Service Details

Data Entry is a custom manuscript service that is provided to assist authors who prefer to submit their manuscript as either a handwritten or standard-typed paper document; or as a series of more diverse paper documents (i.e. post-its, A3 size paper etc). At Schiel & Denver, we recognize that authors are very creative people who don't always follow accepted norms. This service therefore is designed to accommodate even the most unusual of submissions, and give authors a reliable and cost-effective entry into the book publishing process.

Your manuscript will be effectively converted into a working digital file in the correct format for your design team to begin production work. The turnaround time is dependent on complexity and length, and can usually be performed in 30-45 days for standard work and 45-60 days for handwritten/difficult documents.

The Data Entry Service is suitable in the following instances;

  1. Your manuscript is on standard double-spaced A4 typed paper, and you don't have the computer files (or they have corrupted). Let us save you the hassle of having to type this up again into your computer. (Standard cost - $3.50 per page)
  2. Your manuscript is handwritten on paper. (Advanced cost - $5 per page)
  3. Your manuscript contains both typed and handwritten material. (Advanced cost - $5 per page)
  4. Your manuscript contains handwritten complex symbols or mathematical equations. (Advanced cost - $5 per page)
  5. Your manuscript is typed or handwritten on unusual or different sizes of paper i.e. A3, post-it notes or other material (Advanced cost - $5 per page)
