- Obtaining permissions
If excerpts from copyrighted works (including websites) are included in your manuscript, please obtain permission from the copyright holder.
- Final check & submission
Before submission, all parts of your book manuscript should be checked. To support you with this final step, we prepared a downloadable checklist for you.
Revising your thesis into a book
Springer will consider submissions containing material that has previously formed part of a PhD or other academic thesis including those that have been made publicly available according to the requirements of the institution awarding the qualification.
Downloads for your manuscript
In order to help you and to make submitting your book manuscript quick and easy, there are guidelines and 'key style points' (which explain the details of Springer's layout options) and templates. These have been developed and refined with our authors over many years, and we are confident that you will find them easy to use.
