Prospective Authors

Interested in publishing with Baylor University Press?

Baylor University Press employs a rigorous evaluations process for assessing proposals for publication. We encourage authors to contact us before preparing and submitting a proposal. An email to our acquisitions team at [email protected] will yield a timely response indicating the Press’s interest. After this initial exchange, we will ask for additional materials needed as the evaluations process unfolds.

The evaluations process differs from press to press. At BUP, we hope to be as straightforward as possible so that scholars can quickly determine whether or not we are the best fit for their published research.

For information on how things work at BUP, see our Guidelines and Process information.

If you are interested in submitting a proposal for consideration, read our Proposal Requirements. However, we strongly urge you to contact us directly before submitting a formal proposal.

If you are proposing to us a revised thesis or doctoral dissertation, please read our Revisions Checklist for Doctoral Dissertations.
