Proposals for Publication
Prospective authors should submit the following material, using the online form accessible below:
a proposal of around 500 words outlining the scope of the proposed volume, its place within current scholarship, and its potential readership
any other relevant information or material in support of your application (e.g. a draft of the introduction or a chapter)
Please note that:
We do expect authors to work from the outset of any agreed undertaking using the approved MÆM styleguides (MHRA), document templates and software (generally Microsoft Word, and for Editions Classical Text Editor, which MÆM authors may purchase at considerable discount).
We will not consider a proposal which is also under consideration with another publisher.
We require any monograph that we agree to publish (subject to successful completion) to be ready for final approval and publication no later than four years from the original agreement.
Festschriften: whilst the Society acknowledges the importance of such volumes, and is willing to act as publisher for these volumes hors série, nevertheless editors must cover all publication costs through the usual form of subscription. We will not be considering further festschrift proposals until the beginning of 2019.
Process of Review
Each proposal is submitted to the monographs committee who decide on its suitability; after this, a completed draft from the author is requested, which is then sent for anonymous peer review; after any emendations suggested by the peer reviewer have been carried out, the volume is usually submitted for final approval (and potentially, suggested changes) to one of the editorial committee. Final decision to publish rests with the Society's trustees.
