Manuscript Preparation Guidelines
Once a project has been accepted for production, we require that all final manuscripts, disks, and artwork be prepared in accordance with certain specifications, in order to ensure that your work proceeds smoothly and efficiently through editing and production. Incomplete and/or poorly prepared manuscripts may be returned to you, delaying the publication of your book.
Please download and read our Guidelines for Authors carefully before submitting your final manuscript. Note that these instructions—including those pertaining to the preparation of art and disks—apply to edited volumes as well as single-author works. Please share these guidelines with your contributors as necessary.
