5 Steps to Submitting an Applied Linguistics, Teacher Training, or Teacher Resource Proposal

Please do not send PDFs or Office 2007 files.

  1. Write a 25- to 50-word description of your project. Submit a project rationale or a general overview of the project—the theory behind it and its goals and also include a section outlining your book's unique features. If you are proposing an edited volume, please supply a list of contributors and their affiliations.

  2. Describe the book in terms of audience. Could it be used in graduate or undergraduate courses, for example?

  3. List (and analyze where appropriate) the project's competition in the marketplace—the competing books' strengths and weaknesses and the niche your project fills.

  4. Please send as many chapters as possible, plus the Introduction. If any chapters have been previously published, please so indicate. If you are submitting an edited volume, please send all chapters.

  5. Tell us how to get in touch with you—address (with street address so UPS can find you), telephone number, fax number, e-mail address. You may also submit your CV.
