The diagram illustrates the process of developing a manuscript into a published book.
The process begins with the initial writing, which is then sent to a publishing house for assessment. If necessary the material is then returned for revisions by the writer and this cycle of the process is repeated until it passes the assessment stage.
Following that, the project is discussed in pre-production meetings. Once a schedule has been arranged, a team is brought together for production, and the work is edited and produced in galley stage. The next step is to send this to the editor and the writer, following which illustrations are commissioned and the work is checked by the author and editor. This is then converted into first page proofs which are once again checked by both the editor and author before moving on to second page proofs.
The process is concluded when these proofs are sent to the printer.
