Quality Assurance

As a first step in the quality assurance process, the mdwPress Coordination checks whether the proposal complies to the Submission Guidelines. About three times a year, the Academic Board meets to deliberate upon the content of the proposed publication projects, to include them – if applicable – in the publisher’s program, and to recommend further quality assurance measures, depending on the publication format and subject area. These measures are described in each publication’s imprint.
