Origination

(1) The work and cost involved in producing a book up to the point of manufacture, including editing, design, typesetting, proofing and indexing (but excluding marketing, which is a cost of sales).

(2) Sometimes conflated with pre-press work.

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. It was first referred to in the blog Getting Published in a post on pre-press processes at a printing works.
