    How to publish books

    We are open for submissions by academics globally. If you are interested in publishing with us, please download our Book proposal form, fill in the form carefully, and submit the proposal along with sample text/chapters to Anna Vesterinen (anna-mari.vesterinen@helsinki.fi). If you wish to submit a full manuscript, please fill in the book proposal form and send it along with two copies of the manuscript: the first file should include all author details, and the second file should be anonymised (see instructions here). Please note that both versions have to include a table of contents.

    Publishing decisions at HUP are made by the academic board consisting of researchers. See more on HUP’s peer-review policies here.

    How to publish journals

    HUP focuses in publishing already established journals, and we do not currently set up new journals. For existing journals, HUP develops and maintains a dedicated website, which enables authors to submit articles online. Additionally, we provide an infrastructure to transform the journals’ issue archive to a fully electronic and open platform at a low cost. Please note that for journals, some institutional funding is required to make sure the sustainability of the journal, as well as to guarantee that no Article Processing Fees are collected from individual authors.

    If you would like to submit us a journal proposal, please download our journal proposal form and send it to hannu.linkola@helsinki.fi.

    If deemed suitable for HUP’s publishing portfolio by the editorial team and the academic board, the journal proposal will be sent for external peer review to at least two experts selected by HUP. Finally, the proposal will be evaluated by the academic board on the basis of peer-review reports. For further info on our peer-review policies, see here.
