Publishing FAQs

How long will it take to get my book published?

The time taken to publish – from start to finish – is around 16 weeks. The exact timeframe depends on the extent and complexity of the work, plus the workload of external reviewers/suppliers. White papers and other less weighty tomes can take up to eight weeks to publish.

What types of works do you publish?

APM publishes a range of 'how to' guides, white papers and reports. These will vary in size and target audience. The approval process for all types of content is via the publishing proposal form process.

How will my book be supported post launch?

APM’s marketing team will work with you to support your book in advance of its release and on publication. The publishing proposal form will help inform the marketing campaign.

What happens if I can’t locate the copyright owner?

APM requires copyright of materials in order to publish and sell the work. However, we realise that it is not always possible to identify the original copyright owner. Authors are asked to assign the copyright they own and identify any third party sources in the publishing agreement; a final decision will then be made based on the level of risk associated with publishing the work.

How do I get permission to use APM materials for my book?

To use APM copyrighted materials please fill in and return APM's branding and copyright agreement form. For further guidance please consult APM’s brand guidelines.
