Calls for Chapters

We currently offer the following Open Calls for Chapters. Click the links below to see more details. Please note that we do not accept chapters for publication outside of agreed Open Calls.


    A Chapter will normally be between 3,000 and 6,000 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.


    Contributing a Chapter

    Please note that we do not accept chapters for publication outside of agreed Open Calls. Do not send chapters unless they are intended for an Edited Collection, as listed above.

    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.

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

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