India Full Service
Our India Direct Full Service for books, journals, white papers, and similar publications is an attractive product for publishers seeking high-quality editorial and composition services at the most cost-effective price point possible.
Our India Direct Full Service offers these key advantages and features:
- All of our India-based project managers and copyeditors are employees of Westchester Publishing Services; we do not outsource this work
- UK and US copyediting, proofreading and indexing are available as part of the India Direct Full Service
- A manuscript pre-edit to add style tags with your tag set or Westchester’s tag set is included
- Reasonable corrections/AAs are included in the page price
- Art adjustments and design services also available
- Access to a US- or UK-based project resolution representative for resolution of urgent project matters
- We offer very appealing discounts with annual volume commitments on India Direct Full Service.
We also have an India Direct composition option for those projects where composition/typesetting is all you need.
Each new Academic or Trade project received by Westchester Publishing Services is assigned to one of our experienced Project Managers (PM); either in the UK or India, depending on which project management model the client publisher selects.
The PM handles all communications with the publisher contact, freelancers, and our composition/typesetting units. The PM can also liaise with the author too, if the publisher indicates that preference. The PM is responsible for all stages of production and for maintaining the schedule.
In addition, the PM is responsible for reviewing the copyedited manuscript, ascertaining that specifications are complete, and selecting the proper copyeditors, proofreaders, and indexers for the project; working with the author too, if appropriate.
The PM also works directly with the designer and with the art programme.
