Submission Guidelines

We welcome your proposal and will respond to your inquiry as quickly as possible after consulting with the series editors. A book proposal should include the following items:plant2

  • cover letter introducing yourself and stating your interest in the series
  • detailed description of the work (and projected length), its contribution to the field, and its appropriateness for the Flows, Migrations, and Exchanges series; its relation to similar and competing works; and the intended audience
  • table of contents or proposed chapter outline with a paragraph on the contents of each chapter
  • c.v. or resume

We prefer that authors do not submit complete manuscripts unless invited to do so.

Our policy is to recycle proposal materials after consideration. If you would like these materials returned, be sure to include a self-addressed, stamped envelope.
