    Create a document from your publication that is suitable for long-term archiving and for printing. Please choose a format conforming to the PDF/A or PDF/X standard. Here you get instructions on how to create the print version correctly.

  7. Submitting Metadata and Print File

    Please register your work here.
    Please add metadata (including keywords, abstract etc.) to your document and upload it in PDF/A or PDF/X format.
    For help read "Submitting the print version".

  8. Transfer of the Original Files
  9. Send us now (by e-mail, CD or FTP) your original file(s) from which the PDF file has been generated.
    For further information see Submitting Original File(s).

  10. Print Approval
  11. We check the files and add the title pages, the cover and the imprint to the manuscript. You will receive the complete document before the print approval once again from us. After about two weeks, we will send the print proofs to you for the final print approval. The print proofs are for checking the print image and the colours.
