Submitting a Proposal

We are always pleased to consider new book proposals and manuscripts. Preliminary enquiries are welcome. A full proposal normally includes items such as:

  • A title and/or brief description of each chapter;

Once the proposal has been accepted, the manuscript will undergo the peer review process.

  1. Submission of manuscript for peer review to offer of contract
