Author Guidelines

Windsor Studies in Argumentation welcomes the submission of book proposals on the theory of argumentation -- understood broadly, in a way that encompasses logic, informal logic, rhetoric, dialectic, and related fields. All documents should be submitted electronically though this site. Potential authors should upload a prospectus, and chapter manuscripts from the work. Any questions about the submissions can be directed to the editors-in-chief.

Please keep a copy of your submission. WSIA is not responsible for any lost manuscripts, proposals, photos, artwork or other submissions.

Submissions should be formatted according to the Chicago Manual of Style, 16th Edition. Authors may refer to the Chicago Manual of Style Quick Guide for guideance.

Before any book can be accepted for publication by WSIA, it is evaluated by our editorial staff and ultimately must be approved by WSIA editors. All submissions will be sent out for blind review by experts in the relevant area. Authors will be provided with the results of those initial reviews in a timely fashion. Where substantial revisions are requested, manuscripts will be subject to a further round of review if the editors so judge. While WSIA is an open access monograph series, authors will NOT be charged any publishing fees.
