Submitting a Manuscript

In order to submit your manuscript to Liberty University Press for consideration, please complete the following steps:

  • Format your manuscript using our Sample Interior document. Save your manuscript as a .doc or .docx file. Your entire manuscript should be in one document.
  • Review and edit your manuscript carefully one last time prior to submission. All authors are responsible for the factual correctness and formatting of the manuscript, notes, and citations. Carefully follow citation guidelines established by the style guide used most frequently in your field (examples: APA, MLA, Turabian).
  • Fill out our Author Proposal. Attach your manuscript to the proposal and submit the form.
