Publish With the Academy

All publication projects sent to the Academy Books Publishing Team for consideration undergo a preliminary review process. This review includes a peer review and market analysis. Reviewers are asked to comment on the title's topic, coverage and marketability. The information requested here helps reviewers make an informed decision.

In addition to answering the questions, please attach a table of contents or topical outline. If possible, include a copy of a representative chapter.

Are You Considering a Book Publishing Project?

We, in the Book Publishing Group at the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, would be happy to talk with you about your project idea and suggest you complete the Publishing Proposal Form. The application will help you really think through your project idea before you commit time and energy to its creation. After answering the questions in the proposal form, you can do either of the following:

  • Call the Academy's acquisition editor or publisher to talk about the project and get our feedback. Some of the questions we ask include: Is the scope appropriate for the topic? Does it really serve the target market? Is the plan practical and feasible? Are the sales opportunities sufficient to support the project?
  • Complete the proposal form and send it to Please be sure you include a proposed table of contents and, if possible, either a sample chapter or a writing sample, as well as author bios, etc.

We will make every effort to respond to your proposal within six to eight weeks. We look forward to working with you on future Academy publishing projects.
