Frequently Asked Questions

How do we get a digital copy for our library?

We send all our ebooks to Proquest and EBSCO. To get a copy of one of our books for your academic or public library, you must directly contact them at EBSCO or ProQuest. Please Note: A book will not be in their system until after it has been published. In order to check whether a book has been published, please check its listing on our website. Thank you.

Can I have my book printed with a personal message?

If you or your contributors order twenty or more copies of the printed book, we will print a special edition which will include a page with a personal message to friends and peers. We will also include a free copy of the book to be shipped to the same location. Your personal message may be sent to Mrs. Donna Dennis at Donna.Dennis@novapublishers.com. Thank you.

Please indicate the name of the chapter AND book. We are currently working on making chapters purchasable on the website. Please check back for updates.

Authors of articles published by Nova are permitted to self-archive the submitted (preprint) version of the article at any time, and may self-archive the accepted version 6-12 months after publication. We are considered a Yellow Publisher.

What does NOVA Publish?

Nova publishes a wide array of non-fiction titles, that can be broken down into three categories: Science and Technology, Medicine and Health and the Social Sciences. We rarely publish memoirs, cookbooks or other types of non-fiction. If you are thinking about publishing with us, or need a recommendation on a different publisher, please contact Alexandra Columbus at a.columbus@novapublishers.com.

Why is my book not in Barnes & Nobles?

We provide all our Titles to Barnes & Nobles and similar retailers. It is then up to the bookstore to decide whether or not they would like to have the book available in their bookshops. In generally, since the books we publish are very specialized, our books normally fit better and are more likely to be adopted by more specialized bookstores, such as certain University bookshops. If there is a specific bookshop in which you would like your book included, please contact Lisa Gambino at marketing@novapublishers.com.
