What does the La Trobe eBureau offer for La Trobe academic authors?
The eBureau provides academics with professional editing, design, copyright and online publishing services. The eBureau has a distinctive identity design that is applied to all publications.
To ensure eBureau publications are high quality, library staff coordinate manuscript editing services relevant to the editorial needs of authors and coordinate additional external design services as required.
eBureau services also include copyright status checking relating to the use and reproduction of images, audio, video, diagrams and text. This process ensures all published third party materials in eBureau resources meet statutory requirements.
