How to publish an ‘edited collection’

The lead writer in any edited collection (of chapters) is known as the ‘book editor’. The book will be registered and catalogued under the name(s) of the book editor.  This person(s) is responsible for orchestrating the book so that the written material is presented in an authentic and cohesive fashion. If you are a book editor, here are a few things you need to be aware of (after Steps 1 to 3 have been completed as per the previous section):

1. It is important that you complete the proof reading (grammar, sytax, spelling, punctuation, etc) of each chapter BEFORE you submit the completed manuscript to your assigned Primrose Hall editor.  During proof reading you need to ensure that each chapter is ready for publication. This means:

a.Decide the order you want each chapter to appear in the book (ie: Chapter 1,2,3 and so on)

b.Write an abstract for each chapter (no more than 80 words) such that it introduces the chapter and cements each chapter into the overall book theme. This needs to appear in italics after the chapter author's name and before the introduction.

c.Ensure the textual font for the book is consistent (we recommend Garamond or New Times Roman, 11ppt, with sub headings Bold 12ppt and main heading bold 36ppt). We recommend that you use the 'select all' function in WORD to make such changes.

d.Write a 200 word ‘Blurb’ for the back cover

NOTE: the formatting of the book for printing is the role of the assigned Primrose Hall Editor. The editor will do a cursory proofread only. 

2. Submit the complete book (as a ZIP file) to your assigned Primrose Hall editor, where each chapter is clearly labelled (Chapter 1, 2, etc) and all supplementary material (dedication, acknowledgements, etc) included as well. It is most helpful to provide a mock-up contents page to guide your assigned Primrose Hall editor.

3. Once material has been forwarded to your book editor, (always via email) you are then responsible for making editorial decisions on behalf of your chapter authors as your Primrose Hall editor works on your book.

4. The publication process follows that as outlined in the previous section.


What is ‘Blind Peer Review’?

Primrose Hall has an academic publishing division. In simple terms we publish works for academics, scholars and researchers. To ensure we publish credible and reliable material it is standard policy to send all academic manuscripts out for blind peer review.

In a peer review process two experts in the associated field are asked to review the manuscript. There are four broad criteria that are examined during this process. These are listed below. Works are judged as being (a) publishable without need for amendments, (b) publishable with amendments or (c) not publishable --rejection. In all cases Primrose Hall publishes under the recommendation of the reviewers. Because the process is ‘blind’, neither the reviewer nor the author are known to each other. Reviewer feedback is provided to the author.

1.Contribution:  The degree to which the paper contributes to the field: the level of accuracy, the robustness and impact of findings / points made.

2.Methodology: The logic and applicability of the methodology applied and its capacity to effectively interrogate data as intended for the conclusions made.

3.Data synthesis, analysis and conclusions: The extent to which the paper uses its data/ sources to present findings, argue its case and logically conclude a series of findings.

4.Technical Strength: High levels of grammar, syntax, spelling, clarity of ideas, overall presentation structure.
