Personalized Service

Publish Brochure

We know that juggling the responsibilities of research, writing, and teaching can be difficult. That is why we strive to make our collaborations as easy as possible. Support is offered from the moment that a proposal is submitted, with our Acquisitions Department prepared to answer any questions that a potential editor might have regarding the proposal review process. Once a proposal is accepted, editors and authors are paired with an in-house development contact here at IGI Global. These contacts will provide timely answers to questions, ensure that deadlines are met hassle-free, and facilitate a smooth transition from manuscript to publication.

Quick Turnaround

We have built a name for quality, cutting-edge research. However, we also understand the value of time, and how much time needs to be dedicated to a project from beginning to end. With our top of the line production system, and 100% in-house staff, we are able to cut downtime, which means that a manuscript can be moved to print in a matter of months. While this might sound daunting, we offer varied timeline options in order to ensure the success of book and journal projects. We’re happy to work out a plan that meets your needs!

eEditorial Discovery®

IGI Global’s expedited publishing process and strict double-blind peer review process are possible due to its partnership with eEditorial Discovery®, an online submission manager that allows each phase of a project to be uploaded and monitored by the editor(s) and contributors. Contributors upload their submissions to the necessary book or journal project where the editor can assign reviewers, request revisions, make editorial decisions, and select submissions for their final publication. eEditorial Discovery® assists all individuals during the publication process to ensure a smooth transition through each phase.

Quality and Ethics

Our philosophy from day one has been, and will continue to be, publishing content based on the innovative nature and quality presented in the work as opposed to focusing purely on profitability. IGI Global affirms that ethical publication practices are critical to the successful development of knowledge. Therefore, it is the policy of IGI Global to maintain high ethical standards in all publications. These standards pertain to all books, journals, chapters, and articles accepted for publication. Each authored and edited publication undergoes a rigorous double-blind peer review. IGI Global, nor the editors leading book and journal publications, will accept any form of monetary remuneration or publication bribery for the acceptance or expediting of submitted work. The only processing fees that would ever be charged by IGI Global would be for Open Access submissions in the form of Article Processing Charges (APCs), and the payment in those instances would not be requested until after the article manuscript has undergone the double-blind peer review and been accepted for publication. Due to our strict adherence to ethical publishing, we are a recognized member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).

Additionally, IGI Global is fully integrated with ORCID. When publishing a book, journal, chapter, article, or conducting review activities for journals, we will collect the author, editor, or reviewer's ORCID iD to verify their identity and tie the published work or journal manuscript review to their name. To ensure a streamlined and easy-to-use process, authentication is provided within IGI Global’s submission system, the eEditorial Discovery® System, and also in the IGI Global Online Bookstore. Plus, the unique iD will be displayed next to the individual's name in print and electronic publications.

Also, in order to support our international contributors and mitigate any potential language barriers, IGI Global offers a variety of editorial services, including high-quality English language copy editing which optimizes the readability of manuscripts to ensure their content is communicated clearly and accurately. Through the English language copy editing service, authors can benefit from rapid turnaround, affordability (at a third of the cost of other providers), and the receipt of a certificate upon job completion certifying the services that have been applied to their manuscript.

Open Access and Fair Use

All of our scholarly journals publish under a hybrid open access model which allows the author to choose whether to publish their article manuscript as open access or as standard subscription-based access. If the author opts to publish the article as open access, the author or funding body pays an article processing charge (APC) (once the article has been accepted following the peer review) in order to make the article freely available online (while also included as part of a subscription-based journal issue). With this option, the published article is immediately made freely available without any embargo. Additionally, we just recently launched a new open access fee waiver initiative where for any library that invests in IGI Global's InfoSci-Journals or InfoSci-Books databases, IGI Global will match their library’s investment with a fund of equal value to go toward subsidizing the OA article processing charges (APCs) for their students, faculty, and staff at their institution when their work is submitted and accepted (following a peer review) under OA into an IGI Global journal.

For individuals publishing under the traditional publishing method, IGI Global provides an industry standard and supportive Fair Use Policy (Green Open Access).

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we understand that certain exceptions may need to be made in order to make IGI Global published content more easily accessible for teaching and learning purposes. Please contact our Intellectual Property and Contracts Department at if there are any special requirements you must fulfill with your IGI Global published content.

International Focus

As an international scholarly publisher, we maintain a global commitment to progressing innovation and the availability of knowledge resources for academicians, independent researchers, industry practitioners and professionals worldwide. Each of our book, journal, and video contributors benefit from the expansion of their professional and academic networks by partnering with individuals from across the globe to make each and every publication a success.
