Content Development

At PPS, we understand that content development is integral to your company’s success. We can take your content—whether it’s a book, journal, report, test assessment, website, DVD, or a combination of all of these—and move it seamlessly through the early writing/editorial process, through pre-production, production, and the finished product.

With years of publishing and editorial experience as a content development company, PPS is an ideal resource for all aspects of the publishing process.

To prepare a manuscript for production, PPS works with the client in planning meetings to establish the production plans for their upcoming publication. The PPS team works with the authors and the editorial team to establish a workflow for best publishing results.

Working with the author and editorial team on content improvements, PPS compiles the manuscript survey results into a final report to help fine-tune the manuscript. Our developmental editors evaluate the manuscript, improve the writing, and create an editorial style for the new publication. PPS distributes the style to all editorial staff and monitors this style throughout the creation process. After these stages have been completed, PPS generates a complete manuscript for production, ensuring all elements for manuscript submission are included.

In addition to manuscript development, PPS’s content development services include the following:

  • Assessing the art program: PPS can handle all aspects of art program management, from photo research that finds the perfect image, to creating line art and illustrations that meet an established book style, to obtaining copyright permissions for borrowed images and other material. Additionally, PPS tracks the art and checks it thoroughly through all stages, ensuring a high-quality end product.
  • Creating interior and cover design: At PPS, we believe a good design should synergize all elements without overwhelming the content. The PPS design team ensures that the design competes with industry standards while meeting client requirements.
  • Peer review: PPS provides highly qualified content specialists to review your scientific, academic, or professional projects. Evaluation, Validation, Quality—these are the key words that define a PPS peer review.
