Aims and Ambitions

The academic knowledge and editorial skills contained in-house at Gylphi Limited are particularly broad for a firm of its size, and this means uncompromising quality paired with personal communication. So while you might think that bigger is better when choosing a publisher, here are some points to bear in mind:
  • Our targeted approach to subject matter means that authors publishing with us can expect to see their work appear more frequently and more prominently in catalogues and on the Internet;
  • We like to promote your past, present and future works alongside your publications with us, because we see ourselves as part of a broad ecosystem, and this means readers will get to know your body of work, not just a single book in isolation of all else;
  • Instead of forcing you to fit a single model of sales and marketing we listen to your advice on where to promote and sell your book;
  • If you are looking to publish an adventurous or unusual book then we can tell you very quickly what is possible without wasting time pushing the proposal around separate departments;
  • When you submit a book proposal to Gylphi Limited our response is to give authors a helping hand wherever possible and this means giving feedback even if we feel a work is not ready for publication;
  • Costs are kept low by employing a smaller workforce and by working smarter, meaning that we can sell books at reasonable prices and distribute to a wider audience while not compromising on the rewards going to our authors.
You may also be interested to know the following: (1) When it comes to the environment we are always looking to make greener choices; (2) When it comes to technology we like to embrace and research ways that make our publications accessible to the widest possible audience, while following evolving industry standards; and finally, (3) We like to help you meet the standards expected of scholarly research and academic publishing, in order to create works that have longevity and value.
