I think they are not worthy publishers. I am saying so because a good publishing house will never bother contacting authors overseas and following up their emails for months.
Ok for beginners I would say.
But search for better ones.

I published my dissertation with Lambert in 2010-2011 in response to their invitation that looked much like the ones quoted in this discussion. I did not take the trouble to trace their reputation at that time. Yet, I don't regret it. My experience with this publisher is that YES, they are reliable. OK, I have doubts about the low number of copies sold that they mail me every year (never high enough for a royalty, only for vouchers), but I did not expect this book to earn me money anyway. Apart from this, they did what they agreed to do, and did not not what they told that they would not do. This is, in essence, reliability.
It surprises me that the lack of peer reviews is seen as LAP's shortcoming by many. LAP will indeed publish your work without any review, but the invited manuscripts are supposed to be dissertations, master's theses or other carefully prepared works. Assuming that such works have already been reviewed is not that strange. I would even say that university reviews during completing such texts are normally of a higher standard than those by publisher's reviewing teams. Also, if a manuscript really needs an in-depth review (or peer review), I think its author should better reconsider the publishing.
Well, those thousands of titles published by Lambert look indeed suspicious and there is probably a great deal of junk there. But there is also something charming in the way they operate. The facts that it does not cost you anything to publish there, that nobody will mess up in your text, that your book will be on Amazon, will professionally be brought under attention all over the world (even if ridiculously priced), ... this all feels really good! Even if it is the same kind of feeling good as that of Kilgore Trout.

Dear Shua,
Lambert academic publishing is just one out of the publishing house of OmniScriptum who even even encourage authors to download wikipedia articles and bring them up for publishing without changes. Read about OmniScriptum https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OmniScriptum
In the course of searching for potential publisher for our book project, I have done a thorough analysis about them and discovered they do not care about reputation. What they care about is what goes into their pocket. I had rather go for self-publishing than publish with LAP.
If you are in search of a good publisher, there are a good number of them who will not frustrate your effort. Make your analysis, read what people say about them, see their reactions and you will be making a right choice!
Kind regards,
Egbuna, C.

In my early career, I published with them out of ignorance. I have received several invitations from them lately but I don't think they are reliable in terms of increasing the quality of articles and books sent to them. No review on submissions are made. They just trade the work for monetary gains with purported royalties to authors.
However, in terms of visibility, they are OK. If you want to publish with them, ensure that you have carefully reviewed your work and/or has submitted it for thorough and rigorous review somewhere.
I would rather send my work to a publishing firm that can add real value to my work in terms of content. Lambert Academic Publishing will certainly not be a choice for me now.

This is a publisher who will publish every academic text without further review. They publish as print-on-demand, apparently with unrealistically high prices. They also publish wikipedia articles, i.e. copy and paste from the web and print it. A German article on this publishing model bears the headline "The academic junkyard" (https://www.zeit.de/studium/uni-leben/2012-11/vdm-publishing-group-wissenschaftsverlag-doktorarbeiten). Here is an English blog post called "academic spam", which calls the model "vanity publishing": http://chrisnf.blogspot.com/2009/06/academic-spam.html Also compare: https://www.quora.com/What-is-Lambert-Academic-Publishing and https://slate.com/technology/2014/03/lap-lambert-academic-publishing-my-trip-to-a-print-content-farm.html

I also got an invitation to publish my already published article. This article has already been published in a peer reviewed journal (impact factor 5.6). I was wondering if it is desirable, appropriate, or common to publish (as a book) an already published work. In addition, I have seen many manuscripts simply(regardless of their quality and without any editing and peer review) being published as books. I do not recommend publishing with any publisher that publishes everything and anything.

Here is a great post in Slate on the Lambert publishing experience written by someone who knew what he was getting into, went through the process anyway essentially to document it, and did some decent research on what he could find out about the company: https://slate.com/comments/technology/2014/03/lap-lambert-academic-publishing-my-trip-to-a-print-content-farm.html .
The bottom line is that having a book on your cv published by one of these gig economy mills is likely to be an "embarrassment". In short, why bother;upload your work to ResearchGate and have it actually read by peers. It will save you a lot of effort, and don't think for a minute you'll earn anything from having that blight on your cv.

Sorry, this just gets richer. Here, Bond University warns its graduates about selling away their copyright to unscrupulous companies who apply no value-added to what is already available on open access from the university. In their words:
" If you are completing your HDR studies, or just starting your academic career as a PhD graduate beware of solicitous emails from predatory publishers that seek out authors of new theses.
"The most dominating of these publishers is Lambert Academic Publishing (LAP) a subsidiary of VDM Verlag. Lambert specialises in the publication of theses, but is not considered a bonafide academic publisher as they merely reproduce theses without any editorial oversight, i.e. they do not apply the basic standards of academic publishing such as peer-review, editorial or proof-reading processes into their hurried production of theses into books. Lambert has been described as an author mill which bases its business on producing high price print-on-demand books for a large number of new PhD graduates sourced from universities around the globe, exemplified by many of the 106,602 LAP paperback books on Amazon(as at 11 Feb 2015)."

Dear Shua,
Lambert Academic Publishing is a scam. LAP spams scholars who have published theses offering to republish them as books with a zero editing or reviewing.
1. LAP create a front cover using stock art and place the "book" online (on their own site and sister sites, and on Amazon) for sale at high prices with no indication that this work is an unedited thesis.
2. The author never sees a penny of those sales.
3. Then begins the next stage of the scam - the hard sell. Scholars are drawn in by the promise of royalties but these are a mirage. In reality, LAP presses authors to buy expensive copies of their own book! Not only do these authors risk being out-of-pocket, but they also risk damaging their reputation by publishing with LAP.
4. Now I ask you, What about LAB indexing!!
Google scholar? RG? Scopus? ISI? other universal libraries and indexes?
only AMAZON ? ( Does Amazon indicate for a good Publisher?)

