SIAM Staff

SIAM’s dedicated staff has a wealth of experience working with authors and editors to produce high-quality publications. The following staff members are the ones with whom you will work during the acquisitions and production stages of your book.

Your first and main contact person at SIAM will likely be your acquisitions editor. This person will manage your book proposal submission and send it out to reviewers. When the reviews are in, your acquisitions editor will send them to you and, if appropriate, will present your proposal to the Book Acquisitions Committee, which consists of SIAM staff members in the acquisitions, marketing, production, accounting, and executive departments. Your acquisitions editor will notify you of the committee’s decision on your book and, if your project is accepted, will prepare your publishing contract.

After your book is under contract, you will also work with a developmental editor, who can answer questions about SIAM’s LaTeX macros and the production process. The developmental editor will work hand-in-hand with your acquisitions editor to help you prepare your manuscript for the production process. The developmental editor will also inform you of your book’s production schedule when it has been set.

After your book goes into production, you will be contacted by your production editor, who will see your book through the copyediting and proof stages of production.

During production, you also will hear from SIAM’s book marketing specialist, who will contact you for approval of marketing copy that will be used in promotional materials and on the back cover of your book.

All of these staff people—and others who work behind the scenes—are on hand to guide you through the book production process and ensure that the final product is one that you and SIAM can be proud of.
