Proposals are assessed by the series editors and the publisher on academic and economic viability. You will receive an answer about the (provisional) acceptance or the refusal of your proposal within 6 weeks of submission. If your proposal is accepted, your final manuscript will be reviewed by the series editors and by an additional expert reader in the field. This review process may take 6-8 weeks after submission of the final manuscript depending on the availability of reviewers. Based on this review process of your final manuscript, your publication will be accepted or refused, or you may be asked to make some necessary changes.
Once your manuscript is accepted for publication, the publication date will be set by the series editors and the publisher to tie in with the publication schedule of the series. The production process from accepted manuscript to book will normally take 4-6 months.
