How to publish with us

Information for Authors

What we publish

At Oxford Fajar Sdn Bhd, we publish educational books for learners and students of all ages. Our books can be divided into three categories: Schools, Higher Education, and Reference (including dictionaries).

We publish primarily for the Malaysian market. If the main audience for your book is in another part of the world, please send your proposal directly to the relevant Oxford office, which you can locate at www.oup.com.

In order for us to evaluate a book or proposal effectively, it would be helpful to receive additional information about the book and about you! This information enables us to reach a decision on whether to publish.

When you are planning your book proposal, there are several things you should consider.

  1. Who is your audience? Be as specific as possible.
  2. Why will these people choose to buy your book? What is your unique selling proposition?
  3. What's your competition? In other words, what other books are there on this subject, and particularly, in the Malaysian market?
  4. What factors make your book better than any of these competing books?
  5. How many people would buy your book? As far as possible, you should have an idea of how large your market is.
  6. Will users/readers continue to buy your book for several years? The most successful books do not go out of date quickly.