IT IS NOT ONLY LAMBERT THAT PUBLISHES THESIS AS BOOKS, OTHER BOOK COMPANIES DO, ONLY THAT THEY DO NOT CREATE AWARENESS AS LAMBERT DOES. I HAVE GONE TO THEIR BOOKSHOP www.morebooks.shop. I HAVE NOT SEEN THE WORD THESIS ON ANY OF THEIR BOOKS. IF YOU WANT TO PUBLISH YOUR THESIS, CHANGE THE TOPIC, REVIEW THE CONTENTS AND MAKE A REVISED COPY THAT IS MORE VOLUMINUOS THAN THE THESIS. IF YOU DO NOT SEND THE THESIS EXACTLY AS IT WAS, YOU HAVE NOT VIOLATED ANY COPYRIGHT LAW. LAMBERT DID NOT TELL YOU TO SEND YOUR THESIS EXACTLY AS IT WAS, BUT IN A MODIFIED FORM. THERE IS A FORMAT LAMBERT USES THAT MAKES THE FINAL PRODUCT DIFFERENT FROM YOUR THESIS. WITH THIS FORMAT, YOU CANNOT VIOLATE THE COPYRIGHT LAW. YOUR THESIS CAN BE ACCEPTED BY ANY BOOK COMPANY AND PUBLISHED, NOT ONLY LAMBERT. IF YOU STUDY HARD YOU CAN PUBLISH MANY TEXTBOOKS FROM ONE THESIS. IF YOU HAVE ANY OBJECTIONS, LET ME KNOW. THANK YOU.

IF YOU SAY IT IS BETTER TO AVOID LAP AND YOU HAVE NOT GIVEN ANY COGENT REASON, YOU MAKE PEOPLE TO SUSPECT THAT YOU ARE ONE OF THE ENEMIES OF LAP. IF YOU HAVE ANY REASONS EXPLAIN THEM. YOU CANNOT COME TO A CONCLUSION WITHOUT PREMISES. REMEMBER THAT INDIVIDUAL PEOPLE ARE NOT BOOK REGULATORY AGENCIES. DO YOUR BOOK BUSINESS ,LET LAP DO ITS OWN BOOK BUSINESS. I HAVE NEVER SEEN TWO BIRDS COLLIDING IN THE SKY. YOU AND YOUR SPONSORS STAND THE RISK OF BEING SUED TO COURT AND EVENTUALLY IMPRISONED. THANK YOU,SIR.

LAP LAMBERT IS NOT THE ONLY PUBLICATION COMPANY THAT SEND E- MAILS TO PROSPECTIVE AUTHORS. I HAVE BEEN RECEIVING E-MAILS FROM MANY PUBLICATION COMPANIES. IS THERE ANYTHING WRONG WITH CREATING AWARENESS ABOUT ONES BUSINESS? SENDING E-MAILS IS A MEANS OF PUBLICITY AND THERE IS NO REGULATION AGAINST IT. IF YOU HAVE ANY OBJECTIONS, LET ME KNOW. THANK YOU.

There are many arguments about LAP (You can find them in Google site).
I found that many people mixed books up with journals of research papers which require peer review. Books are merchandises and, therefore, they should be evaluated by business standard. People can publish his thesis as a book but his research paper should be published in a journal because it is basically not a merchandise. LAP has never said " publish in their journals".

I think they are not worthy publishers. I am saying so because a good publishing house will never bother contacting authors overseas and following up their emails for months.
Ok for beginners I would say.
But search for better ones.

Like so many, I am shocked and saddened at seeing war break out in Europe. My thoughts – and those of the ResearchGate team – are with the people of Ukraine and everyone affected.
ResearchGate is an international company, whose purpose is to enable scientists across the world to work together openly and collaboratively, regardless of borders or nationality. We have people from over 40 countries on our staff of around 200, and being based in Berlin, we are profoundly aware of the human cost of conflicts, the echoes of which have shaped and scarred our home city. We join with the international community in condemning the actions of the Russian state.
We have been asking ourselves: What can we do?
From today, we will offer free advertising space worth $2.5 million on our network to humanitarian organizations working to respond to the crisis. ResearchGate benefits from over 50 million visitors every month, and we hope this initiative can help raise funds and awareness for those organizations that are having direct impact and need support.
We also want to use our platform to highlight the response from the scientific community. Personally, I have found the messages of support from scientists everywhere to be truly heartfelt, and I would like to highlight some of the community initiatives I’ve seen here:
Additionally, I’m posting here some of the organizations responding to the crisis and actively soliciting donations:
To help gather more support for these initiatives, please consider sharing this post further (you don’t need a ResearchGate account to see it), and I will continue to update it with other initiatives as I find them. You can also click “Recommend” below to help others in your ResearchGate network see it. And if you know of any other community initiatives that we can share here please let us know via this form: https://forms.gle/e37EHouWXFLyhYE8A

What is InTech Open Science? A predatory or a ligitimate publisher?

Dear friends colleagues, have you ever received an invitation to publish your work at InTech Open Science (https://www.intechopen.com/)? I have recently been invited to edit a new book title for them. I am usually suspicious with such invitations and must check the authenticity of the publisher first. Interestingly, they claim that they have published the work for two recent Nobel Laureates. Therefore, I would appreciate your experience and opinions regarding InTech Open Science.
Kind regards,
