Desktop publishing (DTP)

Typesetting of a book or other work using a personal computer (and often its printing on a laser printer). DTP software has made it far easier for authors to self-publish their works to a professional standard.

Even high-end DTP software like Adobe InDesign, previously only used by typesetters, designers and other publishing professionals, is now within the reach of academic authors due to campus-wide licensing deals offered by companies like Adobe.

This definition is extracted (and expanded on) from the book Getting Published: A Companion for the Humanities and Social Sciences by Gerald Jackson and Marie Lenstrup.
