The Editorial Board is always willing to advise potential series authors on the submission of proposals. Advice from at least one and usually two experts in the field will then be taken, and considered by the Editorial Board. Books are normally published within a few months of the delivery of the final manuscript to the publisher. Of particular importance is the close guidance and specialist advice given to authors by the relevant member of the editorial board and by the Series’ Executive Editor, Christine Linehan, who has helped over 150 authors, many now very senior members of the profession, to take pride in their first books. All this, together with the work of the publishers, ensures the highest quality of both scholarship and presentation. The Series provides useful Style and Indexing guides for potential authors (below).
The experience of preparing the monograph for publication, which can be daunting for a first-time author, was an entirely positive one, and I received plenty of help and guidance both from my expert reader and my copy-editor. The prestige of the series ensured that the book attracted plenty of reviews. The positive reception helped me to a permanent academic post at Lancaster University.” James Taylor, Senior Lecturer in History, University of Lancaster
