3. target audience,
4. justification how & why the readers would find the book (if published) as a valuable reading,

7. and any other information which is worth to be notified to us pertaining to that proposal.
While submitting a book proposal, the authors need to refer and adhere to our editorial policies which are re-produced herein below for the ready reference of the authors.
How a proposal is selected?
Once our editorial office receives a proposal, the same is assigned to a content evaluation team for a word on the proposal's suitability for our content inventory. If found suitable, we convey our decision to the author to complete follow-on formalities i.e. signing authorship-cum-publishing agreement (provisional), copyright declarations, provision of full-text content, review timeline, etc. Once the full-text is reviewed and accepted for its publication, the signed provisional authorship-cum-publishing agreement becomes final and operative. And the book editing and publishing is undertaken by our content publishing department.Also read Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) for Authors
