Publishing for Libraries and Open Access (OA) Organizations
eContent Pro supports libraries and organizations (associations, societies, non-profits, open access (OA) organizations, etc.) seeking publication services for their authored scholarly monographs, edited scholarly monographs, journals, or any other publications. eContent Pro also provides open access (OA) publishing services for any work that is considered under the OA option. eContent Pro understands that libraries and organizations may have their own review process and may not need our full publishing services to be outsourced. Therefore, eContent Pro provides flexible service offerings and prices to organizations to choose which services in the publishing process they need outsourced.

As with any peer-reviewed publication, activities such as a robust evaluation process, copy editing/proofreading as well as the typesetting, electronic file preparation, online hosting, promotion and distribution of the final contents requires certain human labor and technology support. When work is published under open access, there are no paywalls associated with the access of the content that are offsetting these costs and as such a publishing fee is issued in order to support the publisher’s cost to produce the work. The publishing fee can be paid by either the organization, the author(s)/editor(s), or a funding body.
eContent Pro offers the option for the organization, the authors/editors, or their funding body to either pay the entire publishing fee upfront or in separate installments as the publication moves through each stage of the development process. For authored monographs, at least one payment installment must be made before the book can proceed into evaluation (if the book for any reason is canceled, the unused funds will be returned to the author).
Please note that for both authored and edited monographs, eContent Pro reserves the right to cancel the publishing agreement at any time. Any relevant unused publishing fees collected at the point of cancellation will be returned to the organization, the author(s)/editor(s), or the funding body.
eContent Pro has the capabilities of supporting full manuscript development for any type of publication through the eEditorial Discovery® (eED) Manuscript Submission System. Through the eED Manuscript Submission system, we will support your publication’s call for chapters and review process.
