Maney Publishing offers a comprehensive publishing service to scholarly societies, universities, and professional associations that wish to outsource their journal's management or change their current arrangements, yet retain editorial control and ownership. Within such a service, full financial management, production, and marketing services are offered, including subscription management and mailing. Our online journals are hosted on industry-standard platforms, we deploy a wide range of publishing technologies for peer review and production management, and we are a member of industry associations such as ALPSP, STM and COPE. Maney has an ethos of personal service and attention from dedicated publishing teams with extensive professional and academic backgrounds in their subjects.

Maney Publishing is always pleased to consider proposals for the launch of completely new journals.

We have a particular interest in the following subjects:

• Archaeology, heritage & museum studies

• Health sciences

• History

• Language, literature & culture

• Materials science & engineering

In order to evaluate a proposal for a new journal, we would need the following:

• Main title and subtitle, with some alternatives.

• The initial number of issues, and the number and type of articles that might be published (reviews,
   commentary, primary research, methods, educational summaries, etc).

• A short aims and scope of up to 150 words and a longer discursive one of 4-5 paragraphs (the former might
  appear in the journal itself, the latter would be used for marketing and on the Maney website).

• The name and address (postal and email) of the proposed editor and co-editors.

• The names of people who might serve on the editorial board.

• A review of the competition with the salient features of each title and the reasons why the new journal would
  be different.

• A list of topics on which the journal would seek to publish and a list of past papers that it might have
  published.

• The ISI category under which the new journal would be classified.

• At least seven keywords that could be used for a database search to assess the number of potential authors
  for the new journal.

• National and international conferences that potential authors and subscribers would attend.

• The prospects of the journal being adopted by a professional or scholarly society. In such circumstances,
  would the journal be included in the membership fee?

• The possibility of receiving sponsorship for some of the start-up costs, including the editors' expenses.

• The names of societies from which we might be able to obtain mailing lists for promotion.

• The names and addresses of at least three referees who would be able to give us an assessment of the
  merits of the proposal.

 



We offer two levels of subscriptions management and fulfilment, which can be tailored to meet the needs of your society. For details of a full service, including full financial management, production, and marketing services, plus subscriptions management and fulfilment, see the links below.

Maney works with scholarly societies and professional organisations to offer them benefits for their members. If one of our journals matches the remit of your society, we would be interested in talking to you about a special offer for your members. You may choose the journal for all your members – either in print, or online, or both – or offer it to them as a matter of choice. 

Journal adoptions for all members
We work with many societies whereby society members receive a journal subscription as an automatic benefit of membership. If all members of the society receive the journal, the affiliation can be affirmed with the society’s logo on the cover of the journal; the invitation of a society representative to serve on the editorial board; website linking; and reciprocal promotions. Society members would also be encouraged to submit papers to the journal. 

Discounts
Maney is also happy to discuss a discounted journal offer to individual society members. This would not automatically provide the journal to all members, but rather enable individual members to decide themselves. The choice could be for print, print and online, or online only.
