Textbook Yet graduate school never prepares scholars for that part of their jobs, acknowledges veteran editor William Germano, vice-president and publishing director at Routledge. From writing and presenting one's manuscript to the various functions and responsibilities of publishers, Germano's Getting It Published: A Guide for Scholars and Anyone Else Serious about Serious Books offers targeted advice about this vital aspect of scholarship to both would-be academic authors and those who've been through the mill and want to make it easier for themselves the next time around.

From Library Journal
Addressing scholars seeking to publish nonfiction, former humanities editor Germano (VP, Routledge) assumes no knowledge on the part of his audience beyond their academic specialties. Suggesting that authors keep publishing procedures in mind while writing, he includes tips on editing, getting permissions for anthologies, and delivering the manuscript. Intended as ready reference (an index is promised), the book is brief enough to skim, which might prove fruitful in other ways. Unfortunately, the book lacks an appendix listing current university presses. Compared with the many overly long how-to-get-published guides for aspiring novelists, this is a concise and readable text with minimal fluff. Strongly recommended for academic and public libraries.
