Information for Authors

Please note that the details in this section are for informational purposes only. Before submitting your manuscript, please consult our style guide and the summary below. 

We consider single- and multi-author monographs, as well as edited volumes for publication. Monographs may also be based on dissertations, provided they meet our review standards. Edited volumes may consist of a collection of essays or conference proceedings. 

Authors who wish to submit a manuscript are encouraged to contact the editorial office in advance. Similarly, please let us know if you are planning a conference and are interested in publishing its proceedings, or if you have questions about the types of media that our digital formats can support. 

The steps of the publication process are as follows: 

1. Contact the editorial office and consult our style guide as you prepare your manuscript. We reserve the right to return manuscripts to authors for revision if style and formatting requirements are not met. 

2. The editorial board will review your submission and determine whether it fits the scope of the series. Works that pass board review will proceed to the peer review stage. 

3. Your manuscript will then be evaluated by highly-qualified peer reviewers, in a process that will ideally take 3–6 months. 

4. If your work is accepted after peer review, you may be asked to revise your manuscript. Contract negotiations begin at this stage. 

5. Following contract approval, authors are required to obtain permission—including third party copyright clearance—to use any items (images, text excerpts) obtained elsewhere that they wish to include in their work. 

6. The completed manuscript is then submitted to the press and sent to a copy editor.

7. The layout is then prepared, and the author receives galley proofs for approval. 

8. Free HTML, PDF, and ePub versions, as well as purchasable print-on-demand volumes, will then be published on our website. 

9. The university library guarantees long-term metadata management, archiving, and the discoverability of published works.
