Are you ready to share your research with the world?

Personalized Service

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. 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. It might sound daunting, but don’t worry, 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. 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.

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.
