How to publish with DMLS
Durham Modern Languages Series welcomes proposals for new academic publications in cultural and linguistic studies for books of between 40,000 and 100,000 words. DMLS titles are published by Manchester University Press.
The scope of the Series is defined by the six language areas in which teaching and research are carried out in the School of Modern Languages and Cultures at Durham University: Arabic, French, German, Hispanic Studies, Italian and Russian. The Series is intended to reflect the wide range of research interests in the School: literature from the Middle Ages to the present, cultural and intellectual history, critical and cultural theory, film and other visual culture, theatre and performance, gender and sexuality, language and rhetoric, translation and interpreting. Our publications are primarily aimed at an academic market, intended to disseminate the results of important, innovative research and to support undergraduate and postgraduate study. We also aim to make the fruits of academic work accessible to a wider audience.
Proposals submitted to DMLS are initially evaluated by specialists at Durham, and all proposals are subject to rigorous peer review. A subsidy may be required for some books, especially if they are long or include numerous illustrations. Manchester University Press's marketing and promotion plans are tailored for each book in consultation with the author, aiming to achieve academic impact and maximize sales to institutions, booksellers and individuals.
We welcome proposals for original monographs and critical editions, especially of texts likely to be used for university courses. We also publish collections of essays, proposals for which should be able to demonstrate the thematic coherence and clarity of focus of the proposed volume.
