Editorial Offices

The Institute’s demanding and ambitious publications programme is coordinated by our Directors along with a wide circle of research fellows configured in various editorial groups, who are frequently assisted by other academic staff members. English editors provide support with our growing number of English-language publications (in some cases, as part of specific Institute teams).

Like many other academic institutions, the Institute bears a growing responsibility for tasks that were previously performed by publishers. These range from simple proofreading to comprehensive project management. The latter is particularly essential when it comes to the many conference volumes, edited volumes, compendia and monographs that are created in-house each year in the Institute’s different fields of activity, and are published in different series by a range of presses. Depending on the specific requirements and possibilities in a given case, the Institute is also able to assume responsibility for publication management. Since 2011, it has done so with particular support from the staff of the newly established editorial services department. This management process begins with conceptual and technical consultation and coordination with participating authors and editors, which in some cases also entails arranging appropriate publishing contracts and addressing funding and copyright issues. Often, project-specific teams composed of both academic and non-academic staff members are formed. External project assistance can also be added as needed.
