Typically, it can take up to 16 weeks to publish a book, though other works (white papers, reports etc.) are produced more quickly. APM’s publishing team will work with approved suppliers to coordinate copy editing, typesetting of the text and design of pages, proofreading of the typeset pages, indexing and printing the finished book. They will also produce an accurate production schedule for the planned publication.
Authors are asked to answer queries from the copy editor and check proofs to confirm that the material has been presented as intended and identify any errors that may have been introduced during typesetting.
