Author Guidelines

We accept PDF for the initial submission. The books will be typeset in LaTeX, so we strongly encourage authors to use LaTeX right from the beginning. You can find our stylesheets in the download area.  If you cannot submit LaTeX files, you may send us files in the OpenDocument format (LibreOffice), Microsoft Word format, or rtf format. Templates are available as well in the download area. Bibliographical information has to be submitted in BibTeX format. 

Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
  • The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another press for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  • The submission file is in the PDF format.
  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines available in the Download section
  • I have contacted the series editor to check whether the topic fits the series
  • I have cleared all copyright issues for all graphics and other elements which were not created by me.
  • I am submitting a book, not a book chapter. Book chapters should be sent to the editor of the book via email.

The names and email addresses entered in this press site will be used exclusively for the stated purposes of this press and will not be made available for any other purpose or to any other party.

Peer Review Process

Book manuscripts are peer-reviewed by at least two reviewers who are selected by the respective series editors. For edited volumes this review may be skipped provided the contributions in the volume have been peer-reviewed and the review process is documented.

A manuscript can be accepted or rejected. There is no revise and resubmit, but rejected manuscripts can be resubmitted after a year. If a book is not accepted 6 months after submission, it counts as rejected.

Please refer to the Guidelines for details of the reviewing procedure.
