Combine Your Technical Expertise with the Experience and Reputation of ASTMs New Publications Program
by Kathy Dernoga
In addition to developing and publishing standards, ASTM International also has a successful book series of manuals, monographs, data publications and software products. And you can be part of it. If you have an idea for a book based on any of the many technical areas covered by ASTMs committees, we want to hear from you.
As a developer and user of ASTM standards, the idea for the next technical book from ASTM may be closer than you think. You may feel that users of standards would benefit from a more comprehensive explanation of those standards, a user perspective, or advice on the interpretation and application of a group of standards. Consider your own needs and ask yourself, Whats missing? Why isnt there a book on
? Why not develop software to do this? or I followed the standard but how can I find out what to do next?
By considering questions such as these and sharing your answers with us, you can enjoy the advantages of publishing with a respected, world-renowned technical publisher with worldwide promotional and distribution channels. In the ASTM International publishing program, we solicit manuscripts, seek out seasoned authors, and review proposals for new content, unique applications, and the best delivery options. ASTM has outstanding relationships with its authors and editors, offering competitive royalty rates, and a professional staff to assist you.
If you have an idea for a new publication, please send a brief description to ASTM. Our experienced staff can help you develop your idea. Proposals typically include:
Provide your qualifications; they will add credibility to the publication
List the topics you plan to cover and organization of contents
Estimate the number of pages, photos, tables, or other needs
Provide the topic, purpose, and unique attributes of your proposal
Explain what unique approach or content makes your book appealing
Describe the audience that will benefit
Provide projected startup and completion dates
We hope this inspires you to send in a book idea or tell a colleague about this opportunity. We look forward to hearing from you and adding your name to our list of prestigious authors. //
