The Davies Group, Publishers is an independent scholarly press, publishing books of interest to readers both within and outside of the academy.Our goals are to publish, and keep in print, works by both emerging and established scholars who strive to make, or have already made, significant contributions in their respective fields. We publish both original works and previously published works that have not been readily available. In order to insure that the works we publish are widely accessible we will utilize a wide variety of formats such as print, electronic, and on-demand technologies.The fields in which we publish are those normally associated with the humanities and social sciences, and our authors occupy academic positions at international institutions of higher education. We seek books, monographs, collaborative volumes, edited collections comprised of both previously unpublished and published contributions, translations, and selected works that have been allowed to go out of print.We currently have two additional imprints under our wings: Noesis Press, and PenMark Press.
Noesis Presswill publish edited and peer-reviewed shorter monographs, works designed to fit within the space that lies between the “too-long-for-a-journal article” and “too-short-for-a-traditional monograph” format. Professor Victor E. Taylor, Director of Academic Publishing for The Davies Group, Publishers, with the assistance of an editorial board (TBA), will review proposed series and individual manuscripts for acceptance.We are calling for submission of closely-focused forms of the monograph that present a core argument. Submissions should express ideas as clearly as possible, avoiding discipline-specific terminology in order to connect the work with an academic audience consisting not only of colleagues and peers in the author’s own discipline, but also members of other disciplines, and educated laypersons.Noesis Press is committed to establishing this shorter form of scholarship that is every bit as intellectually viable and important to the dissemination of knowledge as more traditional formats. All projects will be subjected to rigorous peer review, with final works issued in both print and digitally.We welcome queries from individuals in the humanities and social sciences—especially philosophy and history—who are interested in one or more of the following: performing peer review, forming or joining an editorial board, suggesting a series and/or serving as a series editor for these shorter works.PenMark Pressis a destination for creative projects that do not fit within the framework of traditional scholarly press offerings: collections of original essays from a single author, edited collections of previously unpublished essays, and creative and narrative nonfiction. Submissions will be accepted only from academics currently teaching at accredited colleges and universities (or emeritus faculty from those same institutions).
