‘Getting Published: Monographs’, recordings of latest Society event for early career historians

2 July 2024

Audio and video recordings of the Royal Historical Society’s latest event — ‘Getting Published: A Guide to Monograph Publishing’ — are now available.

This panel discussion (held on 14 June 2024) brought together publishers, series editors and historians to discuss the process of transforming a History PhD into a first monograph. Topics included a guide to the publication process, the differences between a PhD and book, choosing a publisher, revising a manuscript, and how to work with your publisher.
