- Jessica Vivian, Global Portfolio Director, Taylor & Francis
"I have worked with Yellowback for over nine years and have been impressed with the in-depth knowledge and appreciation of the scholarly communication process. Their attention to detail is exceptional and their calm and efficient style when dealing with authors, editors and publishers is invaluable. We really value their innovative development ideas for key journals and it’s good to know that some of our largest and most prestigious journals are in safe hands."
Yellowback is an independent, family-run business, led by its two directors and supported by a highly qualified and experienced international team, all with postgraduate qualifications.
Founded in the UK in 2013, Yellowback is inspired by the inexpensive, yellow-covered paperbacks that were a revolution in making books accessible to mass audiences in the nineteenth century.
In the twenty-first century, Yellowback combines editorial expertise with efficient workflows and digital tools. Our solutions offer the best of both worlds, from peer review management for journal portfolios to editing research project outputs.
