We have learned of your published research and would like to invite you to participate in our publishing program. We also ask that you extend this invitation letter to any of your trusted and recommended colleagues active in this field of research. 

A number of possibilities are available for our cooperation. 

Nova Science Publishers, Inc. is an academic STM publisher founded in 1985 in New York. We publish about 1,500 new books and over 50 journals a year (please visit our website at www.novapublishers.com and Testimonials for a better idea of what we do and how we work). Our readership is primarily research level academia. Our books and journals are sold worldwide, we work with all major booksellers and have representatives and agents on four continents and in most countries. Thousands of our authors, editors and contributors come from prestigious universities from around the globe. Many of our authors have published several books with Nova in the course of thirty years. 

In particular, we welcome two possible avenues of cooperation (you can select one or both and let us know by return email): 

1. Your authorship or editorship of a monograph or edited collection on a topic of your choice. 

The format (monograph or edited collection), approach and the manuscript submission date would be at your discretion. If you are interested, please fill in our Book Idea Form that can be found on this link: Book Idea Form and return it to my attention atn.columbus@novapublishers.com. If your book proposal is accepted for publication, we will send our agreement for your evaluation and signature. Your book will be published in printed and electronic formats simultaneously. 

2. Your submission of one or more original research or review chapter(s) for our upcoming hardcover edited collection (by selected invitation only) tentatively entitled:
