To keep the University community informed of work by fellow members, BU Today will publish BU Books of 2006, a comprehensive listing of publications by University faculty and staff, in February 2007. Any book authored, coauthored, edited, or coedited by a BU affiliate can be included on the list, but submissions must be for full books authored or edited, not for an individual chapter in a book or a paper published in a multi-author collection.
Authors and editors are invited to submit their books to the annual list by visiting the BU Books of 2006 Web site at www.bu.edu/books. Submissions are due by Friday, January 5, 2007.
