* Call for Book Proposals

Series on Comparative and Continental Philosophy

The Series on Comparative and Continental Philosophy is seeking book proposals for academic work in the areas of Comparative Philosophy, Continental Philosophy, or Non-Western Philosophy. We welcome submissions from across national origins, experience levels, and disciplinary perspectives. Our publishing process is driven by the quality of the work. Books on niche topics or specialized subject matter are welcome.

We accept proposals for manuscripts between 30,000 and 150,000 words for individual or jointly authored works, or edited collections, and the exceptional PhD dissertation that is rewritten to conform to “book” writing style and genre.

We seek a fresh and full vision with the rigors of thought and imagination, as well as manuscripts of scholarly distinction. We do not seek contributions that would be at home in any number of other traditional academic book series, nor do we want manuscripts from other series because they were not lifeless or tedious enough for them. Authors who cross disciplinary boundaries effortlessly with robust voice, literary style, and imagination are especially encouraged to submit their manuscripts.

Check List of Files to Submit

To submit a complete proposal we need:

  • An Introductory chapter (5-10 pages) explaining the theory and research for the book you are interested in writing
  • 2-3 sample chapters that will be included in the complete manuscript
  • Table of Contents
  • Complete Manuscript Submission Date
  • CV of the author or CV’s of authors or editors involved
  • In preparation your proposal follow the Chicago Manual of Style 15th Edition
  • Use Times or Times New Roman 12 font throughout and double space

If your book is finished you may submit the completed manuscript instead of the Introduction and sample chapters.

Manuscript Submission Process

Step 1 ─ Submit a Proposal

To begin the process, submit a sample chapter or completed manuscript as well as the following:

  • a brief description of the intended audience
  • a summary of the broader significance of the work
  • relevant metadata (title, authors/editors, back-cover blurb, table of contents, bio-notes), and any marketing or promotional ideas you may have

Step 2 Gather Feedback

Once we receive your submission, our editorial team will review your proposal to determine whether it is a good fit for the book series. If accepted, you submit the full manuscript, and we identify reviewers to provide feedback on your work. They may also have their own reviewers.

Step 3 Publish

After positive reviews of your manuscript, we help you through the publication process.

Types of Proposals

The Series on Comparative and Continental Philosophy accepts proposals for single- and multi-author books as well as edited collections. We do not publish theses; however, if you convert your thesis to book format that has something innovative and exceptional to say, we will review proposals for that as well, but we will not review a thesis if sent in before conversion to book form. Please do not waste our time on these requirements.

If you are ready to submit, please send us your proposal files in one email to all of the editors listed below:

David Jones djones@kennesaw.edu
Michael Schwartz
mschwart@augusta.edu
Andrew K. Whitehead awhiteh8@kennesaw.edu
Jason M. Wirth wirthj@seattleu.edu

Once received, your proposal is reviewed by our Proposal Review Committee and we will let you know our decision.
