Instructions for Authors

As RTI Press strives to reach a general audience, authors are invited to submit manuscripts that are clearly and concisely written without jargon or overly technical language. RTI Press considers manuscripts based on research, analytical tools and methods, and technical expertise; we do not publish advocacy or opinion pieces. All submitted manuscripts are screened for plagiarism and must not be concurrently under review elsewhere. All manuscripts must include at least one RTI author or editor. RTI Press does not charge fees to authors for peer-reviewed publications.

Submission checklist

  • To prepare their manuscript, interested researchers should follow the RTI Press submission guidelines.
  • Before submitting, authors should ensure compliance with our authorship and editorial policies, as well as our style guide. All manuscripts must include at least one RTI author or editor. RTI Press encourages authors to include ORCID iDs for all authors.
  • Authors should also prepare an author intake form to be included with their submission.
  • Completed manuscripts and book proposals should be submitted via Scholastica. (Please note that Scholastica does not work with the Internet Explorer web browser. If IE is your default browser, please copy and paste into Chrome, Firefox, or Safari.)
