Do you have a great idea for a book that could benefit the field of student affairs and higher education but not know how to go about getting that book published? If so, consider publishing with ACPA Books! ACPA Books offers new authors/editors significant guidance and assistance in the publishing process that is not available when working directly with a publisher. More experienced authors/editors may wish to publish with ACPA Books as a way to “give back” to the organization. While royalties from all books published through ACPA Books are returned to the association, authors/editors benefit by having their works published, which may enhance their professional reputations and lead to greater professional opportunities for such activities as consulting, keynote speaking, and invited presentations.
ACPA Books partners with Stylus Publishing, one of the leading publishers of student affairs books. Recent ACPA Books publications include Student Affairs for Academic Administrators (2016; edited by T. Lynn Hogan), Trans* Policies & Experiences in Housing and Residence Life (2018; edited by Jason C. Garvey, Stephanie H. Chang, Z Nicolazzo, & Rex Jackson); and Debunking the Myth of Job Fit in Higher Education and Student Affairs (2019; edited by Brian J. Reece, Vu T. Tran, Elliott N. DeVore, & Gabby Porcaro). New titles are in the works; watch for updates in future Developments.
