BCS publishing process

The journey from idea to published book starts with a formal pitch from an author in the form of an Authors' Proposal Form.

Once BCS accepts the proposal, a contract is drawn up with the author(s) and a date set for the delivery of the manuscript.

On receiving the complete manuscript a peer-review is carried out by other experts in the field. Once the manuscript has been edited, a team of artists and typesetters design and layout the text and graphics. An index is created, and the printers and binders turn the edited typescript into a published book.
