Demystifying the Book Publishing Process & Connecting with UC Colleagues

December 15, 2020 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm  |  Virtual Event


UC Press editors will offer insight into the academic book publishing process. The presentation will include: choosing the right publisher; preparing a book proposal; how the peer review and Editorial Committee process works; revising your manuscript; and working with publishers to promote your book.

The session is intended to be interactive and questions are welcome.

Following the presentation, we will host breakout rooms with editors based on field interests. This is also an opportunity to connect with faculty and graduate students who share similar intellectual interests. When you sign up, please select a breakout room. If your area is not represented in the breakout session, please let us know your specialization.
