Developing Textbook Materials in Uncommon Languages.
Lathrop, Thomas A.
Guidelines are offered for preparing and publishing textbook materials in Portuguese and other uncommonly taught languages. The available options for publishing Portuguese materials include two textbook publishers, three university presses, self-publication, and the Cabrilho Press, which produces language textbooks. Methods for submitting manuscripts to publishers and for self-publication are summarized. For self-publication, a neat typescript is recommended. Obtaining permission for including copyrighted materials, soliciting reviews by colleagues, researching printing and binding costs, preparing a copyright notice, and marketing are described. Journals that should receive review copies are listed along with other publishing handbooks and resources. (RW)
