Career skills toolkit part 6 of 7: How to produce and publish a Research Uptake publication Print
Thursday, 13 March 2014 10:50

This section relates to Part 4 ‘How to project manage a ‘Publishing for Research Uptake’ campaign’ but goes a few steps further, giving you a step-by-step breakdown of the practical steps involved in producing and publishing a Research Uptake publication.

Q: Strategy. Tick. Tools. Tick. And…Action! How?

A:   You’ve put your campaign strategy together, conceptualized your publication ‘formula’ within budget parameters, worked out your deadlines and production schedule, been in touch with any editors or designers involved and briefed them accordingly. You’ve got your contributors on board, given them deadlines and reminders and now material is coming in to your inbox. This is action time! There are fairly standard production practices in the publishing industry, but as always, the tools supplied here can be adapted for your own particular purposes.

 

  • Firstly, print out the Production schedule template[as supplied in Section 4]. This spreadsheet tracks this stage of this process, which is called ‘Production’ (i.e. the process of taking raw material (copy and images) and putting them through editorial and design processes to create a work of publishable standard]. The points below simply provide helpful info to support the processes already listed in the ‘Production Schedule template.
  • TIP:
  1. To keep control of the material you’ll be working on start by creating a digital document file for your publication on your computer.
  2. Within that file create sub-files named according to the processes listed on the Production Schedule.
  3. As you get to the different production stages for each piece of content in your publication you can move this document or image material into the file appropriately named for the production stage. Make sure you only have one version of a document or image saved in your production filing system, and ensure that it is always the most current version. Ignore this tip at your peril!

  • Once your contributors submit written content the publication’s editor will do a first round of editing on each piece of content. This is to check (again) that the contribution is written to brief, i.e. has the writer written an appropriate article that follows the formula and style guidelines? Typically the editor will pick up on any problem areas in the article’s ‘raw content’. Some of these will typically be able to be worked on and ‘fixed’ in this round of editing i.e. working on article flow, heading and paragraph style, grammar, spelling, punctuation, introductions, pullquotes, etc. If there are any areas of ambiguity in the actual content of the written submission the editor can get in touch with the writer to ask questions until clarity is achieved.  This can be done via email, telephone or in person.
  • Edited article sent to researcher to approve changes. Once the editor has made this first round of changes, the next step is for him/her to send this first edit back to the researcher-writer. The writer needs to read this carefully to check that the editorial changes have not unintentionally changed the meaning or main thrust of the article, and that the article is in fact a good and clear representation of the researcher/writers intended message. 
  • After the researcher-writer has made any changes, comments or suggestions s/he then sends the edited copy back to the editor. It’s quite possible to do this via email, but it is also sometimes quicker and faster to pick up the phone at this stage. The editor and writer can then talk through the different stages of the article and clear up issues of meaning and editorial ‘translation’.
  • Next, the editor makes the changes agreed on in the previous step to the article/content.
  • He/she can then send copy on to the copy editor for a ‘Sub on word document’. Subbing refers to detailed copyediting. This is when meaning, language, grammar and punctuation are carefully scrutinized and corrected.
  • Your copy editor will use an ‘Editorial Style Sheet’ i.e. a manual detailing the house style of a particular publisher or publication. A good copy editor will be able to work with you and your University Press office to refine an appropriate style sheet for your publication. Consistently applying the rules of the ‘Editorial Style Sheet’ during the copyediting is essential to produce a publication of publishable standard. The APA has a comprehensive style guide, which is ideal for work in the social sciences and sciences.
  • Once copyediting of an article has been completed the document can be sent through to the designer for page layout [or for poster or flyer design if that is what you’re working on.]
  • Behind the scenes you [or your managing editor, or an assigned administrative coordinator] has also been gathering and correctly filing images sent in by contributors, as prescribed by your original brief. When you send your copyedited document through to the designer you will also need to send through the correct supplied images for this article.
  • ·The designer will design the page according to the design mock-up previously decided on. When the layout is done he/she shall send it back to the editor for comment and/or approval.
  • The editor is responsible for the final publication, and so he/she has the right to query design submitted, and to work with the designer to resolve any design issues until these meet with the editor’s requirements.
  • Once final design approval has been given the copy editor needs to work on final copy editing on the layout. The copy editor will be checking major details such as to ensuring that the designer has used the correct and final edit of the copy on the page layout (It has been known for old unedited versions of copy to sneak through to layout stage, which can cause many issues – this step checks this.)
  • The copy editor will also work on fine detail, including double checking all publication style features have been correctly applied. Once s/he is satisfied that all work is sound and of publishable standard s/he will had the layout on for proof reading. Depending on budget this can be done by a professional proof reader (recommended) and/or by circulating this final version in the office/department/group for proof reading. A fresh set of eyes can spot mistakes that have become invisible to those who have been working on a layout for some time.
  • Throughout this process the editor/production manager/designer needs to use the flat plan/pagination supplied to work out the final amount and order of pages for the publication. Use the flatplan to check the pages in the publication are numbered correctly. Tick back and check and double check this detail.
  • Once the editor has signed off the final article edit and layout, the designer will send the article to the printers to be made into a final proof.
  • Once the proof is returned it should be circulated for final final checking (yes, good publishing involves meticulous checking processes!)
  • When you’ve gone through this process with each article layout, every proof is signed off by all readers.
  • When all the signed-off material is in the ‘Print Ready’ folder, the designer is able to make final technical preparations before sending to print.
  • Generally the editor/designer or project manager will check the print quality of a few pages printed by the printer before the go ahead is given to print the whole print run.
  • Depending on your initial brief, you may be producing a print and/or digital version of your publication. At this final stage the digital version i.e e-book; e-brochure; e-poster etc. can also be prepared and supplied to you for use and distribution. 

 

Discussion: This process may seem involved and complicated to the uninitiated. Did printing out and looking at the ‘Production schedule template[supplied in Section 4] help you to make light of the information presented in this section? Do you feel you can draw on resources, either in your University Press Office or freelance, to help you grasp these processes?
