We take great pride in the quality of the books and content that we publish. If your book doesn’t look good,
we don’t either. If our textbooks aren’t successful in the classroom, we aren’t either.
Let’s talk. Soon.
Do you have a prospectus, a manuscript, or even just a good idea for a book? If so, let’s start a conversation
that could have a very happy conclusion. Our editors are looking to build the most innovative education
publishing program in the field today. Use this link to connect to our prospectus guidelines. Starting the
process is that simple.
Our Review Process
To assure the best possible quality of your book, your manuscript or prospectus will be subjected to a three-stage
The In-House Editorial Evaluation
Our editors will conduct an initial in-house review of your material to evaluate a number of things, including
how well your topic matches our program; the quality of your research and writing; and the accessibility of
that writing for our audience. Given this, it’s important that you’re clear about the mission statement of your
manuscript and that you provide an accurate description of your various audiences.
External Peer Review
Every book published by MEP is subjected to external peer review. We have an extensive list of experts in
all of the subdisciplines in which we publish. More than simply providing a decision about whether or not
to offer publication to prospective authors, reader reports provide valuable suggestions of ways in which
a manuscript can be improved. You are encouraged to take advantage of this feedback to maximize the
appeal of your final text.
The In-House Marketing Evaluation
Our marketing department goes to work once a project passes both stages of peer review. We look at a
variety of factors, such as the ability of the book to be adopted for courses and its library appeal. We’ll
develop a marketing plan customized to your book to maximize exposure and sales.
While we would love to offer to publish every good manuscript submitted to us, sometimes we can’t. Great
content doesn’t always translate to great sales. And you would be as unhappy as we would be if no one reads
your book. In as many cases as possible, we’ll try to help you to find a suitable publisher for your work.
