►Policy Note:  We do not make publishing commitments or contracts with authors prior to completing a review of the full, finished manuscript, and we do not review proposals that are currently under consideration by other presses or publishers.

To have your manuscript considered for publication, please submit an Abstract, Table of Contents, and Sample Chapter along with author bio or CV via e-mail attachment to: seas@yale.edu.

If approved by the Editor, the full manuscript will be requested for comprehensive review by selected external reader(s). The review will help to determine whether the manuscript is appropriate for publication, and/or if it is publishable pending specified revisions.

Once accepted for publication, manuscripts are copy-edited for grammar and presentation, changes are proofed and approved by the author, and the text is typeset and prepared for press. Please plan to submit your materials electronically in accordance with the >Guidelines for Typesetting and Layout (see also Metaglyfix Guidelines and Tips).

Authors and editors should also refer to >SEAS Monograph Styles for an idea of what to anticipate, should your manuscript reach the typesetting stage.

Please note that upon acceptance, the author(s) will be required to enter into a publication agreement transferring copyright to the Council on Southeast Asian Studies, Yale University. Except in exceptional circumstances and by prior negotiation, royalties are not paid.

Authors will be responsible for acquiring any and all necessary permissions for use of previously published or copyrighted material. See Permissions: Instructions for Authors
