Manuscript Submissions

If you would like to submit a book to Columbia University Press, please send a proposal containing a brief description of the content and focus of the book, a table of contents or chapter outline, literature review and market analysis, and professional information about the author, including previous publications.

Below is a list of Press editors, the fields in which they publish, and a link to a description of their publishing program. We suggest you read the editors' description of their lists to determine whether your book is appropriate for our program and the editor most suited to consider your proposal. Please send your query to only one editor, who will pass it on if it is better suited to another editor's list.  If your book is in a field other than those listed, chances are we do not publish in that area.

Authors interested in submitting books for the Wallflower Press imprint should contact commissioning editor, Yoram Allon

You may send this information by email or regular mail. Do not send large files by email. If you have not heard back from us within four weeks, contact us again to make sure we have received your material. Please do not send extensive material such as an entire manuscript unless requested to do so by the editor.

Please note: We do not publish original fiction or poetry, other than translations from Asian languages, and we do not consider edited collections, unless they are specifically designed for course use.

Because of the volume of proposals we receive, and the expense of postage, we are unable to return manuscripts unless you provide a self-addressed, stamped envelope.

Please do not address your inquiry to more than one editor at a time. If the editor thinks that your project is better suited to another editor at the Press, it will be forwarded.
