The publication of research is a fundamental part of scholarly activity in humanities and social sciences disciplines but the publication process can seem somewhat daunting to first-time authors. How do authors approach publishers and share their work? How do authors choose publishers? What are publishers’ expectations of their authors? This workshop will discuss differences among scholarly book publishers and key areas of collaboration between authors and scholarly publishers such as book proposals, transforming dissertation research into publications, approaches to scholarly writing, and peer review.
