Call for proposals in English Studies and European Literature!

We are now accepting proposals for monographs and edited collections in the fields of English Studies and European Literature. We have already published innovative titles in these disciplines, harnessing the new possibilities of digital publishing to incorporate moving images, links, and sound into the fabric of the text. To interested authors, we offer radical access to a global readership, a serious scholarly peer-review process, full control of copyright under a Creative Commons license, and a speedy publishing service. Our submission form is available here.

Semitic Languages and Cultures
These titles examine and explore Semitic languages and editions of Semitic texts from key scholars within the fields of philology and linguistics.
