Preliminary steps to publication

The preliminary stages to having material accepted for publication by Church of Ireland Publishing are as follows:-

  • Groups, committees or individuals who expect to submit material for publication should seek an early meeting with the Publications Officer (telephone Dublin 4923979), to discuss the feasibility of their project.
  • All manuscripts to be considered for publication must be submitted to the Honorary Secretary of the Literature Committee, RCB Library, Braemor Park, Churchtown, Dublin 14.
  • All who wish to publish must make budgetary provision in advance to cover the publication costs.
  • Groups or committees submitting material for publication must appoint one of their members as an editor, who will liaise directly with the Publications Officer.
