Authors are encouraged to read the appropriate book series guidelines in advance of submitting their proposal.

Series Submission Guidelines:

How to Submit Images

If your manuscript includes photos, tables, figures, maps, or illustrations, you must fill out the photo program template. This document is vital for organizing your photo information, captions, and credits.

Please submit final images via USB flash drive or Box. Please do not embed any images in the manuscript, and do not submit images via email. (Note: All images must be at least 300 dpi resolution, preferably in a .tiff or .jpeg file format.) Ensure that you have submitted the corresponding photo program as mentioned above.

Please type up your captions and credits accompanying your photo program. This should contain captions and appropriate credit information for each image, corresponding to the file name (no duplicate names for images). Securing permission for use of any image is the responsibility of the author.

Photo Callouts in the Text

Please do not embed photos in your manuscript document. Instead, you must use photo callouts. A photo callout is simply an indication of where you want a particular image to appear in your text. To add a photo callout, simply type the image file name in angle brackets approximately where you want that photo to run, like this: <image file name>.

For an example, please see our photo callouts screenshot.

  • DO NOT embed photos in a Word manuscript.
  • DO NOT submit multiple photos using email (as that takes up storage space in our email inboxes).
  • Photos need to be at a resolution of 300 dpi or higher.
  • When submitting your final photo program, double check that photos have unique file names (no duplicate names), ensure you have a completed photo program document, and confirm that you have placed all photo callouts in the final manuscript. You must ensure that photo file names match the names in the photo program doc, image folder, and manuscript callouts.
  • Submit photos using a USB flash drive or shared Box folder.
  • Obtain all permissions for photos before submitting.
  • We reserve the right to remove images from the manuscript that do not have permissions/credit line or that do not meet our resolution and size requirements.
