Identifying Potential Publishers

There are a number of resources that you can use to identifying potential publishers for your book.  Some areas to review are listed below.

  • Use your library catalog, WorldCat, Amazon, or other catalog to search for books related to your topics.  Review books to identify popular publishers.
  • Review recommendations from colleagues, mentors, or tenure and promotion guidelines to identify appropriate publishers.
  • Look for Calls for Proposals for book chapters (Be sure to review the publisher and editor to avoid deceptive publishing practices)
  • Review book proposal guidelines for well-known publishers, especially in your area of research.
