The Policy Studies Organization (PSO) offers publishing opportunities through its imprint and book program, Westphalia Press. We are looking for original manuscripts and hope to be able to assist anyone with their publication goals. Manuscripts from all disciplines are welcome for consideration.
Our focus is on wider readership and dissemination. We offer attractive terms to authors under a print-on-demand model, which allows us to produce books at a low cost for increased worldwide distribution among readers and reviewers. All of our books are published both in paper and electronic versions.
As a non-profit academic association, Westphalia Press is a growing part of the PSO’s longtime mission of accessible scholarship dissemination, and aims to provide quality volumes at affordable prices. We believe there is much valuable scholarship out there that deserves to be shared more widely and effectively.
