Submission Guidelines

University of Toronto Press publishes a wide range of books for academics, researchers, students, practitioners, and general readers.

To submit a book proposal to UTP: Find an Acquisitions Editor


Once you have found an appropriate editor, email them with a brief description of your proposed book and its intended audience. If the editor is interested in considering your book, you will be asked to submit a full manuscript or book proposal for a formal review.

Manuscripts and book proposals will be evaluated by experts in the field. If the reports are positive, the project may be presented to our internal Publishing Committee, followed by our external Manuscript Review Committee, composed of senior scholars at the University of Toronto. Books submitted to specific imprints or series may go through other processes of approval.


Due to the volume of submissions we receive, it may take several weeks for one of our editors to respond to your submission. If you have not received a response in 6-8 weeks, please contact the editor for an update on your submission.

Please do not query more than one editor, as this may slow the process. If your proposed book seems better suited to another editor’s list, it will be passed along to them for consideration.
