If you would like to propose a title for one of our series, please contact the series editors with a brief outline of your proposal. If the area falls within our scope, we will send a proposal form and solicit sample material. If you have an idea for a title that does not fall within the scope of our series, feel free to get in touch anyway. We are interested in hearing about innovative ideas for titles in applied linguistics, language teaching and learning, and professional communication, so we may still be interested in working with you.
