Acquisitions Inquiries

Book and journal submissions

To propose journal articles or reviews

If you are interested in contributing an article or review to an MIT Press journal, please visit and select the journal of your choice. Submission and editorial contact information can be found in the left-hand sidebar of each journal's homepage.

To propose book projects

Please check with the appropriate MIT Press editor before submitting a book proposal. A list of our acquisitions editors and the subject areas they handle appears below. Please contact only one editor about your proposal; if the project would be best considered by another editor, your initial contact will refer your inquiry to that person. Note that different editors have different submission requirements and review schedules. 
Your initial inquiry, which may be sent by post or e-mail, should simply describe, in a few paragraphs, the project, its authors or editors, its primary field, its intended readership, and the contribution it will make or need it will fill. If the editor is interested in the project, he or she may request a more detailed proposal. Please do not send manuscripts, sample chapters, or illustrations unless an editor specifically requests them.
