‘Publishing in the Oxford University Studies was a wonderful and pleasant experience. The editorial team worked fast and efficiently, gave us clear instructions throughout the process, and was attentive and tactful when dealing with our manuscript. Our book was published as scheduled, and its product quality is top-notch – from the layout and copyediting to the quality of the printing. We highly recommend that our colleagues publish with the series.’
Clorinda Donato and Ricardo López, editors of Enlightenment Spain and the ‘Encyclopédie méthodique’
‘It was a true pleasure to work with [the] editorial team, who were friendly, extremely professional, and prompt in its answers. They gave clear instructions every step of the way, and listened attentively to both our conceptual questions and our pragmatic concerns. We could not have had a better experience.’
Laura Auricchio, Elizabeth Heckendorn Cook and Giulia Pagini, co-editors, Invaluable trees: cultures of nature, 1660-1830
