Publishing Support

At Lex Academic, we offer a range of publishing support services, from multilingual translation and global image rights procurement, to picture research and literary agency liaison.

We help academic authors and editors with a broad range of publishing support services

We assist ambitious writers—within and beyond the academy—with every aspect of their publication journey. Whether you are looking to have your monograph translated into another language, or you are seeking assistance in procuring global image permissions from a national museum or university archive, we have the network and know-how to expedite the publishing process. Working to exacting deadlines, we have collaborated with authors of bestselling non-fiction trade books with the likes of Oxford University Press, to editors of multi-authored volumes with Bloomsbury Publishing. We provide the finest editorial assistance every step of the way.

Publication consultancy

Our Founding Editing, Professor Constantine Sandis, has helped thousands of academics worldwide win contracts with university presses and publishing houses, enabling promotion and tenure within competitive academic faculties. As Lex Academic’s Publication Consultant, Professor Sandis skilfully appraises book proposals for the likes of Routledge, Oxford University Press, and Palgrave Macmillan (amongst others), providing truly invaluable feedback on how to make your proposal as attractive as possible to your dream publisher.

Following consultation with Professor Sandis, we are able to collaboratively draft and edit your book proposal with your target publisher in mind. We have helped our clients obtain contracts with the biggest publishing houses, including Cambridge University Press and McFarland. We are especially experienced in transforming PhD theses into book manuscripts and pitching these to leading publishers.

Can we help with anything else?

Ensure your entire manuscript is submission-ready with our bespoke Indexing and Bibliography Compiling services. We also purvey extraordinary academic proofreading, copy-editing, and substantive editing. Our impeccable author services include correcting all typographical, spelling, and grammatical errors. Where desired, we can make stylistic and substantive changes to your work that promise a powerful first impression with major publishers. Our authors have published with all of the top-tier publishing houses, including Bloomsbury, Cambridge University Press, Oxford University Press, Penguin, Peter Lang, Princeton University Press, and Routledge.
