Book Publication, MSU Press


Michigan State University Press is the scholarly publishing arm of the university. Consonant with MSU's land-grant mission and its stature as a member of the Association of American Universities (AAU), the Press's primary function is to publish the results of research and intellectual inquiry undertaken by scholars.

A manuscript, prospectus, or query letter may be sent to the Press for consideration at any time. After an initial evaluation by the Press editorial staff, works submitted for publication are subject to peer review by scholars in the relevant field of specialty. In addition, these works will undergo evaluation by the MSU Press Editorial Advisory Board, after which the Press will make a determination of suitability for publication.

MSU Press will market, sell, and otherwise make available its books to scholars, libraries, and to members of the informed reading public. A catalog of the Press's in-print, published works is available on request.
