Calls for Chapters

We currently offer the following Open Calls for Chapters. Click the links below to see more details. 


A Chapter will normally be between 3000 and 6000 words, but these are not strict word limits, and can be discussed with the Editor. Chapters should be written in English.

Ethics International Press is an academic (scholarly) publisher, and Collections which contain Chapters will primarily serve an academic market (research, study and teaching). Chapters should therefore be presented in a style and language which fits an academic audience, which includes full and proper referencing. We do not specify a reference style.

Contributing a Chapter

Chapters should be sent in an editable format, such as Microsoft Word, and be complete, and free of spelling and grammar errors. A submitted Chapter should be accompanied by an Abstract (summary) of 250 to 500 words. This should be included as part of the same document. Authors should also send, separately, a copy of a CV.

Proposing a chapter

If an author wishes to propose a chapter, please send an Abstract (summary) of 250 to 500 words, and a CV.

What happens next  

Collection Editors will review a proposed or contributed Chapter for suitability. Normally, the review will state:

  • acceptance for publication, as is or with minor revisions;
  • the opportunity to revise, and resubmit
  • no offer of publication in the suggested collection, but an offer to refer to a different publication
  • no offer of publication

Accepted Chapter Authors will be asked to sign a short publishing contract.

How to propose or submit a chapter

If an Editor is identified with contact information on one of our Open Calls, Authors can send a proposal or complete chapter to the Editor.

If no Editor is identified, you can send a contribution to us at  Our publishing team will assess and advise whether the Chapter is likely to fit the scope of one of our current Collections; a likely future Collection; or whether it looks to be out of scope.
