The French Review Book Series (source: F. Assaf)

Submitted by jtamas on 24 November 2014 - 9:19am



This new book series will publish scholarly works in the field of French and Francophone Studies, in the form of authored or edited volumes written in French and/or English. The scope of the book series will cover most of the rubrics of the French Review: Literature, Film, Society and Culture, Linguistics, Focus on the Classroom, Professional Issues. However, this book series is not designed for textbooks or other pedagogical materials. Nor is it designed for creative works (novels, collections of poetry or short stories, etc.).

The objective of the French Review Book Series is not to generate a revenue stream, but to provide the means for scholars to publish worthy projects, which will mainly be distributed to university libraries. During the early stages of the book series, the print runs will be small, and authors will not receive royalties. Authors or editors of published books will receive five free copies.

To be considered for publication, authors or editors should submit a detailed project proposal: a table of contents; an introduction and/or sample chapter; a succinct bibliography; a statement indicating how the book would contribute to current scholarship and what the potential readership would be.

As is the case for the French Review, AATF membership is a requirement, for all authors and editors, for publication in the book series. The technical specifications of the books (softcover, size, font, etc.) will be similar to those of our journal.

For general formatting requirements, consult our online Guide for Authors: <frenchreview.frenchteachers.org/GuideForAuthors.html>. Detailed project proposals should be sent to the Editor in Chief (edward.ousselin@wwu.edu).
