Submitting your manuscript

If you’re working on a book for us and we’ve requested a full manuscript, these are the resources you need to submit your manuscript in the proper formats. Please note that it is ESSENTIAL to follow our guidelines. 

We are a not-for-profit organization. That means that we rely on the generosity of volunteers to create our publications, and keep the prices of our publications low. That is why it is important that you submit your manuscript using the chapter templates provided below and following our exact guidelines. Otherwise, any aberration could delay the publishing process for months, while we free up volunteers to fix your mistakes for you. 

If your chapter does not conform to our guidelines, we can reject your submission or even annul our contract. So please read everything carefully before you submit.
