annual schedule, making sure to balance the mixture of articles in the issue before sending it to the production editor and the printer.
Book Project Management
MPS offers both partial and full-service project management for book and major reference work (MRW) projects. Both types of project managers handle your book at all stages of the production process, but our full-service option offers you additional support by taking on all communication and co-ordination with your books’ authors and editors.
Each title is assigned to a single project manager to simplify co-ordination and communication. Our project managers are proactive, calling or emailing you or your authors whenever questions arise and working with you to resolve each query and issue. They have sufficient technical and production knowledge to address routine queries and, where needed, co-ordinate internally to find the solution.
Onshore Project Management
In addition to our India-based project management service, MPS also has teams of onshore project managers in Europe and North America. Whether the project is particularly complex or involves a slightly sensitive author, or you just prefer to work with someone a little closer to home, our US and UK project managers work with the production team in India to enable you to enjoy the best of both worlds—a cost-efficient onshore service.
As well as our English-language project management service, we also provide onshore or offshore project management in mainstream European languages, including French, Italian, Spanish, and German.
