The University of Arkansas Press accepts unsolicited proposals for scholarly books in the social sciences and humanities as well as nonfiction works of local or regional interest.

To submit a book proposal, prepare a document that includes the following sections and upload it below.

  • Project summary. Briefly summarize the content, focus, organization, and significance of the work. 
  • Audience and market. Indicate the primary audience for the book. Compare it with similar and competing titles in the same field and describe what sets your book apart. Explain how you plan to promote your book.
  • Production. Give the projected length of the work and the number and type of illustrations, photos, maps, or tables. Specifically discuss the timeline for writing, research, securing of rights and permissions, and finalizing all your work. Provide a list of possible funding sources to support publication.
  • Table of contents. Describe the structure of the book by drafting a proposed table of contents.
  • Chapters. Provide at least two sample chapters that are representative of the work as a whole. Sample chapters do not have to be chapters that appear in sequence in the final book. Rather, they should be the chapters that best represent the work and show your writing abilities. Note that sample content is greatly preferred. If none is available, a proposal may still be accepted, but the other elements of the proposal must provide a broader and more detailed overview of the proposed project.
  • Bibliography (for scholarly works). Provide a sample of the bibliography that lists complete references for all works cited in your proposal. Providing a preliminary bibliography for the larger work is also appreciated.
  • Curriculum vitae. 

All proposal elements, especially sample content, should adhere to the specifications in the press's manuscript submission guidelines. Essential help can also be found in the University of Chicago Press's permissions guidelines and art submission requirements.

Sport, Culture, and Society is a series from the University of Arkansas Press that publishes monographs and collections for academics and general readers in the humanities and social sciences. Its focus is the role of sport in the development of community and the forging of individual, local, regional, and national identities. 

Sport is an extraordinarily important phenomenon that pervades the lives of many people and has enormous impact on society in an assortment of different ways. At its most fundamental level, sport has the power to bring people great joy and satisfy their competitive urges while at once allowing them to form bonds and a sense of community with others from diverse backgrounds and interests and various walks of life. Sport also makes clear, especially at the highest levels of competition, the lengths that people will go to achieve victory as well as how closely connected it is to business, education, politics, economics, religion, law, family, law, family, and other societal institutions. Sport is, moreover, partly about identity development and how individuals and groups, irrespective of race, gender, ethnicity or socioeconomic class, have sought to elevate their status and realize material success and social mobility. 

Sport, Culture, and Society seeks to promote a greater understanding of the aforementioned issues and many others. Recognizing sport’s powerful influence and ability to change people’s lives in significant and important ways, the series focuses on topics ranging from urbanization and community development to biography and intercollegiate athletics. It includes both monographs and anthologies that are characterized by excellent scholarship, accessible to a wide audience, and interesting and thoughtful in design and interpretations. Singular features of the series are authors and editors representing a variety of disciplinary areas and who adopt different methodological approaches. The series also includes works by individuals at various stages of their careers, both sport studies scholars of outstanding talent just beginning to make their mark on the field and more experienced scholars of sport with established reputations.

The Ozarks Studies series invites the submission of proposals for scholarly, book-length manuscripts that expand our understanding of the region and in the process contribute to broader disciplinary fields and academic dialogues. Though grounded in a comprehension of the region’s history, the multidisciplinary series also considers manuscripts in literature, religious studies, anthropology, historical archaeology, political science, and cultural geography, among other disciplines. The series accepts proposals for monographs, anthologies, edited collections of scholarly articles or essays, and edited manuscripts based on primary sources. Manuscripts should reflect a familiarity with previous scholarship on the region and its people and engage themes and interpretations relevant to Ozarks studies.
