That’s why IGI Global is here to support your efforts. Experienced editors will work with you every step of the way to guarantee the finished product represents your hard work and dedication.

Our Acquisitions editors help you form solid plans for new books by examining publication platforms, topic coverage, and concept organization. To be considered for publication, we ask that you submit a proposal form outlining the details of your idea. We take great pride in our top-quality original content, and your proposal will undergo several assessments to determine suitability, marketability, and interest. For more information, contact, or submit a proposal to get started!


If your proposal is accepted, and following your agreement to a formal contract, our Development team will help you refine and enhance your manuscript. By providing key resources and advice, we ensure formatting standards are met and project deadlines are achieved. We also maintain a suite of development resources on our website designed to simplify collaboration between you and your contributors. These resources act as a centralized reference point so authors and editors will always be on the same page. For more information about how our development team can assist you, contact for books, for journals, or browse our development resources.


After we receive your final manuscript submission, the Production team will get to work creating your bound and printed book or journal. Unlike most academic publishers, we handle our production operations 100% in-house. By keeping everything under one roof, we gain greater control over the quality of our product and can ensure that your research hits the market quickly and without error.


With a blended, direct-marketing strategy, our Marketing team gives your research maximum exposure to our wide and growing global audience. Your publication will be announced to our booksellers and wholesalers worldwide including our list of electronic content vendors. By the time your manuscript goes to print, it will have been featured in various newsletters, catalogs, and listservs. We're also happy to provide promotional material to help contributors showcase their work at conferences and expos.
