From the The University of Akron Press guidelines:

The University of Akron Press seeks to acquire innovative content that advances scholarship. We especially are interested in works that are interdisciplinary in nature, shed light on new areas of research, and apply findings to real-world problems. We look for titles within the following areas: law, organizational studies, politics, psychology, sustainability, and technology, including polymer science.

As a regional publisher, we are interested in titles about Ohio history and culture in the broadest sense.

We will consider literary collections based around one theme, especially collections of translated works. Poetry collections by a single author must be submitted to the Akron Poetry Prize for consideration.
