Edit a Book

To make it easy for researchers who are finding it difficult to keep up with the information onslaught, we are planning to bring out a series of review books in all areas of Science, Technology, Management, Arts and Medicine. Towards this endeavour, we invite your participation as an Editor of a Review Book, or a Monograph or an Online Book either alone or with colleagues as co-editors and/or co-authors in any aspect or topic of your choice. You have the full freedom to decide on the topic, co-authors, participants and even the time-frame of the book. This means that you will be Chief Editor and the guiding, editing and stewardship of the entire volume will be in your hands. You may-if you so wish-invite a very senior scientist from your own department or outside, to act as your Editorial Consultant to guide and help you.

Guidelines for Editing a Book:

  1. You and your team are free to select the AREA, TOPICS and TITLE of the book.

  2. You and your team may contact different contributing scientists-OR- if you provide us with a list of scientists and their addresses with e-mail IDs, we will mail to them invitations for contributions on your behalf.

  3. They could be exclusively from your lab, country or anywhere in the world.

  4. The articles in the final form should be mailed to us.

  5. There should be a minimum of 6 articles or 80-100 pages. There is no limit to the maximum number of articles or pages.

  6. There has to be a time limit i.e. the articles should be ready by say 8-10 months or a specific month/cut-off date YOU deem fit.

  7. We will send you 8 free copies of the book.

  8. We will mail books free of cost to 3 people or institutions of your choice at the addresses provided by you.

  9. We will send to all major laboratories of the world, the name of the book, the editor, titles of articles with the authors & addresses through our formal individual Global Title Mailing Program.

  10. The title of the book, the name of the Consultant Editor, names of Editors(s), and titles of articles with the names of authors will be hosted in our website- www.ressign.com.

  11. We will mail the Table of Contents and titles of the book to individual scientists and researchers through our electronic web brochure. Over 3000 individual e-mail alerts will be sent to researchers interested in this work.

  12. CHARGES: There will be no page charges for the manuscripts to be published. But the economic viability in the initial stages will be maintained by the editor/authors or by their institutions. This is by our requesting ONE of the authors of EACH article/chapter to purchase 100 reprints. The costs of reprints are given at: www.ressign.com/ROF.pdf. The paying author will be sent 100 reprints and 3 hard-bound books by registered air-mail. The authors will be benefited by:

    1. World wide exposure to the book through our website
    2. Wide publicity to articles published through our Global Title Mailing Program

    3. Web book and brochures

    4. E-Mail alerts

    5. A multi-coloured brochure in PDF will be sent to the Editor and all principal authors, which they can circulate among colleagues, other researchers and libraries.


  13. The length of the review article may be limited to 20-25 A4 size pages (20cms. width x 26cms. height), 1.5 line spacing, in 12 point size Times New Roman font, though this is not binding.
If you welcome our ideas, you may kindly write to us suggesting a tentative title of the book/Monograph/Conference Proceedings or e-Book, and a probable deadline of submission of manuscripts (you may take your time). Kindly fax, air-mail or e-mail your reply at an early date. Details like our current titles, Guide to Authors etc. are given in our websites: www.ressign.com and www.trnres.com.
