Submission of Academic and Scholarly Work

We are continuously looking for new book submissions. Our editors will consider all social sciences books. We encourage in particular books that focus on Eastern Europe, Western Balkans, and European politics and societies in general.

Globic Press is committed to maintaining the highest standards of quality in all areas in which we publish, so we have just a few questions for you that will help us in evaluating your proposal.

Why will someone want to read it? Is there a particularly timely nature of the subject area? What are the specific benefits of your book? These will be key selling points, so be precise.

Now describe the contents of your book in plain English. Be as precise as possible, providing both a general overview and a rundown of subjects treated in detail. Indicate how in-depth your coverage will be.

Who will be the audience for this title? Try to avoid falling into the "all things for all people" trap. Specify who will need to read this book, identify industries. Also include information on professional associations, potential courses, and any other items that may help us reach your audience.

If you really want to speed up our process, list other books on the same or related subjects that have been written for the same market. Include all pertinent information (author, title, publisher, date published, price, and number of pages). Then provide a sentence or two to explain how your book is different from (and of course, better than) each.

The Book
Describe your ideas about the physical book: How many pages do you estimate it being? Approximately how many illustrations will be included? Can these be black and white, or is color necessary? How long will it take you to complete the entire manuscript? How is this work tied to your long term career and/or research interest?

The Author
We'd like to get to know you. Please tell us about yourself. Include a recent resume, if available, as well as a list of professional affiliations. Are you a member of any Associations related to the subject matter of the book?

Suggested Reviewers
At times we find it helpful to have the names of one or two people whose expertise or reputation in your field will facilitate our evaluation process. These should not be close colleagues or friends, but peers whose comments about your work you would appreciate having. Please provide names, addresses, and email addresses or phone number if possible.

Rough Outline, Book Materials
Ideally, we'd love to see a finished manuscript. So, please include as much material as you have already prepared, including Table of Contents and any Chapters you may have. If pertinent, it's also a good idea to enclose some illustrations if you can.

Thank you for your time and effort in compiling this information. We hope that the preparation of this proposal has helped you think about your book, and increase your awareness of publishing requirements. We appreciate the opportunity to partner in your success.

You can send this information to us either by email at books @ or by completing the book proposal form online
