Cambridge Scholars Publishing–Call for book proposals

Cambridge Scholars Publishing are inviting proposals for academic books and edited collections in Humanities and Social Sciences. We publish in all major fields of academic research and practice, including Humanities and Social Sciences, Physical Sciences, Life Sciences, and Health Sciences. To submit a book proposal, please visit our website, where you can complete a Book Proposal Form and read our publishing guidelines .

Since our foundation in Cambridge, UK, more than 20 years ago, Cambridge Scholars Publishing have grown to be one of the world’s leading scholarly book publishers, with more than 700 academic books due to be published this year and a backlist of more than 8000 titles. Please note that we are fully independent, and are not affiliated to, or associated with, the University of Cambridge or Cambridge University Press in any way.

We always aim to put our authors first in everything we do, and we bring that ambition into our publishing operations with our Author Promises. There are no charges for publication, and we offer an escalating royalty payment—the more titles sold, the higher the royalty rate, from the first copy sold. We sell to more than 100 countries and to the world’s leading research and study centres, via our international distributors including Amazon, EBSCO/GOBI, ProQuest and Ingram.

We promise fast, fair, and friendly proposal review—normally a decision is made within one month. If we do offer publication, your book will appear in handsome hardback, as well as eBook formats, for our academic library customers. We also invite authors to apply to contribute to our unique Book in Focus series.

An article which features Cambridge Scholars and some of its authors has been published in the online publishing magazine No Shelf Required. If you would like to know more about our approach, and hear the experiences of some of our authors, you can read it here.

We hope you will consider proposing a scholarly book for publication with us, and I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards, 

Adam Rummens
