Why write for us

Reputation

We lead the market in multiple international legal niche areas. We publish works by more than 3,000 leading practitioners and scholars, both in print and online. We further the reputations of our authors, and in return they further ours.


Dedication

You, the author, will have a dedicated contact person, either a member of our Publishing Team or one of the General Editors of our publications. The role of the contact person is to keep you informed and updated on the status of your publication. Throughout the publishing process, and once your work has been published, we are committed to supporting you proactively and to promptly respond to your queries.


Professional Publishing Experience

Wolters Kluwer is relied upon by practitioners to deliver accurate content they can trust. To do so, we work with professional General Editors and vendors who will provide you with the best possible copyediting and production services.

Guidelines

One of our main goals is that the publication process is a successful and positive experience for both the author and the publisher. To ensure that this process runs as smoothly and efficiently as possible, it is useful for you to know up front what we expect from you as an author, but also of course what you can expect from Wolters Kluwer.


Books
In the Author Guidelines (PDF) you can find all the necessary information on the publication process and how to submit your book manuscript.


The House Style Guide (PDF) details the specifics of Kluwer Law International’s editorial style, regarding punctuation, mechanics and citations.


Guidelines for Specific Publications
You can find specific guidelines for individual journals and looseleafs in the Guidelines for each publication:


Author Tools

In its pursuit of improved services and modernized publishing processes, Wolters Kluwer has partnered with a number of new vendors for the development of advanced tools:


PublishOne
PublishOne will be used to automate and systematize the workflow for books and selected looseleaf updates, allowing for advanced content creation using a Microsoft Word plugin.


DazzlePub
DazzlePub will be used for other looseleaf updates, using an online document management system to organize the updating of manuscripts and a downloadable tool to aid the review of proofs.


iCorrectProof
iCorrectProof will be used as an online proof-viewing and author correction platform for journal contributors, as this tool can be expanded to include additional management tools for general editors.


These tried-and-tested tools all have in common:

  • Speed: a significant reduction in production time, resulting in more immediate availablity to readers;
  • Efficiency: a reduction in the effort required of our authors;
  • Ease of use: an intuitive design, 24/7 accessiblity and user-friendly interface; and
  • Quality: corrections can no longer be missed by copyeditors and compositors.




Video

Rights & Permissions

As a publisher we try to keep a fair balance between obtaining the necessary rights for a reasonable exploitation of your work and your needs as an author to be able to use your work in other ways.


The author is responsible for clearing permission and for receiving written approval for reproduction of any copyrighted material.


Our permissions department is always actively looking for possible translation and licensing ventures, and we encourage all our authors to inform us about potential translation opportunities.
