Common Ground Research Networks Book Imprints aim to set new standards in participatory knowledge creation and scholarly publication.

Why Publish With Us

We’re not focused solely on the size of potential markets or competition from other books. We’re only interested in the quality of the work.

Inclusive

We welcome submissions from across national origins, experience levels, and disciplinary perspectives.

Broad or Niche

We are not driven solely by potential sales, but by the quality of the work. Books on niche topics or specialized subject matter are welcome.

Better Feedback

Our process pairs authors with reviewers who are specialized in the area, allowing for a stronger feedback cycle and better end product.
