How can I publish a book at Renaşterea Publishing House? What do I need to know? 7 steps to follow
Renaşterea Publishing House receives, as publication proposals, various manuscripts made available to publishers by the authors. It is the result of scientific work and creative effort, which can influence the reputation and later the scientific career of these authors. Therefore, publishers respect this work and treat each work confidentially.
The process of publishing a book at Renaşterea Publishing House includes 7 steps:
1. A first step in evaluating the paper consists in assessing the conformity of the paper's theme with the profile of the Renaşterea Publishing House. If the topic or content of the paper disagrees with the publisher's profile, the paper is rejected by the publishers. If, on the contrary, the topic, respectively the content of the paper are in accordance with the profile of the publishing house, we move on to the next step, which consists in sending the manuscript to the readers. The information regarding the manuscript (respectively when it was received, what it contains, the way the evaluation takes place) is not disclosed by the publishers, but communicated only to the authors, respectively to the readers. There is this relationship of confidentiality between publishers and readers, but also the certainty that the manuscript is the intellectual property of the author. Therefore, in the process of evaluating a manuscript, neither the publishers nor the readers keep copies of the manuscript.
2. The paper is sent by the author to the director of the publishing house, in electronic format but also in a copy listed on the printer. The scientific council of the publishing house will be notified by the director about the publication proposal, a council that will appoint two scientific readers for the evaluation of the works.
3. The director of the publishing house will send the paper by e-mail, in electronic format, to the two scientific readers. They will draw up evaluation reports according to a model received by e-mail from the publishing house's director. The two readers will evaluate the work, each individually, without knowing the identity of the other reader.
4. Each of the two readers will send an e-mail to the publishing house with a report on the scientific quality of the work and, where appropriate, they will make recommendations.
5. The director, or, when appropriate, the book editor appointed by the director, will receive the two papers and, if favorable, will proceed with the rest of the editing process, and if there are recommendations, the editor will consult with the author and, possibly, the readers. The readers remain anonymous.
6. If both papers are negative, the paper will be rejected. If only one paper is negative, another paper from a third reader is requested. If it is also negative, the paper is rejected. If it is positive, the paper will be accepted for publication, possibly intervening where recommendations have been made. There are therefore three variants: accepted work, accepted work with modifications or rejected work.
7. The evaluation form of the manuscript will contain the title of the paper, a short description of the paper, estimations related to its relevance in the field, originality or other aspects, as well as rates on the scientific aspects of the paper (methodology, critical apparatus, bibliography, etc.).
