We are happy to announce the return of a special feature on our blog:
“How to Work with a Scholarly Press”
You may have noted that in the last year we have occasionally featured posts specific to working with an academic publisher. These posts have examined topics like submitting a proposal, the importance of word count, preparing the final manuscript, and attending conferences.
This year we are moving from the occasional post to an actual blog series, continuing to cover a variety of practical topics—both general and specific— across all aspects of publishing with advice from our commissioning, desk-editorial, and marketing staff as well as from our authors and series editors. Our hope is to educate authors on practical issues with working with a press and to empower them to deliver better and more complete proposals and manuscripts. In general, we aim to address two new topics per quarter—the first two to appear online before the end of March.
You will be able to find these posts (new and old) under the category “Author Advice.” We will also be announcing the appearance of new posts through status updates on Facebook and Twitter, so be sure to friend and follow us on those sites.
If there are any particular topics you would like to see reviewed, please let us know by leaving a comment.
