Publishing and Author Information


For Prospective Authors

The mission of Taos Institute Publication’s publishing mission is to offer books that support the advancement of knowledge of social construction in various disciplines and applications and to enhance the awareness of the Taos Institute and its purpose.

Taos Institute Publications is a collaborative ventures. Authors work very closely with the editorial team from proposal to final printing. Responsibilities are shared with authors, giving authors substantial voice in the design, production and marketing of the publication. The upfront financial investment is primarily the author’s responsibility and by contributing to the financial investment, authors also share more substantially in the royalties.

The proposal will help the authors articulate their book and will help TIP understand the authors’ goals and whether the book will be compatible with the mission and philosophy of the Taos Institute. The TIP Books for Professionals committee will review the proposal. Once the proposal has been reviewed, the authors will be notified.

For proposal guidelines please contact: Dawn Dole, Executive Director, info@taosinstitute.net.
