Publishing Guides

Find a Publisher

  • Directory of the Association of American University Presses (AAUP, annual publication)
  • Literary Marketplace 2012: Directory of the American Book Publishing Industry: The print guide and an annual subscription to the electronic guide are both quite expensive, but the website also offers options for shorter periods of access.
  • 2013 Writer’s Market (Writer’s Digest Books, 2013): This is of less help for academic publishing than it is for more general interest fiction, non-fiction, and other creative writing genres.
