Since 2001 William Germano's Getting It Published has helped thousands of scholars develop a compelling book proposal, find the right academic publisher, evaluate a contract, handle the review process, and, finally, emerge as published authors. But a lot has changed in the past seven years. With the publishing world both more competitive and more confusing - especially given the increased availability of electronic resources - this second edition of Germano's best-selling guide has arrived at just the right moment. As he writes in a new chapter, the ''via electronica'' now touches every aspect of writing and publishing. And although scholars now research, write, and gain tenure in a digital world, they must continue to ensure that their work meets the requirements of their institutions and the needs of their readers. Germano, a veteran editor with experience in both the university press and commercial worlds, knows this audience. This second edition will teach readers how to think about, describe, and pitch their manuscripts before they submit them. They'll discover the finer points of publishing etiquette, including how to approach a busy editor and how to work with other publishing professionals on matters of design, marketing, and publicity. In a new afterword, they'll also find helpful advice on what they can - and must - do to promote their work. A true insider's guide to academic publishing, the second edition of Getting It Published will help authors understand what to expect from the publishing process, from manuscript to finished book and beyond.Oxford University Press, 17, 86 P maps, 248 poetry, 236, 246, 248 print-only, 311- 312 requesting, 236-237 song lyrics, ... 258 pass-through clause, 186 PDF files, 305 Perkins, Maxwell, 117 permanence, of published work, 39 permissions, ... 236-237, 239, 244, 246 charts and diagrams, 248 for collection, 210, 212, 214- 215, 217 completeness, 267 fair use, 233-234, 236, 242, 249, 251, 253 films, 249, 251, 253 a#39;in all formats and for all editionsa#39;, 312 and manuscript delivery, 270, 272 4anbsp;...
