WRUP accepts proposals only via the appropriate proposal form (below). This gives us a detailed overview of the project that we can share with peer reviewers and the WRUP Editorial Board. The form contains lots of guidance around completing the various sections, but in general it's best to consider the following:
We're happy to discuss general enquiries and advise on proposals before submission.
If you would like White Rose University Press to formally consider your project, please download and complete the appropriate form and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
