Manuscript Submissions

If you would like to submit a book proposal to Hamburger Edition, please follow these guidelines:

  • We ask you to check before making any submissions whether your text fits our publishing program of specific academic topics.
  • Please send us the title and table of contents, a short prospectus outlining content and methods, and a sample section (preferably the introduction and concluding chapter). If your manuscript was originally a thesis, please also send your thesis supervisors' and reviewers' comments.
  • We are unable to assume responsibility for any material sent to us. Please do not send original materials and retain a copy of everything you send.
  • If you would like to have your manuscript returned to you, please include a self-addressed stamped envelope.

We review all proposals, solicited and unsolicited. However, because of the large numbers of submissions received, this process may take as much as three months. We are also unable to send authors whose book proposals are not accepted a detailed explanation of the reasons for our decision.
