Production Service

The Humanities Publication Service provides a full range of publishing help to scholarly journals and to faculty members with book contracts that call for such things as print-ready files or indexes:

-manuscript evaluation and critique

-substantive editing and copyediting

-source checking

-cover and page designing

-scanning of images or text

-page layout

-proofreading

-indexing

-preparing print-ready files

-working with printers

Student interns will work on your projects first, so that they can practice their publishing skills. Then the director of the service will review and polish their work to ensure that you receive professional service of the highest quality.

Fees

The service is free to faculty members whose colleges support the service (currently the College of Humanities; the College of Family, Home, and Social Sciences; and the Marriot School of Management). Other colleges support their faculty’s use of the service on a case-=by-case basis, so check with your dean about the possibility of such support.

A modest fee is charged to cover the expense of paying student interns and for overhead, such as supplies and photocopying, usually at a rate of $16.50 per hour. There is no charge for the services of the director, whose efforts count as service to the university.
