Submitting a Proposal
An academic interested in writing a Green Guide should submit a proposal of four or five pages to the Series Editor. The submission should include:
A proposed title and short (half-page) summary of the aims and scope of the guide.
The main issues to be dealt with in the guide, if possible in the form of a list of topics or sections, with a brief description of each topic.
The main audience for the guide and why it should be of use to them.
A brief statement of the author’s background with special reference to the focus of the guide.
An indication of the manuscript’s length
Any other helpful information helpful to assist the Series Editor in reaching a decision about the suitability of the guide for publication
The Editorial Team will read the proposal and may also seek the advice of other readers. When a proposal seems suitable for publication as a Green Guide, the Series Editor will provide the author with comments, including suggestions for possible changes in content or emphasis. The Editor will encourage the author to prepare a full manuscript, providing him or her with more detailed guidelines about the format to be followed, including layout, headings, font, and methods for citing references. Final manuscripts are submitted in electronic format.
Reviewing the Manuscript
The Series Editor forwards completed manuscripts to two reviewers (including a member of the Editorial team) for their comments on its suitability for publication and their suggestions for changes. The reviews are considered by the Series Editor who makes the final decision about publication.
Copyright and Royalties
Once a manuscript is accepted for publication as a Green Guide, all arrangements for printing, binding, and final editing will be made by the STLHE. Copyright is held jointly by STLHE and the author(s), and STLHE arranges for warehousing, sale, and distribution. Authors will receive 10 free copies of the guide, but no royalties.
