We welcome submissions and queries about publication

AcademicaPress is an independent scholarly press specializing in monographs, revised dissertations, primary sources, bibliographies, textbooks, and other books reflecting scholarship in the humanities and social sciences. Our imprint, Maunsel & Co., specializes in scholarly research in Irish studies.

Academica seeks to publish the very best research monographs and studies produced by the international academic community. We are particularly interested in reviewing works in social science, literature & language and literature, and Irish studies. Our titles are peer-reviewed and published without subsidy.

We base our acceptance policy upon peer reviews of submitted works. After approval, however, Academica differs significantly from other publishers. Most academic presses are discouragingly slow to process an accepted work. There are many reasons for this, but the upshot is that scholars, particularly in the social sciences, frame their projects in terms of half-decades. We usually publish within nine to twelve months after acceptance. Our short runs lead to a high number of books published annually through our own facilities. Thus, quality and prompt production are re-introduced to scholarly publishing.

We invite our authors to participate actively in the publication of their work and work closely in cooperation with them at all stages of the publication process. Attractive hardcover printing, wide distribution, and author cooperation are central in developing an important list of scholarly monographs. Please send us the manuscript proposal form to get the process started.

Our website is designed to acquaint you with our recent as well as our older research literature. We are, as always, actively peer reviewing material submitted by the international scholarly community for possible monograph publication. Please continue to send in proposals using the form on this site. You may also contact us directly at
