Author Guidelines

The Writer’s Publication serves as an ideal platform for both the established as well as budding authors for getting their books published at an earliest date. Since inception (in 2015) we believe in providing high quality books at reasonable prices. We strongly believe in being in close contact with all our authors on the production, promotion and distribution of their books. Maintaining high academic and production standards is our priority. Manuscripts received would be thoroughly assessed for their viability across the globe. We intend to inform the authors ASAP on the acceptance or rejection of their works. Moreover, ISBN is allotted to all our publications. Our books are at the forefront of knowledge and often break new ground in research. As an independent publisher, we are more willing to take risks by publishing in emerging disciplines.

All Book/Monograph must be typed in A4 size (font size 12) in 1.5 space in Double/single column with at least one inch margin on all sides. Authors should submit single word file that contains the following the entire book with cover page, references, annexure etc.

To guarantee a smooth publication process and a seamless transformation of your manuscript into the final layout and various electronic formats the manuscript needs to be structured as follows:

  1. Front Matter : Title page, Dedication (optional), Foreword (optional), Preface (optional), Table of Contents, List of abbreviations (optional).
  2. Text Body : It comprises the chapters containing the content of the book, i.e., text, figures, tables, and references. Chapters can be grouped together in parts.
  3. Back Matter : After the last chapter, the back matter can contain an appendix, a glossary, and/or an index, all of which are optional.

 

1. Front Matter
The title page and the table of contents precede the actual content of a book.

The preface (optional) should be about the book: why it was written, who it is for, its organization, or the selection of contributors. An introduction to the subject of the book, however, should appear as the first chapter of the book.
Other optional items in the front matter at the beginning of a book are e.g., dedication, a foreword or a list of abbreviations.

 

1.1  Title Page

  • Please include all author names (for contributed books, the editor names) and their affiliations, the book title and subtitle. Ensure that the sequence of the author names is correct and the title of your book is final when you submit your manuscript.
  • Please also supply all the email addresses and telephone numbers and in case of multiple authors or editors, clearly indicate the corresponding author or editor.

 

1.2 Foreword (optional)
If you intend to include a foreword, please submit it with the manuscript.

 

1.3 Preface (optional)

  • A preface should not contain a reference list.
  • An introduction to the subject of the book should not be confused with a preface. The introduction does not belong in the front matter, but should appear as the first chapter of the book.

 

1.4 Table of Contents

  • List all parts, chapters, and back matter material (e.g., an index) in the final sequence.
  • If your chapters are numbered, use Arabic numerals and number the chapters consecutively throughout the book (Chapter 1, Chapter 2, etc.), i.e., do not start anew with each part.
  • If there are parts, use Roman numerals for parts (Part I, Part II, etc.).

 

2. Chapters
Chapters contain the actual content of the book, i.e., text, figures, tables, and references. Chapters can be grouped together in parts; subparts are not possible. Only one chapter (i.e., an introduction) may precede the first part and would be the first chapter.

  • Decide the numbering style for the chapters and apply this style consistently to all chapters: consecutively numbered (monographs or textbooks) or unnumbered (contributed volumes).
  • If an introduction to the subject of the book (historical background, definitions, or methodology) is included, it should appear as the first chapter and thus be included in the chapter numbering. It can contain references, figures, and tables, just as any other chapter.

 

2.1 Chapter Title and Authors

  • For contributed volumes, please include each chapter’s authors’ names (spelled out as they would be cited), affiliations and e-mail addresses and telephone numbers after the chapter title. (The telephone number will not be published but may be needed as contact information during the publishing process.)

 

2.2 Headings and Heading Numbering

  • Heading levels should be clearly identified and each level should be uniquely and consistently formatted and/or numbered.
  • Use the decimal system of numbering if your headings are numbered.
  • Never skip a heading level. The only exceptions are run-in headings which can be used at any hierarchical level.

 

2.3 Footnotes

  • Always use footnotes instead of endnotes and never use footnotes instead of a reference list.
  • Footnotes should not consist of a reference citation. Footnotes should not contain figures, tables and/or the bibliographic details of a reference.

 

2.4 Equations and Program Code

  • In Word, use the Math function of Word 2007 or 2010, MathType, or Microsoft Equation Editor with Word 2003 to create your equations, and insert the graphic into your text file as an object.
  • In LaTeX, use the Math environment to create your equations.

 

2.5 Tables

  • Give each table a caption. Add a reference citation to the table source at the end of the caption, if necessary.
  • Number tables consecutively using the chapter number (e.g. Table 1.1 for the first table in Chap. 1) and ensure that all tables are cited in the text in sequential order. Do not write “the following table”.
  • Use the table function to create and format tables. Do not use the space bar or multiple tabs to separate columns and do not use Excel to create tables as this can cause problems when converting your tables into the typesetting program and other formats.

 

2.6 Figures and Illustrations
2.6.1 Numbering

  • Number the figures chapter-wise using the chapter number (e.g., Fig. 1.1 for the first figure in Chap. 1) and ensure that all figures are cited in the text in sequential order. Do not write “the following figure”.

 

4.4.2 Figure Captions

  • Give each figure a concise caption, describing accurately what the figure depicts. Include the captions at the end of the text file, not in the figure file.
  • Identify all elements found in the figure in the figure caption and use boxes, circles, etc. as coordinate points in graphs instead of color lines.
  • If a figure is reproduced from a previous publication, include the source as the last item in the caption.

 

2.7 Reference List

  • Include a reference list at the end of each chapter so that readers of single chapters of the eBook can make full use of the citations. References at the end of the book cannot be linked to citations in the chapters. Please do not include reference lists at the end of a chapter section, at the end of a book part, in a preface or an appendix.
  • Include all works that are cited in the chapter and that have been published (including on the Internet) or accepted for publication. Personal communications and unpublished works should only be mentioned in the text. Do not use footnotes as a substitute for a reference list.
  • Entries in the list must be listed alphabetically except in the numbered system of sequential citation.

The rules for alphabetization are:
– First, all works by the author alone, ordered chronologically by year of publication.
– Next, all works by the author with a coauthor, ordered alphabetically by coauthor.
– Finally, all works by the author with several coauthors, ordered chronologically by year of publication.

 

3. Back Matter

After the last chapter, the back matter of the book can contain an appendix, a glossary, and/or an index.

  • Do not include a reference list containing the cited literature in the back matter, as references are then not linked to citations in the chapters. Instead, include reference lists at the end of each chapter. A list of further reading may be included in the back matter.

 

3.1 Appendix

  • An appendix cannot include a reference list.

 

3.2 Index (if applicable)

  • If an index is desired, please submit the index entries with the manuscript.

 

Brief Profile of the  Author(s):
Please provide profile of the author(s) in a separate word file of around 10 to 15 lines along with recent passport size photograph(s)

 

4. Final Check and Submission

Check the table of contents for the correct sequence of part, chapter and heading numbering and update the chapter titles and subheadings if necessary.

  • Save each chapter or contribution, including the accompanying references, figure legends, and tables, in a separate file in the original source file format and give each file your name and the chapter number (e.g., Myers-Chap1). Save the original figure files separately and name them with your name, the chapter, and figure number (e.g., Myers-Fig1.1).
  • Ensure the text and figures of your manuscript are complete and final and that you have kept to the agreed-upon length.
