With delivery centers in Bengaluru and Chennai, and offices in the UK and the US, we employ a staff of over 700 skilled and experienced personnel and produce over 1,000,000 book and journal pages a year.
Input source files are automatically taken from a customer’s manuscript delivery system or from an ftp site and routed through one of our servers to have the document structure and full-text XML DTD imposed automatically with no manual intervention.
An operator runs the source files through a pre-editing template that is journal or book specific. During this process, structure and XML DTD are imposed and the operator makes informed choices about many standard text elements, units, species names, capitalization, etc, aided by dropdown menus and an online journal or book style sheet that can easily be referred to throughout the process. References are validated against CrossRef and PubMed Central.
Where the content needs little intervention, copyediting is done to correct the punctuation, typographical errors, and spelling.
The standard level that we apply to about 80% of the copyediting we undertake, in which the level 1 editing as well as grammar, sentence structure, and word choice is carried out.
In-depth copyediting, which includes structural revisions, grammar, checking factual data, consistency of tone, and flow of ideas.
Nova Techset’s large in-house copyediting department copyedits over 900,000 journal and book pages per year. Our customers demand the highest levels of quality.
The majority of the copyediting we undertake is handled by our large copyediting departments in our Bengaluru and Chennai offices, but we also offer copyediting handled by our pool of highly experienced UK and US freelancers. In these instances, we manage the copyediting stage, supplying them with pre-edited files and monitoring their workloads, ensuring that schedules are being adhered to and that there is adequate staff coverage.
We use APP for the majority of journal work and some books, especially those requiring an XML-first workflow. We believe that APP’s compatibility with full-text XML and its superior auto-pagination routines make it the ideal composition platform.
When source files for a journal or book are supplied in TeX or LaTeX it makes sense to work in LaTeX to maintain the integrity of the mathematics and mathematical symbols.
We offer both XML-first and non-XML workflows using InDesign, and we are able to offer a streamlined ePub conversion process to ePub3 and MOBI.
Using Adobe Digital Publishing Solutions, we are able to create highly designed, immersive content and publish it across a variety of devices-including iPads, Kindle Fire, and other Android devices.
Functionality, usability, and consistency are all thoroughly checked during this process across a wide range of platforms/devices. We can provide a testing service to any publisher who has developed an app, whether internally or via a third party supplier.
