What happens after submission?

After you submit a book proposal to Zed Books, our editorial team will review it and make an initial decision about whether to pursue the project. As an academic press, peer review is a central aspect of our editorial processes and policy. Our peer review system requires considerable resourcing, so we’ll only send out proposals we consider promising.
