolve each query and issue. They have sufficient technical and production knowledge to address routine queries and, where needed, co-ordinate internally to find the solution.
KIC also offers both onshore and offshore copyediting, proofreading, and indexing services, as well as a hybrid model that combines the best of onshore capabilities with the advantages of an India-based process. Our editorial team has varied specializations and skills designed to meet the disparate needs of our customers, from Spanish-language journal editing to editorial proofreading for school books.
