Guidelines for submission of a book proposal
Cambridge University Press is always willing to consider new book proposals
in all the major areas in which we publish. If you are interested in submitting
a proposal please follow the guidelines below. Please do not send in a
complete typescript unless you have been asked to do so by an editor.
If you are proposing a textbook your proposal should contain specific
details of the level at which the book has been or will be written, as
well as of the kinds of courses for which it would be suitable.
This proposal should be sent to the relevant editor. It may be sent out for external review or circulated to editorial and marketing colleagues, and so you should not expect to hear back from the editor for several weeks. You will be told by the editor whether your project fits with current publishing plans in a given subject, and if it does, will be asked to submit a complete typescript or sample chapters as appropriate. The review process varies in length depending on the nature of the project, the number of reviews considered necessary to reach a publishing decision, even the time of year of the submission. The review of a proposal and sample material or full typescript will rarely take less than 3 months and should generally not take more than 6 months.
