Journals Library

Production process

The production house is responsible for managing the copy-editing, typesetting and proofreading of your paper. The NIHR Journals Library uses an external production house called Newgen Publishing UK, with a dedicated project management team looking after NIHR Journals Library work. They will be your main contact during the production process.

At the production stage, manuscripts are copy-edited, typeset and proofread by professional writers and proof-readers. This involves general editing, detailed copy-editing, preparation of proofs, checking proofs by the author/editors, proof-reading, proof collation, resolving any remaining queries and then producing the signed-off journal issue. Manuscripts receive final sign-off by the editors before they are published online.
