The inclusion of academic work in one of the Institute series (BtrIPR, MatIPR, StudIPR) is predicated on a work being accepted for publication by the Institute directors who make up the editorial board.

For this reason, authors should submit an electronic version of the work as a PDF document; gradings and evaluations of the work should also be provided.

In the event of acceptance for publication by the editorial board, the manuscript will also be examined by the publisher who will determine any necessary contribution of the author or editor toward printing costs and will prepare the publishing contract.

After acceptance for publication and conclusion of the publishing contract, an additional editorial revision of the work in respect of formal and stylistic matters will be undertaken at the Institute; this is to ensure consistency with the appearance of the pertinent series. Editorial comments as to necessary corrections and revisions must be taken account of in the final preparation of the print-ready reproduction copy.

In general, publication in any of the series requires that the authors or editors themselves prepare (or have prepared) a print-ready reproduction copy. Information and guidelines on formatting can be found at the website of the publisher. Assistance on technical matters is provided by the publisher.
