Helsinki University Press (HUP) is seeking proposals for original research, across multiple disciplines, on the cultural, economic, social, and political dimensions of pandemics. We welcome proposals for monographs, short monographs, and edited volumes. Dissertations and conference proceedings will not be considered.

We are open to all methodological and epistemological approaches, and welcome research proposals that promote better understanding of historical and/or present pandemics.

All proposals are first evaluated by HUP’s editorial team and Academic Board. Selected proposals and manuscripts undergo a rigorous peer-review process prior to a publishing decision. Accepted manuscripts will be published in open access with the possibility to buy paperbacks as print on demand. No author fees will be charged for manuscripts published through this call.

Submissions will be evaluated on a rolling base and proposals are welcome at any point up until 31 January 2023 (at 23:59 EEST).
