Your proposal will be forwarded to a committee of reviewers who will consider the following, among other topics, in choosing the best team to work on the next edition: past experience in the area for which you are proposing, experience in the topic area, involvement in ELA, etc.

Since each title reflects different content and different needs, for the anticipated timeline of deadline for proposals, review and acceptance and notifications, due dates, and more please see the document linked to the most recent month's member material (where ELA Notes and School Law Reporter are posted). Work shall not commence until a written agreement is signed by all necessary parties.

Chapter authors are expected to prepare a new manuscript or update an existing chapter using the latest resources available, writing to expand the knowledge base of the anticipated end user.
