Experience shows that many potential authors are not aware what is happening with their work in the publishing house and what the author could take into account to make the collaboration with the publishing staff as successful as possible, and to ensure that this collaboration results in a valuable publication much needed by many readers.

When a decision to publish has been made (an agreement has been concluded with the author or an agreement with a structural unit of the University of Latvia) that the author's work will be prepared for publication, the literary editor steps in. His or her task is to eliminate grammatical and stylistic errors in the manuscript, check the spelling of terms, to ensure that the work corresponds to the intended purpose, the appropriate literary style, to recommend that the author makes the required corrections (corrects, supplements or shorten the text), as well as to coordinate the corrections with the author. When the literary editing of the text is completed and the author has approved the corrections, the layout designer (computer graphic designer) is involved. Together with the director of the UL Press or the editor-in-chief, the layout designer prepares a sample layout according to the author's intentions. When the author has approved the sample, the layout designer develops the layout – designs the titles, processes the text, inserts the necessary images (if necessary, processing them), formats the author's intended attachments, indexes, etc. The computer graphic artist, taking into account the wishes of the author, prepares the design of the book cover.

The technical editor, literary editor or proof reader and the author read the completed layout and indicate to the layout designer the corrections to be made.

After the author's acceptance, the finished work is sent for printing.
