Quality has been our hallmark. Quality publishing both in terms of Content and Production has enabled Ane Books Pvt. Ltd. to find global partners like CRC Press (Taylor & Francis Group), Springer Verlag of Germany and Anshan Ltd. U.K.
While expanding our operations gradually, we are also extremely conscious of our responsibilities towards all concerned.
‘Ane Student Editions’, the text books, carry a price tag far below its real worth in terms of quality of content as well as production. This ensures affordability for everyone and also discourages the evils of photocopying and piracy.
Authors are the mainstay of our publishing programme and we take good care of them. Consequently, most of them have very kindly consented to publish their new and forthcoming books through us.
Our Publishers in UK, Europe, USA and Singapore have continued to support us as in the past. This is an obvious result of the ongoing process of confidence building measures that we undertake with our creditors from time to time.
Of the 400 titles published so far, a majority of them are textbooks and reference works of academic nature in the field of Management, HR, Training, Economics, Finance, Engineering and Biological & Physical Sciences Apart from Medical Books.We hope to launch 40 new titles in 2013.
