After the editorial office has received the material required for the publication, the publications editor of the series allots a serial number and ISBN numbers to the publication, and sends all of the material to the subseries editor at the same time. The author is informed of this. Only after this the author contacts the series editor by email and arranges a meeting or a telephone call with him.
At the appointment with the series editor the author can suggest corrections to obvious errors. The series editor reviews the agreements, permissions etc. and makes possible corrections to the summarizing section.
After the meeting the doctoral candidate asks the editorial office to submit the manuscript to him/her as a Word file, makes the revisions approved by the series editor to the manuscript and sends the file back to the editorial office. If no revisions are made, the author contacts the editorial office for the server address for the printing house. If the summarizing section has been laid out at PunaMusta the doctoral candidate submits the revisions to PunaMusta. After this it is not possible to make revisions to the manuscript. After the series editor has given his final approval to the manuscript, he/she submits the printing agreement which he/she has signed to PunaMusta.
