Call for Submissions


We are a new academic press based in Oregon (USA) and current seeking potential manuscripts for publication.  Sirius Academic Press has been established to address to several challenges unique to the academic market.  First, many young academics face difficult challenges in finding a publisher in the current market, and too many good theses are going the (unfortunately easier) route of non-peer reviewed and for-profit presses.  This leads ultimately to the loss of good early research, which is later sold at prohibitive prices. Second, many institutions today wish to publish anthologies, as well as the proceedings of conferences and colloquia, but do not have a large budget for editorial costs with a major university press.

Thus the beginning of Sirius Academic Press.  We also believe that with a small editorial staff and collaboration with academic colleagues around the globe, quality scholarship can be published for much lower prices that many other large institutions are currently offering.

Our focus primarily on the liberal arts and social sciences, and Sirius believes in peer review, professionalism, and assisting academics by making their research available to the international market. The Sirius Academic team sees its authors as partners, and works to produce quality texts at a competitive price.

In short, our publishing focus is three-fold:

  1. Monographs and Dissertations
  2. Conference Proceedings
  3. Peer-Reviewed Anthologies

If you believe that you or your institution could benefit from our services, please let us know, and we’d be glad to speak further you.

All best,

Fundamentals of Moroccan Foreign PolicyNow available from Sirius Academic Press:

The Foundations of Moroccan Foreign Policy: An Anthology

Tachfine Baida, Editor
Introduction by Jack V. Kalpakian

Morocco has long enjoyed a strategic position as the crossroads between East and West. Yet within the field of international studies, few academics have examined its contemporary political relations in any depth. This edition aims to illuminate this area of study by introducing new perspectives to that discussion. A collaborative work by students of Al Akhawayn University’s graduate program in International Studies and Diplomacy, this is one of the first dedicated anthologies on Moroccan foreign policy. The volume helps to mediate the conceptual barriers that have appeared between the English-speaking world and the Islamic world, especially in the aftermath of 9-11. With the Arab Spring in mind, the papers in this anthology were significantly influenced by its dynamics, as they were articulated at its height. In addition to enhancing the academic discourse surrounding Moroccan foreign policy in English, it is hoped that this volume will contribute to healthy, positive and productive discussions about the shared future of the peoples of the Mediterranean and the Atlantic.
