Offshore Editorial Project Management
Westchester Publishing Services is the premier U.S. service provider of Editorial Project Management, also known as production editing, for publishers in the U.S. market. We provide project management services to book publishers in the following markets. Adult and young adult trade, and university presses. In addition, publishers of cookbooks and 4-color how-to hobby books. Furthermore, policy groups (aka think tanks), as well as professional and legal publishers. Essentially any type of book or publication is something we can handle with expertise and care.
Westchester offers two Editorial Project Management service options:
- U.S. Editorial Project Management
- Offshore Editorial Project Management
Offshore Project Management
Our Offshore (India-based) Editorial Project Management service was launched in 2015, following a history of U.S. project management dating back to the 1990s. And while the editorial project management expertise of our U.S. team lead by Susan Baker may have been enough to ensure a top flight offshore editorial project management team, we brought in an India editorial management veteran, Mona Tiwary, to head up our New Delhi, India based offshore project management group.
An essential element of any editorial project management service is Copyediting, perhaps the most important element. In establishing our offshore editorial project management service, we recognized while publishers would be quite comfortable with offshore project management, that may not always be the case with copyediting. Therefore, with our offshore editorial project management service, you have a choice of using a U.S., a U.K. or an India based copyeditor. And this is an option you can elect on a project by project basis.
