London Publishing Partnership (LPP) is a publishing company, founded in 2010, that specializes in books on economics and public policy.
As well as publishing under our own LPP imprint, we work with researchers, learned societies, research institutes and think-tanks to help them produce and publish their own books. We can provide the following services.
- Consultancy on editorial, production and marketing strategies for books at the individual-title and whole-programme levels.
- High-quality and speedy production work (development editing, copy-editing, typesetting, proofreading, artwork, indexing, project management).
- Management of the printing, order fulfilment and distribution of books – or the production and distribution of eBooks and downloads.
Our emphasis in all that we do is on quality. We specialize in working with first-rate academic and professional research organizations and we fully understand their concerns.
Sam Clark and Jon Wainwright are directors of LPP and provide the company’s production expertise. Sam and Jon have been running a successful production company (T&T Productions) since the late 1990s, producing journals and books for many learned societies and publishers, including Princeton University Press, Risk Books and Journals, the Royal Society of Edinburgh, the Edinburgh Mathematical Society and the Applied Probability Trust. They have a wealth of experience in dealing directly with authors on a range of production issues, including copy-editing, figure work, design and printing, and have an excellent team of experienced in-house editors and typesetters proficient in both InDesign and LaTeX.
Richard Baggaley has worked in academic publishing for over thirty years. Before establishing LPP with Jon and Sam in 2010 he worked for Princeton University Press, where, as Publishing Director for Europe, he established and ran the Press’s first overseas office. Before that he worked for John Wiley & Sons managing the programme in business, economics/finance and psychology before becoming Director of Journals Development. Before that he worked for Open University Press, where he was Editorial Director. He has also worked in psychometric test publishing and acts as consultant to LPP on editorial matters.
Our publicity and media management expertise comes from our associate Romesh Vaitilingam.

For printing, order fulfilment and distribution, we can either place work with traditional offset litho printers or with UK print-on-demand suppliers and distributors.
