Routledge are delighted to announce the launch of the Gender and Sexualities in Psychology series!

Do you have a book proposal for our new series, Gender and Sexualities in Psychology

Gender and Sexualities in Psychology 
is a new book series showcasing scholarly work over a wide range of areas within gender and sexualities in psychology, and the intersection of gender, feminism, sexualities and LGBTIQ psychology with other areas of the discipline.Targeted to a broad multi-disciplinary readership, the books are intended for advanced level students, researchers, and academics. 

The series welcomes theoretically and empirically informed scholarship including critical, feminist, queer, trans, social, and intersectional perspectives, and encourages creative and innovative methodological approaches.

Interested in Submitting a Book Proposal?

Routledge invite academics and researchers to submit book proposals for the series. These can be both sole or co-authored, or edited collections, and should be discussed with the series editors and Routledge editor prior to submission. 

The proposal you submit will be the basis on which we judge the book's suitability for publication. Therefore, it needs to be organised in a way that provides the right information to us and to referees. The following notes should help you prepare your proposal, and your cooperation in following these recommendations will ease the task of evaluation.. 

  • We would suggest a proposal between three-to-six pages in length, although this may be supplemented
    by sample chapters if available. Please also include a brief curriculum vitae.
  • A statement of aims, including three to four paragraphs outlining the rationale behind the book.
  • A detailed synopsis and chapter headings with an indication of length and schedule.
  • Comments on the target market.
  • A list of the main competing books.
  • Your background.

Once the Routledge review process is complete and the proposal has been approved, a contract will be offered and writing can begin!
