Newfound Press General Submission Information
Newfound Press publishes peer-reviewed works that may have a limited and/or specialized audience. We invite submissions of book length manuscripts, queries about multimedia presentations, and proposals from editors for Newfound Press to host scholarly journals or other serial works. The Press especially seeks works that incorporate multimedia and other types of innovative presentation. Also of particular interest are works with interdisciplinary approaches and those relevant to Tennessee and the Southeast.
Criteria for Publication
The Press seeks content that meets one or more of the following criteria:
• Demonstrates scholarly rigor
• Offers an innovative presentation, particularly involving multimedia
• Contains content and approach of potential interest across disciplines
• Reflects regional relevance
• Merits wide dissemination and preservation, but unlikely to be published by a traditional press because of narrow focus or innovative format
Newfound Press is committed to disseminating peer-reviewed works that may have a limited and/or specialized audience. When manuscripts are received, members of the Editorial Board solicit scholars in appropriate disciplines to conduct peer review.
Newfound Press follows the Chicago Manual of Style for text.
Proposal and Submission Instructions
When manuscripts are received, members of the Editorial Board identify peer reviewers, soliciting scholars in appropriate disciplines to review submissions. Reviewers address questions on the Newfound Press manuscript review form or the Newfound Press manuscript review form for multimedia. The Newfound Press Editorial Board member leading peer review summarizes comments and provides a recommendation about publication. Once Newfound Press decides to publish a work, the author works closely with editorial and production staff.
Works accepted for publication receive processing that adds value to the content by promoting discovery and use. Newfound Press services include consultation, management of the peer review process for one-time publications, presentation design, Web access 24/7, procurement of ISBN and ISSN, application of cataloging/metadata tags according to international standards, marketing, preservation of current and archival files, and collection of use data.
Copyright owners grant Newfound Press non-exclusive rights to disseminate their work in perpetuity. (See sample form.) This arrangement means that others may also publish the work and receive permission from the copyright holder to publish or disseminate in other forms. Newfound Press requires authors and editors to include copyright information with a statement of ownership, an invitation to reproduce content under certain conditions, and a warning about possible infringements. We encourage authors to license their work using a Creative Commons license, particularly a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License.
