Requirements

You have to own all necessary rights to publish, distribute and assign Stergiou to distribute your work. A transparent publishing agreement which will give us the authority and the right to distribute your work will be signed by you and Stergiou.

About ISBNs

Each edition should have its own ISBN number. For example, if you intend to publish a book in print and eBook format, you need two ISBNs. If your print edition has two versions (e.g., paperback and hardcover), you need two ISBNs (one for each version). If you publish your eBook in several formats (e.g. PDF, ePub, Mobi), you need one ISBN per format.

ISBN is not necessary if you publish with Amazon or other publishing services which provide their ISBNs for free. Note that each ISBN is unique and is not transferable.

If you use Stergiou’s distribution channels, you will use an ISBN of our imprint.

You can purchase your ISBN through Nielsen (UK and Ireland), Bowker (US) or your country’s ISBN agency.

Some publications (e.g., newsletters) do not require an ISBN.
