Out of House Publishing is a UK-based publishing services company. We offer a comprehensive project management service for academic, reference and education publishers, organising every aspect of the editorial and production process. We understand the demands book and journal publishers face and tailor our services to anticipate and meet our clients’ changing needs.

With our global contacts we provide flexible solutions to deliver your content in the format you need. From meticulous copy-editing in the UK to fast data conversion offshore, we put together the right team to deliver your project on time and on budget.

We use years of experience in traditional book production coupled with hands-on knowledge of state-of-the-art front-end XML workflows to deliver the most efficient plan to bring your product to market.

Full-service project management
Our highly-skilled and experienced project managers see every aspect of the projects placed with us through to successful on-time, on-budget delivery.

Print management
Working with leading UK & international printers we can purchase and manage everything from single-copy print-on-demand to large litho prints.

Our highly experienced freelance copy-editors have expertise across all major scholarly subject areas and pay meticulous attention while working closely with authors.

Professional proofreaders work quickly and accurately on paper or digital proofs, raising final editorial queries as they go. Regular feedback ensures continuous improvement.

Our subject specific indexing experts build traditional indexes from proofs or embedded indexes providing for enhanced digital products and later repurposing.

Partnering with Newgen Knowledge Works, India, we can deliver high-quality and fast typesetting in all major platforms.

Content is handled via XML for multiple publishers and independent presses. Delivering to bespoke or off-the-shelf DTDs, we promise consistency far superior to post-production conversion.

Photo research
Trained picture researchers work with the leading picture libraries to fulfil your brief with engaging and eye catching images.

Art buying
From rough briefs we can source illustrations from a range of suppliers, delivering high-quality artwork to fit with any budget.

Commissioning and development
Our service extends beyond the traditional pre-press editorial services to include a full commissioning, list management and content development service. We are able to offer freelance publishers for bespoke product development projects as well as an ongoing commissioning service for existing lists and series. Our skills range from commissioning academic authors to full development of new publishing concepts.
