Frequently Asked Questions

For Authors

Getting Published

Do you accept unsolicited proposals and/or manuscripts?

Yes, but we look for evidence that authors are aware of the signature areas we currently publish in. We do not, for example, currently publish poetry, biographies or autobiographies, fiction, or juvenile literature, although we have produced books in these areas in the past.

Do you require authors to pay to have their books published?

No, we accept books for publication based on their merit and, if a book is accepted by the Editorial Board, we will publish it at no charge. We do sometimes charge for exceptional items, such as color illustrations or a particular type of premium binding. As a non-profit Press, we also rely on the assistance of philanthropic foundations, corporations, and individuals to subsidize some of our publishing expenses.
