From contents to form: The Production Team

The Production Department is the linking element between the manuscript (and the Managing Editors) and the final finished product that is ready for the market. Specific tasks include the creation of a user-friendly design for the books and journals, making technical ideas feasible, and when necessary the selection of appropriate materials. This department works in close collaboration with the suppliers as the products proceed through the varying stages, from the first layout and image processing, the final design-layout of each page, and up through the printing, binding and delivery. Naturally, there is also constant monitoring of quality, time-plans, and costs. The Production Department ensures that the books and journals are in optimal form for this part of the journey.
