We support open access publication of books, journals, conference proceedings, short-form monographs, and data journals, and we are always open to proposals in other publishing formats. Our subject scope reflects the broad range of disciplines supported by our parent Universities, including arts and humanities, social sciences, science and technology, engineering, health sciences, and medicine. While we are jointly run by the Universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York, we welcome proposals from across the wider academic community.
If you would like White Rose University Press to consider your project, please fill in the project submission form and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Were happy to discuss and advise on your proposal before submission.
Once your proposal has been received it will be reviewed by a member of WRUP staff to ensure that it is within scope, and will then be sent for independent external peer review. It will then be reviewed by our Editorial Board, comprising senior academics from across the partner Universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York.
If your proposal is approved we will agree a publishing contract with you, and provide you with advice and support to deliver the project. Book manuscripts will go through a final round of expert peer review before a final publication decision is made by the Editorial Board.
