Next steps

Edinburgh Diamond has an internal Decisions Group that meets on the second Tuesday of every month to discuss our book and journal proposals and make final decisions. The cutoff date for books and journals to be considered at this meeting is the last day of each month. We will be in touch by the end of the month to inform you of our decision. For example, if you submit in March, your proposal will be considered in April and you will hear back by the end of April.

If your proposal is accepted, we will work with you to get everything we need to publish your book or journal. We will also work with you on an agreed publication date, whether you have a particular one in mind or just want to go with the (work)flow!
