Meeting History Editors

History graduate students and assistant professors need to meet acquisitions editors of academic presses in order to “shop” their book projects.  They also have to learn how academic presses operate if they hope to publish their manuscripts.

Major academic conferences present great opportunities for learning about academic presses and for making initial contacts with acquisitions editors.

A history graduate student’s piece in the Chronicle of Higher Education offers suggestions on how to meet editors at an academic conference.
