Once you have submitted your work appropriately (see Guidelines for Submission) and the acquisitions' editor has evaluated your proposal, you will be contacted and informed if your work fits within the parameters of Green Publishing House's current publishing needs.
On occasions contracts can be negotiated based upon the proposal and sample chapters. More typically, Green Publishing House (GPH) will discuss with the prospective authors a timeline for submitting the completed manuscript.
When the manuscript is received it will be evaluated by two anonymous referees. Although we may or may not have occasion to use them, we welcome your suggestions of appropriate potential reviewers who would be in a position to provide an expert and impartial review of your manuscript. Because GPH reviewers are distinguished scholars with many commitments, this part of the evaluation process can be time-consuming, but we will do our best to provide authors with thoughtful and useful responses to their manuscripts within a reasonable amount of time.
The Board of Managers of GPH, which authorizes all publications, requires that every manuscript recommended to its academic divisions have the written support of at least two peer reviewers. Their reports are made on a confidential basis. Because the review process represents an investment of intellectual concern, time, and money, we prefer to be the only press considering your manuscript, at least until we have received the first reader's report. We do understand time and tenure pressures, however, and we are willing to consider simultaneous submissions on a case-by-case basis.
After your book has been reviewed and accepted for publication, your acquisition editor will provide you with detailed instructions on how to prepare the final materials.
Green Publishing House is an author-friendly press that seeks to provide its authors with higher than industry standard royalties rates.
