WHO is invited to submit?
The edited volumes of the Book Series aim at providing a diverse overview of the work of the ECREA membership. At the same time, a degree of openness towards non-ECREA members is also considered to add value to the Book Series. For this reason, at least 50% of the chapters need to originate from ECREA members (individual members, or members through an institutional membership. For the same reason, at least one of the editors needs to be an ECREA member.
Please note that ECREA Executive Board members cannot be editors of the books in ECREA book series, but can serve as authors of the chapters, while the book series editors cannot contribute to the content of the books in the ECREA book series in any way.
The Book Series only allows for edited volumes to be included. Proposals for monographs will not be accepted.
WHAT are we seeking?
We are seeking original, previously unpublished work. ECREA Book Series Publications need to have a very clear theme of focus, which should be related to the key points of ECREA (as described in article 3 of the ECREA statutes - see the ECREA website).
Although the series is open to the wide diversity of disciplines and subjects present among ECREA members, editorial choices will also take into account the potential audience of a proposed book.
What is the DEADLINE for submissions?
Proposals need to be sent to the series editors (by email) before 15 March 2017.
HOW should one submit a proposal or manuscript?
A form to submit a book proposal is available in the document archive of the ECREA website (in folder Public documents). Please note that the proposal should include a detailed abstract of each chapter.

WHO subsidises the publication?
Each year, ECREA subsidises the distribution of one publication to the membership (2nd year individual members and the coordinators of the institutional and associated institutional members). The ECREA Book Series editors will be in charge of selecting this publication. Their selection will be subject to confirmation by the ECREA Executive Board.
Other publications may also be included in the ECREA Book Series. In this case, ECREA will not subsidise the distribution of the book to the membership. The inclusion of the book in the ECREA Book Series will still be dependent upon the decision of the ECREA Book Series editors and the Executive Board.
A more detailed version of the procedure is available at the Bylaws segment of the ECREA website.
