Harvard. Princeton. Stanford. Yale. Cornell. MIT... 

Now Fielding Graduate University joins the list of elite schools publishing under their own university press. Beginning this year, Fielding will publish original scholarly books under the Fielding Graduate University Press imprimatur.

“The purpose of our new academic press is to highlight the excellence of research conducted at Fielding,” said Provost Gerald Porter, PhD.

With two review cycles per year, Fielding invites proposals from faculty and staff across a wide variety of disciplines who wish to publish a book rooted in their scholarship or professional contributions. The first submission deadline is May 15, 2016. Each submission will be reviewed by a panel consisting of one faculty member from each of Fielding’s programs. 

The Fielding Press will be especially receptive to submissions that reflect the university’s commitment to social justice, multidisciplinary and systems approaches, and the creative application of research to produce effective social change.

Since 2013, Fielding has published seven monographs of articles written by our doctoral graduates based on their dissertation research. We’re proud to books of outstanding work by our faculty and staff to our publications.
