Info for Publishers

What is the H-Net Book Channel?

The H-Net Book Channel is a free service from H-Net that aims to help readers learn about new academic books in their fields. We will never charge readers to read or publishers to announce new titles on the service.

Where do the book lists come from?

We import the most recent catalogs through Edelweiss. Publishers that do not use the Edelweiss service can get submit titles for announcement on the H-Net Book Channel by downloading a Sample Book Channel Spreadsheet and returning a completed copy to The magic book elves will do the rest.

What about sponsorship?

H-Net: Humanities & Social Sciences Online is a non-profit organization committed to pioneering the use of new content management and communication technology to facilitate the free exchange of academic ideas and scholarly resources. Our ultimate goal is the advancement of teaching and research in the arts, humanities, and social sciences. All content published on the H-Net Book Channel, be it lists of new books, reviews, or editorial content by H-Net contributors, is moderated by H-Net editors and independent of all commercial interests. We welcome publisher sponsors who wish to support H-Net and the Book Channel and acknowledge such sponsorship on separate sponsor pages under the Book Channel Sponsors section. Please email the Book Channel editor, Emily Joan Elliott at for more information on how to become a sponsor.
