Submit a CES Proposal
Submitting a Proposal
The Submission Process
- Create your Proposal. This must include:
A complete book proposal (see guidelines for layout and the criteria by which the proposal will be judged)
CV of author(s)/editor(s)
One of two sample chapters
Send your proposal to all three of the CES Editors
The proposal is then sent to an independent academic reviewer in order to get advice on the quality, conent and marketability of the book. This process normally takes 8-12 weeks but can be longer.
If the reviews are positive and the project is endorsed by the Series Editors, the proposal is then sent to Routledge for final approval
What happens if my proposal is accepted?
- If your proposal is accepted you will receive a draft contract, which you sign and return to Routledge. The contract includes an agreed date for the delivery of the manuscript.
- Once the book has been written and delivered, you will liaise with a desk-editor at Routledge over the copy-editing and production process.
- Routledge will then publish, market and sell the book as part of the CES Series.
