Trends in Scholarly Publishing: Books


Fordham Press in Collaboration with Faculty of Arts and Sciences and Office of Research

"This seminar is designed to elicit and try to address the questions facing academic authors as they go about placing their first scholarly books. Editors from leading university presses as well as an expert in academic book publishing will give an initial presentation offering a general overview of scholarly publishing, then focus on suggestions about how to choose a publisher and, above all, how to put together a proposal packet and its all-important cover letter. In addition, as the definition of the monograph changes in relation to open access platforms, the panelists will also address what this uncharted model means for established and emerging scholars."
