All final manuscripts (and ideally, drafts of manuscripts) will conform to Bucknell University Press formatting standards. The following considerations are specific to essay collections and should be considered in addition to the usual formatting standards for all manuscripts.
Proposals for edited collections often look quite different than proposals for monographs. They should include the following:
Preparing Your Manuscript
As you begin to compile your manuscript, it is useful to communicate with your contributors as early as possible to distribute the formatting standards. This saves valuable time in having to revise each individual essay when you initially prepare your manuscript for its first reading.
It is also useful to share your timeline for publication with your contributors so that they are aware of important deadlines.
Now is the time to ask individual authors to secure permissions for images, which can take a few months to acquire, and to hire or request an excellent proof-reader to review the essays and notes. It is particularly important to have your manuscript proof-read thoroughly and professionally to ensure that all notes and particulars conform exactly and consistently to the formatting standards.
