Manuscript and book proposal guidelines
There are many stages that a book we publish will go through to take it from idea, to script and finally bound copies. As a potential author you submit a proposal to the commissioning/acquisitions editor, giving details of the proposed book. The editor obtains feedback from specialist referees to ensure that the planned book fulfils the needs of the market.
Once the proposal has been approved, your editor will send you a contract. As soon as this is signed and returned, you will be supplied with information to help you prepare your manuscript. We will keep in regular contact with you for updates on your progress, to remind you of the necessity of delivering your manuscript on the agreed date, of writing to the contracted length, and of following closely the guidelines on preparing the text and illustrations.
We will check the number of words and estimate the number of pages in the final book and submit a financial estimate to the publishing meeting, where the print run and selling prices are agreed. Your manuscript will be assigned to a desk editor/production editor, whose job it is to over-see the editorial processes from unedited manuscript to corrected proofs.
When your book arrives from the printer it is quality checked and then our distributors are instructed to "release" the book, allowing orders to be fulfilled. In order to facilitate the reprinting process, it would be a great help to us if, upon publication of your book, you check it thoroughly and send your editor photocopied pages marked with any corrections. We monitor sales closely and depending on the success of the title, a decision is made whether and when to publish a new edition.
Guidelines for submissions to Addleton journals
- We accept unpublished papers and reprints.
- Papers must be submitted through email attachment.
- Submissions must be formatted in MS Word (please ask for a sample paper). PDF
- As our journals will be read by a critical interdisciplinary audience, authors should take care to introduce clearly disciplinary jargon and theory.
- Ensuring that the submission is as grammatically and stylistically precise and consistent as possible following the rules of English language is the sole responsibility of the author. Submissions will be returned if they fail to meet this conclusion.
- Authors of accepted material assign Addleton Academic Publishers copyright to (re)publish the text both electronically and as printed matter and to make it available in an electronic archive. Authors of previously unpublished papers may reprint their work as long as our journal is clearly acknowledged as the original source of publication.
