ABOUT US


Bismillahirahmannirahim,

Ahlan Wa Sahlan Wa Marhaban to all visitors and readers of our IIUM Press  website.

This has been a very successful year for IIUM Press. IIUM Press has expanded significantly over the last twelve months and we have made a number of publications of notable achievements. Major publishing that we recently embarked on are progressing very satisfactorily. And many new opportunities are opening up for us. We face a very exciting future

We are delighted and honoured to have presented Anugerah Buku Negara, Anugerah Buku MAPIM-KPM and Best Journal Crème Award, the most energetic publishing award, in a distinguished award ceremony for 2019.

None of this would have been possible without an active, supportive and the generous efforts of IIUM Press staff and University Management as well, who made IIUM Press an outstanding success.

In summary, I believe it has been a great year. We are satisfied with the development of IIUM Press and are looking forward enthusiastically to the year ahead.

The book's editor, in collaboration with the author, spends months helping guide the content flow of the book and the language of the text, whipping the manuscript into readable and publishable shape. At the same time, the editor is also working with his or her colleagues (as well as the author) to come up with a brilliant title and subtitle that will entice readers to the book. The book editorial process itself has several stages and the different members of the editorial team perform different functions.


PROCESS SUMMARY

Process Summary


The book's editor, in collaboration with the author, spends months helping guide the content flow of the book and the language of the text, whipping the manuscript into readable and publishable shape. At the same time, the editor is also working with his or her colleagues (as well as the author) to come up with a brilliant title and subtitle that will entice readers to the book. The book editorial process itself has several stages and the different members of the editorial team perform different functions.


After the manuscript leaves editorial, it goes into the hands of production. The steps of production from edited manuscript to finished book involve a host of hands copy editing the text, designing, and laying out the pages of the book, determining its size and page count, working to get the cover of the book designed, and seeing the book through printing and binding or e-book creation.


Arabic Book

In this section, some of the Arabic manuscripts was received from the local and international publishers.  The edited manuscripts will be turned into a book or a textbook. There is also a mutual agreement (MOU /MOA) established between IIUM Press with Arabic publishers in publishing the manuscript into book or textbook.  




Book Marketing & Publicity

While the book is being edited, designed and produced, the marketing unit working to prepare for launching the book into the marketplace. The marketing unit works with the editorial unit to develop tools (like seasonal book catalogues) and marketing strategies and plans to help get the books in front of the account book buyers. A book's online marketing and social media also usually falls under the marketing unit. 

Book Shop

The book shop "sell in" IIUM Press publications to the many and varied places who carry books—from small independent bookstores to wholesalers and book vendors who supply other types of retailers, like gift stores.

All of these processes work toward the "launch" of the book into the marketplace, and many (sales, publicity, marketing) continue afterward as well to help "sell-through" the book—that is, get it out of the bookseller's hands and into the hands of the consumer.
