Studies in Asian Security Competitive Solicitation of Manuscripts
The Studies in Asian Security series, published by Stanford University Press and sponsored by the East-West Center, has secured a grant to make up to four awards of US$6,000 to US$9,000 each for proposals or manuscripts in progress judged by the committee to be suitable for the series. The series editorial committee is looking for high quality, theoretically oriented single author proposals or manuscripts on Asian security. Edited volumes and doctoral research will not be supported. The awards are open to younger and senior scholars.
The Studies in Asian Security series promotes analysis, understanding, and explanation of the dynamics of domestic, transnational, and international security challenges in Asia. Twelve publications have appeared in the series thus far. Further details on the series including purpose, orientation, advantages of publishing in the series, manuscript length, screening and review process, and recent publications are available at www.eastwestcenter.org/studiesinasiansecurity. The Editorial Committee comprises Muthiah Alagappa, East-West Center, Amitav Acharya, American University, Alastair Iain Johnston, Harvard University, David Leheny, Princeton University, T.V. Paul, McGill University, and Randall Schweller, The Ohio State University.
The final amount for each award will be determined by the editorial committee on the basis of the research required to complete the manuscript and the availability of funds. Awards will be paid in three installments: the first upon acceptance of the proposal, the second upon receipt of the complete manuscript, and the third and final installment upon completion of all work necessary for publication. The completed manuscript should be ready for peer review within 20 months of the award date. Only manuscripts that pass peer review will be published in the series.
Proposals should run 10 to 20 pages, set out the issue, problem, or puzzle investigated, the scholarly and policy significance of the study, methodology employed, likely findings of the study, indication of the target date for completing the book manuscript, and how the research funds will be used. For manuscripts in progress, the proposal should indicate the present stage of the manuscript and when it is expected to be completed. A CV listing relevant qualifications and publications should accompany all submissions. Submissions must be original and not published elsewhere. The series does not accept simultaneous submission to more than one press.
The deadline for receiving proposals is August 22, 2009. Proposals should be sent in both hardcopy and electronic formats. The hardcopy version can be forwarded to: Series Editor, Studies in Asian Security, East-West Center, 1819 L Street, NW, Suite 200, Washington, D.C. 20036, USA. The electronic version should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The series editorial committee will review proposals and notify successful applicants by September 30, 2009.
The awards have been made possible by a grant from the Sasakawa Peace Foundation USA.
