Publishing with H[e]art

Author Testimonials

"Publishing with Hart was one of my best client experiences. Everything worked like a Swiss watch: from submission of the project through copy editing, proof reading, index compilation and design, to production and marketing.  Everyone showed professionalism, attention to details, precision, relability and helpfulness. They cared about my project just as I did, and I am really pleased with the result."
Zsófia Varga, Loyens & Loeff Avocats, Luxembourg

"This is my first book. But I cannot imagine how a publisher could be more helpful, encouraging and understanding."
Ryan Catterwell, The University of Queensland

"Now that my book is published, I just wanted to thank you profusely for all your hard work in making it happen. I'm so appreciative that you pulled out all the stops to make sure that even a little thing like the end of the world didn't halt the production timetable. Quite how you did that, I don't know. I have had such a fantastic, positive experience that I have nothing but glowing things to say about Hart. Truly, I could not have hoped for a better experience. I mentioned to Roberta, when I signed my contract, that it had long been my dream to write for Hart and now, thanks to you, it’s finally happened! I cannot tell you how much this means to me."
Paul Wragg, University of Leeds

“I am truly happy to publish my book, Sixty Years of European Integration and Global Power Shifts-- Perceptions, Interactions and Lessons, with you. Thank you very much for your great support and marvelous work from the outset to the outcome. I look forward to working with you soon!”
Professor Julien Chaisse, City University of Hong Kong

"I felt supported throughout the project and I was made to feel that the project, and producing a high-quality book, were of great importance to Hart. This has been the best experience of my publishing career."
Anonymous Author, 2020

"Absolute perfection: there is not one aspect of the relationship that could have been improved, and no respect in which I haven't received 100% support."
Nick McBride, Cambridge University

"It has been a real pleasure working with Hart Publications.  From consideration and approval of the book proposal, through production of the book and to the wonderful organisation of a book launch, the staff at Hart have been fantastic.  They are ever friendly, helpful and supremely efficient.  I could not have wished for better, and will remain eternally grateful and impressed."
Ian Hendry, Constitutional Adviser and former Deputy Legal Adviser to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office

"Working with Hart was a fantastic experience, the team is so professional and everyone is extremely kind."
John Charney, Associate Professor of Constitutional Law at Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso

"From start to finish working with Hart Publishing has been a pleasure. The whole team are extremely professional, supportive and efficient. Cannot recommend highly enough."
Hannah Russell, Queen's University Belfast

"My publishing experience with Hart was highly satisfactory. The process was professional, and importantly, efficient. This is a huge selling point of Hart as there are certain other presses which can be very inefficient in getting proposals approved, getting proofs out etc. In addition, the staff are fantastic - helpful and knowledgeable. Thank you very much."
Dr Maria O'Sullivan, Monash University

"I would like to express my deepest gratitude to everyone at Hart for their outstanding work. The dedication, consideration and support I received from the professional team at Hart during every step of the process made the publication of my book a wonderful experience."
Johanna Friman, University of Turku

"My two experiences of publishing with Hart have been unfailingly positive. The staff are friendly and extremely competent, and you retain that slightly more informal approach compared to other publishers that takes pressure away and allows authors to produce the best work that we can."
Anonymous Hart Author, June 2017

"I’d just like to record my thanks to the entire team at Hart for their professionalism, patience, and good humour! Everybody there is very approachable, and any difficulties encountered in the whole publishing process were resolved quickly and with maximum efficiency. Thank-you all!"
Professor Paul Raffield, University of Warwick

"Hart Publishing is, without question, the best professional academic publisher I have ever had the pleasure to work with. The initial peer review of my manuscript "Global Environmental Constitutionalism in the Anthropocene" literally only took a few weeks and the comments were elaborate and instructive. The commissioning stage, including finalization of the contractual agreements, was concluded swiftly and professionally. Most of all though, I was mightily impressed with the copy editing, which to me, is the most crucial stage in the publication process. This is where a publisher succeeds or fails and I can honestly say that I have never had a better copy editing experience throughout the course of my academic career.  Hart evidently also spent considerable resources on language editing, proof reading and the compilation of the index, which have been taken care of by professionals. Soliciting endorsements for the book and its subsequent promotion have been a pleasure with the help of Hart's hugely competent marketing team. One must give praise when praise is due: Hart is by far the best academic publisher I have ever worked with and I can unconditionally recommend them. In fact, I have already signed a new contract with them for a new project"
Louis J. Kotze, North-West University, South Africa

"...I've now had the chance to look at the hard copy of my book properly and it is fantastic.  I'm thrilled with it.  Huge thanks to you and all the team at Hart for the incredibly hard work getting it into print...I'm hugely grateful."
