Information for authors and self-publishers

The AECB is a national professional publishers association. In keeping with its mandate to foster and facilitate the continued growth of Canadian-owned and -controlled publishers’ export sales, the AECB has established specific criteria regarding access to its services. A “professional publisher” is one who is responsible and accountable for the following activities: selection, development and editing of manuscripts; contractual agreements with authors or copyright holders; production and marketing of printed books under the firm’s imprint; and the assumption of the risks associated with these activities. A professional publisher may participate in AECB collective catalogues and benefit from other AECB services.

If you are an author or self-publisher looking for assistance, there is a wealth of useful information online. Consult the following websites for helpful tips and advice:
