PARADE – Publication and Research in Art, Architectures, Design and Environments
As part of its PARADE initiative AMPS has partnerships with several publishers including Routledge Taylor&Francis, Intellect Book, UCL Press, Libri Publishing and Vernon Press. Books are developed with these publishers through the PARADE and AMPS network of international, interdisciplinary authors brought together through conferences. There are two systems:
- Monographs and edited volumes proposed by individuals.
- Edited volumes developed by the full-time editors of AMPS.
MONOGRAPH / EDITED VOLUME SUBMISSIONS by individuals:
Routledge Taylor&Francis: Research in Architecture Series
Intellect Book: Mediated Cities Series
Cambridge Scholars Publishing: The Arts, Design and Culture in Cities
Vernon Press: The Interdisciplinary Built Environment
UCL Press: Housing Critical Futures
Libri Publishing: Design Practice *
* This replaces the current Housing the Future Series
Highlight Notice: Sociology and Human Geography.
AMPS/PARADE is currently developing specific book series in sociology and human geography with an emphasis on the relationship of these two disciplines with the built environment. Submissions in these subject areas are currently considered as part of the above publication series.
THEMES / CONFERENCES:
Each book series has its own general set of parameters. Within this framework AMPS is developing books through its conference series. It is thus interested in proposals that align with its conference themes:
Spatial Design: Critical Practice in an Age of Complexity
Moving Images – Static Spaces: Architectures, Media, Film, Digital Art and Design
SELECTION and REVIEW:
Submission is for delegates at AMPS conferences only. Using the editorial / subject expertise built up around the above conferences and themes AMPS makes the initial review of book proposals. If the proposal is accepted it is submitted with our recommendation to another round of review with one of our partner publishers:
Routledge Taylor&Francis, Intellect Book, UCL Press, Libri Publishing and Vernon Press.
The aim of this process is to support academics working in the areas of interest of AMPS. The process is as follows:
In order to be considered for book publications, authors should have first registered on a relevant AMPS conference. The conference should align with the general theme of your book proposal. To do this:
Visit the theme/conference links above, download the relevant conference abstract form and submit it to the relevant email address.
Once you have registered for the relevant conference you can submit your individual book proposal. To do so download and fill out this submission form
The book proposal should be submitted to the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org It will be treated as a submission in parallel to but separate from your conference abstract.
Your book proposal will be reviewed within two months of the relevant conference by members of the editorial team specialized in that thematic area.
If accepted it will be sent by AMPS to one of our publisher partners based on our assessment of its relevance to the book series in question.
On occasion AMPS may advise the submitting author to make alterations to a proposal prior to it being recommended to the publisher.
If a proposal is not accepted by the first publisher AMPS will consider submitting it later to another of its publishing partners. Proposals will not be submitted simultaneously.
Final decisions on publication will be by the publishing partner.
PREVIOUS BOOKS and PUBLICATIONS:
The initiative Publication and Research in Art, Architectures, Design and Environments builds on the work of AMPS In supporting research and publication since 2012. During this time AMPS has overseen the publication of various books and special issues of its academic journal Architecture_MPS.
