Publication Services

High-quality writing/editing and graphic design services are fundamental to CDM’s work—as independent services and as part of larger projects. Using best practices for the design and formatting of written communication, our experienced editorial team works collaboratively with clients to produce a variety of publications—from high-level project reports to multi-volume treatment protocols to newsletters, brochures, training material, website content, and peer-reviewed journal articles, among others. An established document management methodology is used to ensure consistency of mechanics, expression, organization, development, and general document readability.

As noted, CDM is known for bringing knowledge to practice, and has extensive experience in knowledge synthesis, resource development, and the dissemination of products for a wide range of audiences. Our organization maintains the award-winning resources that have supported the creation and production of a multitude of print materials for federal agencies from concept through content development.
