BerlinUP Books explicitely recommends you to make use of the high-quality external additional services arranged by the publisher. BerlinUP Books is the contractual partner of the respective service providers. We invoice the costs either to the authors/editors or to the respective institutes/chairs. It may be possible to finance the OA-indexed costs from local publication funds.

  1. To ensure high quality publications, we strongly recommend you to use typesetting and layout (including the associated editorial revision) as an additional external service.
  2. Under certain circumstances, the authors can also ensure the typesetting/layout themselves. The publisher then performs a formal lektorship and improves the manuscript in an iterative process together with the authors until it is ready for publication. This services are free of charge.
