Book Proposals

Submitting a Book Proposal

The Institute's Publisher is always happy to consider proposals for new titles. If you wish to submit a book proposal, please send the following by email to a.riddell@biicl.org:

  • A short outline of the proposed book and a working title
  • A table of contents
  • A short author CV listing previous research and publications
  • A description of why this title will make an important addition to research in this area and what you consider the market for it will be
  • An estimated timeframe for submission

Proposals will initially be considered in-house. If we are interested in publishing a title based on the details provided in the proposal we may ask for some sample chapters to be sent to external referees. We will try to give authors an indication of whether we are interested in publishing their manuscript within two months of receipt of the sample chapters.

Submitting a Finished Manuscript

If you wish to submit a manuscript for consideration please send the following:

  • A printed copy of the manuscript on A4 paper
  • An electronic version by email to a.riddell@biicl.org

Your manuscript will be considered in-house and then may be sent to external referees. We will try to give authors an indication of whether we are interested in publishing their manuscript within two months of receipt of the finished work.
