The Commissioning in Book Printing Field
Origin:Image Printing  Data: 3/31/2011  Keywords: Book Printing Field

The commissioning usually happens in book printing field, because for everyone, he can only utilize and control limited resources. So they need to find someone else to help them based on definite commissioning arrangement. The commissioning editor in a publishing house is responsible for coming up with marketable ideas and matching them to good authors. Working for the editorial director or publisher, who manages the editorial team, the editor is a key player in the publishing process. The more senior commissioning editors will take a strategic view of their list or imprint while junior editors may commission within a set brief.

With some exceptions editors do not assess titles for publication on their thorough reading of complete manuscripts. Most books are commissioned from authors on the basis of a proposal or specimen material, or are bought from agents. Editors generally do not edit the author work in detail. However, the senior editors may structurally edit by giving authors substantive criticisms and suggestions to help them produce their best work and to shape it for the intended market. A distinction can be made between books acquired from agents or authors, where the idea often comes from the author, and those books that are commissioned from scratch by the editor. In the case of the latter books, the idea comes from the editor, who then goes in search of a suitable author. In textbook publishing, for example, this is the typical process for commissioning.

In book printing companies, a commissioning editor is essentially a buyer. It is the job of the commissioning editor to advise the publishing house on which books to publish. Usually the actual decision of whether or not to contract a book is taken by a senior manager rather than the editor. The other roles of commissioning editors vary between companies. Usually they are also responsible for ensuring that authors under contract deliver typescripts to specification and on time. They thus have an author management role. They usually have responsibility for ensuring that typescripts are of sufficient quality. In this, especially in textbook and reference publishing, commissioning editors may be assisted by development editors or assistant editors. In some (usually small) companies commissioning editors are also responsible for overseeing the copy-editing, typesetting, proofreading, and design of books, although in other companies this responsibility is assumed by other staff e.g. Managing Editors, House Editors, and Production Editors.

 Often commissioning editors are also responsible for managing books that have already been published, for example by ensuring that stock levels are adequate and advising on when a book needs to be reprinted.
