Galley Proof: Effectively Works in The Final Publication

Joseph Coupal - Sunday, May 31, 2020

Galley proof has totally evolved as everything changes from manual to electronic processes. Now that everything is electronic, this old process has been simplified and less time-consuming however, the final manuscript text is still not published until there is one more author review. And the ultimate text is galley proof which is still being used today.

The galley proof stage is the final basis that remains as the final review by the author before publication. Today, it is easier since electronic galley proof is provided to the author itself and has the option to make suggestions using an online form or provide a separate pdf document that has his corrections noted. The journal’s editorial and production team will present a galley proof to the author which contains notes or questions from production staff and editors that need to be addressed and provides the author with clearly marked text indicating any changes made. At this point, only crucial changes will be made. If there is a co-author of the journal, the approval on any changes will be secured too. Although the current system of checking and revising galley proofs works fine, it is as efficient as it is expected to be. The author has a final chance to accept or reject such changes, suggest minor revisions and to answer any production-related questions.

There are helpful tips in proofing to remember though. The author will ensure to scrutinize rigorously the galley proofs from author names and affiliations, typo errors, etc. and include only the most critical and necessary changes at this point. The author will follow close attention to comply set of deadlines. For any publisher, a delay in returning revised galley proofs will get into the way in the publication of the paper. This new technology is an evident improvement in the publishing process.

PRINT ON DEMAND: Fastest Distribution in Book Publishing

Country Press Printing in Boston, MA

Print on Demand is a cost-effective way for single book printing services. This is because the print on demand service is a book distribution approach which goes hand and hand with high speed and effective digital printing.

Print on demand providers like us here at The Country Press maintain databases of books on behalf of their publisher clients. Normally book publishers submit books to the print on demand suppliers in the form of two files for each book, one digital file for the book interior, and another file for the cover. Once the publisher signs off on the proof, the book is listed by the Print on demand throughout its distribution channels including booksellers, other offline and online retailers, chain stores, and even some exporters. As such the title is now listed for sale to all wholesalers and retail outlets. If an interested buyer finds the book in an online listing, an order is placed, and if no physical stock available at the retailer’s warehouse, an order is sent to the distribution chain to the print on demand system.

In addition, with print on demand it makes it unnecessary to invest enormously amount of money in printed books before a market for the book is established. Fortunately, it eliminates the huge economic risks involved in book publishing. The print on demand contributes highly in eliminating the need to keep books in inventory as it allows the book without substantial sales to stay in print. And for small publishers and self-publishers, print on demand book distribution has swiftly changed the publishing process.

Order fulfillment and shipping will be done by someone else and there are no books sitting in the shelf waiting to be shipped. Coordinating with Amazon is a strategy to make your work accessible to consumers.

Print on demand concept is increasingly rising in popularity nowadays. It is trending because of its low startup costs, quick to set up and does not require any inventory space. And the most binding principle of print-on-demand is order first and print. Consumers place an order and the product is printed only after that order has been made. The print on demand is easily done where books are printed as they are ordered. The print file is stored at the printer and an online order will trigger production and order fulfilment of your book, one at a time.

The initial cost for print on demand is only the price of one copy of your book. You will see the book in full and you will do several rounds of proofing for a big order for the same price of one round offset printing. Digitally printed books are done in the same facility without having to ship out covers to different sites for assembly. In addition commercial digital printing machines are extremely fast and getting faster. This means even larger orders will be created and in-hand in as fast as a few weeks only. As such the print on demand business requires planning in order to minimize risk and maximize profits with their inventory.

Print on demand is the solution for small companies to manage their business without having problem on storage and supply chain up to customer hands. You will receive your order from a customer, that order is automatically sent to the printing company where it gets printed, packed and shipped. A notification and tracking number will be sent to you once order is shipped and delivered to the customers. Businesses who are going to use print-on-demand for achievement will still consider when to order a print run for high volume products in order to increase more profitability on a per item basis.
