(1) Authored book: Authored books include illustrated chapters delving into 
discrete and emerging research in niche areas, models, methodologies and 
concepts. The development duration of an Authored Book takes approximately 
11-15 months in total from proposal acceptance to final manuscript. These 
books include 12-20 chapters on average and total word counts ranging from 
105,000 to 135,000 words. Authored books provide a unique opportunity for 
specific subject analysis and development of your discipline.
(2) Edited book: Edited books include highly-descriptive chapters detailing 
progressive research in a range of topics and concepts. The development 
duration of an Edited Book takes approximately 15 months in total from 
proposal acceptance to final manuscript. These books include 15-25 chapters 
and word counts ranging from 7,000-10,000 words per chapter. Books of this 
length allow for a thorough description of specific aspects of your discipline. 
Each chapter is submitted to a double blind peer-review process through an 
editorial advisory board created for the development of the publication. Editing 
a book offers the ability to network with peers and colleagues for the 
betterment of your specialty and your endeavors.
(3) Handbook of Research: A Handbook of Research is a larger collection of 
concise and focused information, providing a comprehensive assessment on 
inclusive topics. We provide two separate formats for the Handbooks of 
Research, depending on the pool of material available for your subject area. 
This type of publication, if covering a larger topic with a vast research 
interest and a broader foci, includes a total of 50+ chapters at about 5,000-
7,000 words each. Alternatively, a Handbook of Research also provides a 
forum for more specific, niche topics that are more underrepresented in mass 
research circles, where 25+ chapters at 8,000-10,000 words would 
comprehensively cover all areas of a more narrow and applied theme. The 
duration of this project would be approximately 20 months.

(4) Encyclopedia: An Encyclopedia is the largest project, consisting of 
expansive coverage of research and knowledge in your discipline. The number 
of submissions reaches as many as 250 manuscripts, varying in coverage and 
length of approximately 1,500-3,500 words. These submissions will also include 
a list of key terms and definitions. This project warrants an extended time-line 
of approximately 22+ months.
