Submission

Guidelines

Authors will be required to follow a set of standard guidelines for their submitted manuscripts. Guidelines help ensure consistency and ease for reviewers and editors. The submissions checklist forms below will help guide prospective authors through the submission requirements.


Process

Authors interested in submitting work for publication must adhere to the following steps if they would like submissions to be considered for publication by Humber Press.


Contact the Press for an information package.

The package will include access to key resources including:

  • ‘How to’ webinar
  • Submission guidelines
  • Resource materials


Submit online Concept Form

After reviewing the information package, the author can decide to continue the process by completing an on-line Concept Form. This form will enable the Editorial Committee to learn more about the publication and decide whether the Press is interested in publishing the work. The Concept Form is the first step to formalize the work as publishable by the Press and, if approved, will begin the submission process.


If the concept is approved, the author will be notified and will receive a submission checklist.

The author will also be partnered with a liaison person who is a member from the Editorial Committee. The liaison will act as a mentor through the process and will keep the Editorial Committee abreast of the author’s progress. The liaison will also be responsible for recommending two to five professionals with expertise in the publication content to review the work.


The reviewing professionals will each receive a copy of the publication and a standard assessment tool. 

Each professional will determine if the work is ready to publish, in need of revisions or not publishable. Feedback will be coordinated by the liaison between the reviewing professionals and the author. The work and assessments by the professionals will be forwarded to the Editor-in-Chief for review and decision. If the Editor-in-Chief approves the publication, it will move forward to the production phase of development.
