For full details and proposal guidelines see;

Critical Digital and Social Media Studies is a new book series edited by
Professor Christian Fuchs on behalf of the Westminster Institute for
Advanced Studies and published by the University of Westminster Press
(UWP). We invite submissions of book proposals that fall into the scope
of the series.


After the publication of the first title in the series we invite
submission of book proposals (adhering to the guidelines set out below)
accompanied by one full chapter for books in the range of 35,000-80,000
words. The books in the series are published online in an open access
format available online without payment using a Creative Commons licence
(CC-BY-NC-ND) and simultaneously as affordable paperbacks.

We are able to publish a number of books in the call without any book
processing charges thanks to generous support by the University of
Westminster Library that covers these fees. Potential authors are
welcome to contact the series editor outside of the initial time frame
of this call for book proposals but should note that priority for
funding support for suitable projects will be given to those proposals
meeting the deadline.

We welcome submissions of a book outline proposal with (exactly one)
sample chapter but only accept suggestions for books written in English.
