University of Guam Press Submissions Guidelines
The University of Guam Press welcomes manuscript submissions from both new and previously published authors. We are interested in academic and literary manuscripts in all genres and fields of study with a preferred focus on Guam and Micronesia. All manuscripts undergo a blind review (meaning both the authors and reviewers are not identified to each other) by a team of expert reviewers selected based on the content, genre and goals of the manuscript. Please note that the review process may take six to nine months.
When a manuscript has been accepted for publication, UOG Press provides the following services:
Authors are actively engaged throughout each stage of the publishing process. They are provided royalties at industry-standard rates.
UOG Press also welcomes proposals for publishing partnerships and provides publishing services to other organizations and self-published authors. These proposals are also reviewed a by a board of expert reviewers.
We would prefer to receive submissions via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If this is not possible, submissions may be sent to:
University of Guam Press, Micronesian Area Research Center
303 University Drive (UOG Station)
Mangilao, Guam 96923
If you choose to mail your submission, the manuscript must be typed. Please be sure that your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address are on the manuscript and that your name is on the back of each piece of art.
All submissions will be vetted by a review board, which will consider the content, subject matter, suitability, and marketability of the manuscript. The author's identity is omitted during the review process to ensure the review is based on the quality of the manuscript. If the work is of sufficient quality for publication, an editor will contact the author. Each manuscript is individually reviewed, usually by two editors and a review board. Thus, the consideration may take six to nine months.
