An opportunity exists to write reference books for the Parenteral Drug Association (US). The list of topics is provided below and is just a starting list and ideas are welcome. The writing is paid on a royalty only basis, which is 10% for single authors. However it is possible to be the editor of a book and in collaboration produce a book on a topic using chapters from a number of authors (the royalty arrangement for this type of book is different).
The text must contain some current regulatory material from a European/global perspective (the point is to produce more texts written from a European angle). If you have a particular topic that is not on the list please let me know. For any book I need a two to three paragraph proposal, a tentative table of contents and estimated page count to present to the Technical Advisory Book Board at the PDA. .
