Editorial Directory

Contacts for imprints, book series and journals are specified below.  Some subject areas of special interest are also noted.  McFarland welcomes proposals on a very wide range of subjects, and this list is therefore not comprehensive.  For imprints, book series and journals, the best practice is to send queries and proposals to the listed contact.  For books, feel free to direct your query or proposal to the attention of a specific editor, but it is best emailed to proposals@mcfarlandpub.com so that it is expedited into our proposal evaluation process.

Inquiries for our editorial department that do not propose a book should instead be directed to info@mcfarlandpub.com. Consult our Contact Us page for more options.


Email proposals@mcfarlandpub.com. Please do not submit a proposal to more than one editor.
