| Guidelines for Authors | About Wall & Emerson |
The business of Wall & Emerson,
Inc. is to publish textbooks for colleges and universities in certain subject
areas. We are interested only in texts that would serve as required
reading for courses with steady and predictable enrollments, primarily at
the undergraduate level. The subject areas that we are pursuing at
present are: adult education, the history and philosophy of science and
technology (including science and technology studies), and English as a
second language. We will also consider texts in mathematics, industrial
engineering, and engineering economics, provided that they have a unique
point of view.
We do not publish books of fiction,
poetry, other works of general interest, nor
books for a professional or scholarly market. Our books are tied to
specific courses and specific audiences.
Prospective authors should send a
description of their proposed work, a tentative table of contents, a
sample chapter or two, and their curriculum vitae. Also we would
appreciate any information that can be provided about the potential
market for the work — the course for which the work is intended, where
such courses are taught, what books now serve the same courses, and how
the proposed text differs from these.
Proposals may be submitted via e-mail,
fax, or regular mail.
