Proposals for Publication
Prospective authors should submit the following material, using the online form accessible below:

  1. a CV
  2. a proposal of around 500 words outlining the scope of the proposed volume, its place within current scholarship, and its potential readership
  3. a draft of the introduction, and of one or two sample chapters (if a chapter is long, a single chapter will suffice)
  4. any other relevant material in support of your application 

Process of Review and Project Completion

  1. the monographs committee will review your materials and, if deemed potentially suitable for publication, will submit them to an external peer-reviewer for further assessment.
  2. depending upon a favourable report from an external peer-reviewer, a contract will then normally be issued between the author and the Society, and the Society will assign its own Responsible Editor to oversee the project's completion by the author.
  3. before an agreed deadline as set out in the contract, the author will then submit a complete draft of the work, for a second external peer-review; subject to a satisfactory report and completion of any emendations suggested by the peer reviewer, the work will then finally be reviewed one of the editorial committee and, if necessary, further changes requested.
  4. the ultimate decision to publish rests with the Society's trustees.

Please note that:

  1. we do expect authors to work from the outset of any undertaking using the approved MÆM style guides (based upon MHRA style: see, document templates and software (generally Microsoft Word, and for editions Classical Text Editor).
  2. we also expect authors to build any necessary indices as they develop the monograph, rather than at the end, using tools allowing for auto-updating of page references which are built into software such as Word and CTE. 
  3. we will not consider a proposal which is also under consideration with another publisher.
  4. 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.
  5. the Society acknowledges the importance of Festschriften, and is willing to consider their occasional publication hors série.
