For Authors...

Welcome to Equinox. This page is intended to help existing Equinox authors (those with contracts for books) or prospective authors. If you are interested in contributing to one of our journals, please go to the pages of the journal concerned. If you want to talk about a new journal or about transferring a journal to Equinox, please email Janet Joyce:

Prospective Authors/New Proposals

Thank you for considering Equinox.

If your project suits one of our series, you should communicate in the first instance with the series editor whose details can be found on the respective series pages of this website.

If your project falls outside any of our series, we are still happy to consider it. Please send us a proposal following the guidelines found in this PDF and send it to the appropriate subject editor. If in doubt, contact Janet Joyce.

We regret we cannot set author purchases of books or journals against royalties.

Marketing Your Book

We welcome suggestions for marketing your book. Please keep an eye on the list of conferences (see website listing) we participate in and if we are not listing something appropriate to your book, send us details. We also produce flyers for mailings or for your own use, so let us know if you need any. Your book will continue to be marketed as long as it remains in print. Contact Val Hall if you have any suggestions:

Royalty Queries

Royalties are paid annually between December and February each year, unless your contract designates otherwise. Please contact Val Hall with any queries
