The Scholarly Publishing division publishes books for scholars, students, faculty and the informed reader in the humanities, social sciences, and business. We welcome the addition of new authors with innovative research to our list.
Please include the following in your proposal:
Please do not submit a manuscript unless you have been requested to do so by your editor and please ensure you keep all originals.
Because of the volume of submissions we receive, it may take several weeks for one of our editors to respond to your submission. If you have not had a response in 6 to 8 weeks, please contact the editor for an update on your submission. Proposals submitted by mail should be sent to:
Editorial Department, Scholarly Publishing
University of Toronto Press
10 St Mary Street, 7th Floor
Attention: (relevant editor's name)
Please note: we do not publish new fiction, poetry, or conference proceedings.
If the editor is interested in considering your book, you will be asked to submit your manuscript for more formal review. Manuscripts will be assessed by experts in the field. If the reports are positive, the manuscript may be presented to our internal Publishing Committee. Manuscripts in humanities and social sciences approved by this committee are then submitted for the approval of our Manuscript Review Committee, an external committee consisting of senior scholars from the University of Toronto. Approved proposals and manuscripts in business are submitted to the Rotman/UTP Publishing Advisory Board, an external committee consisting of senior academics from the Rotman School of Management.
