Call for Book proposals


CHAM promotes a permanently open call for books destined to the national and international scientific community, within the scope of its Studies & Documents and CHAM E-Books Collections.

The submission of a proposal requires the assurance that the manuscript (book/chapters) is an original work that has not been published previously and is not currently being considered for publication elsewhere.

Proposals should fall within the disciplinary fields and research themes that are currently addressed by CHAM. The submission of studies adopting comparative, multidisciplinary, transnational and/or cross-cultural approaches is strongly encouraged.

The participation of CHAM researchers as editors and/or authors may not exceed 30% of the total number of collaborators in each proposal.

Only manuscripts that comply with "CHAM Submission and Style Guidelines - Studies & Documents and E-Books Collections" and are written in Portuguese, English, French, Spanish and/or Italian will be accepted. Preferred book length is between 45,000 and 100,000 words (including footnotes, appendices, images, attachments, and bibliography).

Proposals will be initially pre-assessed by CHAM Publishers' Director and Collections' Scientific Coordinators regarding originality, relevance, methodological soundness, currentness of the bibliography, writing style and pertinence of the theme to the Collections' profile. Manuscripts deemed suitable will be then subjected to double-blind peer-review to assess their quality and scientific merit.

All publications will be available in open access in RUN - the Repository of the University NOVA of Lisbon, under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License (CC BY 4.0).
