How to Propose a Manuscript
Before you submit your work
Take time to read our Book Proposals document which you can find in the downloads listing below.
Contact one of our acquisitions editors
Once you have read the "Book Proposals" document, and feel you can submit a manuscript, you should contact one of our acquisitions editors. Please contact the editor whose remit most closely matches your manuscript's subject.
A note on peer review
The majority of Brill's books are published in established series, headed by academic or specialist editorial boards.
Your completed manuscript will undergo a thorough peer review. A decision on your proposal is normally made within three months by the acquisitions editor responsible, on the basis of the peer-review reports and the advice of the editorial board.
