What will happen next?


Our Editorial team will evaluate your proposal and we will then invite feedback from academic specialists in this area. We normally solicit 2 or 3 reports from academics and ask them to give us independent advice on the content, quality and potential market based on your proposal or manuscript. You should expect this process to take roughly 6-8 weeks (although this can take longer out of term time or at busy times).

Editorial Board

If the reviews have been positive and you are keen to proceed, our editors will submit a formal proposal for the consideration of our Editorial Board.

The Final Stage

Provided your proposal is accepted, we will then issue a draft contract. Once we have agreed on terms, you should sign and return the contract with an agreed date for delivery of the draft chapters or manuscript. Upon delivery, your book will be handed over to a Production Editor who will oversee the copy-editing and production process. We will then publish, market, and sell the book.
