For Editorial Teams

Have you identified a potential opportunity for your research group or wider community of practice to publish a monograph series (including single authored works, edited works or collected essays) in an emerging or specialist subject or research area? Contact an Open Scholarship Services specialist at to discuss your new publication.

Get Started

Things to consider before you establish your new monograph series:

  • Standards in professional publishing: Review the Principles of Transparency and Best Practice in Scholarly Publishing (Open Access Scholarly Publishing Association), to ensure your planned publication(s) meet professional standards.
  • Aim of the monograph series: Outline the focus, scope and target audience.
  • Resources needed (staff, time, and funds): Consider the ongoing staff resource needed: e.g. editorial board; reviewers; copyeditors; layout editors; time commitments and any funds etc. The Library can provide guidance in this area.
