SEDA publishes for staff and educational developers. It also publishes for a range of colleagues who have staff and educational development responsibilities in their work. It is particularly interested in publishing material which supports improvement in the quality of student learning.

SEDA publishes the series SEDA Focus on educational and staff development with Routledge. The series is a “shortform” publication – 25,000 to 50,000 words. They address themes of particular contemporary interest, and can be published relatively quickly. They can be single-authored or edited collections. They are published in hardback and e-book formats, perhaps also in paperback after a year.

Potential titles and themes for the SEDA Focus series can be suggested to Becky Turner, Chair of SEDA Papers Committee, or via the SEDA Office. Members of the Papers Committee will be happy to discuss potential proposals by email or over the phone. When you are ready to submit your ideas formally, the information will be supplied using the proposals proforma. The SEDA Papers Committee referees ideas and proposals, identifies an Advisory Editor, who will work with the authors / editorial team until the book is published, and referees again before publication.

SEDA also publishes the Staff and Educational Development Series with Routledge. There are currently 32 books in the Series (2022). These are traditional books of between 80,000 and 110,000 words, published in hardback and paperback. They are usually edited collections, and as with all Routledge publications, have a world-wide readership. If you are interested in proposing a title, please contact the Series editor, James Wisdom, through the SEDA Papers Committee.
