About Us

Who We Are

Cosmic Strands (CS) is a publishing resource center specializing in a variety of content, media, and technology services. CS, founded in 2002, has an established image as a scholarly publishing services company. An industry leader in providing content solutions, its unique working model coupled with a customized client-centric approach has earned CS the reputation of a trusted partner in editorial, digitization, and content solutions to publishers, government institutions, and corporations across the US and Europe.

What We Do

CS has operations in the US, UK, and India. Its services range from language editing at different levels to full service (multimedia output) including graphics, cover designs, secondary content, alternative text (alt-text), software development, and customer services (voice and non-voice). Synchronized production between our teams in the US, UK, and India facilitates providing services for journals, books, and major reference works. The US and UK teams also provide pre-acceptance language editorial services for authors through major publishers, for instance Elsevier. An editorial company at the core, we offer different levels of copy editing determined by the complexity: basic, intermediate, and advanced levels. CS processes approximately a million pages annually across all services.

How We Do It

CS’s in-house automated tool (CS^3) aids in faster turnaround time (TAT). The flexibility of the tool enables linking it with any DTD provided by a client. This makes it possible to offer excellent cost–quality benefit to our clients. In addition, the production processes are customized to client requirements like shared production between onshore (US or UK) and offshore (India).

Cosmic Strands Project Tracking System (CS-PTS), an online interface, adds significant value to workflow management, which can be used by all stakeholders of projects. CS-PTS enables our clients to know the current status of each project (including graphical reports) and track queries, as well as upload or download files. The levels of security for access can be contrived to suit client requirements. CS-PTS can also be accessed through mobile applications for both IOS and Android.

Along with the tech tools, teams composed of subject matter experts and discipline-specific specialists engender the highest quality content, which remains a hallmark of CS. With copy editors in diverse fields, from medicine to physics to social sciences, CS ensures the highest quality content.
