REMINDER - 2018 CALL FOR BOOK PROPOSAL SUBMISSIONS: CRITICAL DIGITAL
AND SOCIAL MEDIA STUDIES
Submission Deadline: Monday 12 February 2017 23:00 BST by e-mail to
Andrew Lockett (University of Westminster Press Manager) at
For fullest series details and proposal guidelines see
Critical Digital and Social Media Studies is an established book series
edited by Christian Fuchs on behalf of the Westminster Institute for
Advanced Studies and published by the University of Westminster Press
(UWP). We invite submissions of book proposals that fall into the scope
of the series.
After the publication of five titles in the series we invite submission
of book proposals (adhering to the guidelines set out below) as one
document with one full chapter for books in the range of 35,000-80,000
words. The books in the series are published online in an open access
format available online without payment using a Creative Commons licence
(CC-BY-NC-ND) and simultaneously as affordable paperbacks. We are able
to publish a number of books in the call without any book processing
charges thanks to generous support by the University of Westminster that
covers these fees. Potential authors are welcome to contact the series
editor outside of the initial time frame of this call for book proposals
but should note that priority for funding support for suitable projects
will be given to those proposals meeting the deadline. There is a
preference for the submission of proposals for books whose writing can
be finished and that can be submitted to UWP within the next 6-15
months. In the event of a surplus of strong proposals preference will be
given to single-authored book proposals over edited volumes.
We welcome submissions of a book outline proposal with (exactly one)
sample chapter submitted as one single Word or PDF document. We can only
accept suggestions for books written in English.
