Author Guidelines

Publish with Prentice Hall
Established in 1913 by Charles Gerstenberg and Richard Ettinger, Prentice Hall is successful in publishing introductory levels to advanced, professional, reference publications, and monographs. The growth of Prentice Hall has always been predicated on working with benchmark authors in their respective fields and on unparalleled investment in sales and marketing. Prentice Hall has had the largest, best trained sales force in the industry for decades. PH retains sales people in all areas of the US and on every continent and in most countries throughout the world. The myriad of market channels we promote our materials in include: international, trade/retail, mail-order, governmental, and library sales. Of equal importance is our continual investment in sophisticated, state of the art electronic production systems and new media product development.

As a prominent company in Pearson Education's publishing arm, Prentice Hall enjoys the financial support and investment in new media technologies that have made Pearson Education the largest most progressive media company in the world. At Prentice Hall, the value of content and intellectual property is preeminent and we plan to repurpose that content through any medium the consumer demands, whether it be in traditional book or new media digital formats. Few educational publishing companies are as well equipped as PH to meet the changes that technology is bringing to the information business.
