And many, many others...please contact us with your ideas and questions!
Proposal and Manuscript Submission Process
We invite you and your colleagues to submit a book proposal of approximately 5-8 pages. All proposals will undergo editorial team and/or blind peer review. Proposals should include the following sections:
Introduction and overview: Explain the scope of the book project and explain how it is grounded in and extends the extant educational leadership for social justice research base, broadly conceived. Proposals should be aligned with the purpose of the Information Age Publishing Educational Leadership for Social Justice Book Series.
Summary of contents: Provide a proposed table of contents, brief synopsis of each chapter, and an approximate page count for each chapter, including any references and appendices.
Timeline: The timeline should include initial phases of the publication process that will lead to initial submission of chapters. From that point, accepted manuscripts will undergo editorial and blind peer review.
Please note that while we encourage many kinds of proposals, including textbooks, edited volumes, and full length studies, we expect all proposals to be grounded in appropriate inquiry perspectives. We look forward to hearing from you!
