Manchester University Press is an international concern, publishing work by authors from all around the world and selling books to a global audience.

2. It’s normal to spend at least a year on revisions to turn a thesis into a book.

3. Before starting a thesis-based book proposal, ask yourself whether it really ought to be one or more journal articles instead.

4. Research publishers, their subject areas and their series properly to make sure you’re choosing the right press for your book.
