Submission Guidelines for Book Projects

FORUM TAURI Press invites scholars, non-fiction writers to join our rapidly growing group of authors. We will consider unique, innovative, meticulously studied, (preferably) supported with visual or audio-visual material, finished projects in the following fields:

  • History
  • Ottoman Historiography
  • Translations of primary sources
  • Byzantine History
  • Art History
  • Silk Road Studies
  • Turkic History
  • Japanese Studies
  • Asian Studies
  • Archeology
  • Health
  • Cuisine
  • and other fields of popular interest…

Primary language of publication for FORUM TAURI Press is English. Therefore, submissions are expected to be in English.

FORUM TAURI Press will carry out the whole production process of the projects which are accepted for publication. The process covers editorial work, designing, publication, and distribution of the book. Though minor corrections can be made by our editors at the relevant stage, the main responsibility of the English language issues lie with the author. FORUM TAURI Press can offer translation services for the authors, but they are free to choose their own translators or translation offices. FORUM TAURI Press is concerned with the final outcome which must meet the linguistic requirements of English language and pass a native-speaker check.

Although some titles might occasionally be considered for print, FORUM TAURI Press publishes mainly in e-book format.

We value your work and welcome your contribution…
