Questions related to Book Publishing
She argues that 'when many successful scientists boast dozens, even hundreds, of research papers to their name, calls for more “quality over quantity” in publication can appear to ring rather hollow.
Thus, to ensure quality in the paper publications churned out from dozens of academic journals, she gave the above suggestion. What do you think about her suggestion? Would it improve the rigor of science or slow down the pace of scientific development?
Kindly share your interesting views on this issue. Thanks
I have been looking for a scientific book publishers to publish a book chapter on Inorganic Chemistry/ Organometallic chemistry/ Material chemistry / Phosphazenes/ Covalent Organic Frameworks.
It would be great if someone help me in this case!
Thanks in advance!
In my recent manuscript submission to a Springer Nature journal, I have come across Research Square (Preprint service provider associated with Springer Nature) which is allowing & encouraging me to publish the manuscript under consideration as a Preprint. My question is, If I publish it as Preprint, in the event of rejection of my manuscript from the journal, will it affect my subsequent submission to a different journal? (i.e. will my own preprint be caught and counted for determining the similarity index by the next journal house)
Most PhD students think about disseminating their work worldwide. Don't you think that each form of publication has pros (articles are quickly read while books are highly rewarding...) as well as challenges (articles are less impactful while books take a longer time to get published)? What would you prefer most?
What are the key differences between Elsevier and Springer Book publishers in terms of
process, chance to publish, and benefits they provide to authors?
Please suggest me how to get a link or an invitation for contributing book chapters related to the topics like Agricultural Science, Agricultural Meteorology, Climate Change, Environmental Science, Sustainable Agriculture, Conservational Agriculture, Food Security etc. for the books published by well-respected science journals with high impact factor (as for example, Springer, Elsevier, MDPI etc.)
I trying to understand how to get my papers published in good journals of economics/finance. How can I ensure that my paper is worth publishing? I submitted a paper in one journal and they rejected it after two months, another paper was rejected in a few days.
It is required for my PhD to be considered complete that I have atleast two papers published in UGC/Scopus approved journals. Any suggestions?
Does anyone know of a Cybersecurity academic book publisher that is relatively fast toward publication? My research partner and myself have written a book, and we are looking to publish it as soon as possible. Any recommendations or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Usually in our university we recommend the book of Schoonhoven et al., 2005 "Insect-Plant Biology", and of Karban, 2015 "plant sensing and communication", however, this year we are looking for any other recent good books published on these topics.
Please could you know some?
I have seen many questions on papers rejected after for many months of delay.. it could be very frustrating and devalue the paper if it is time sensitive. I know it depends of the reviewers response but I belief that Journal editors can fast track it. My question now is to whether they should be rated on that too?
I got inspired by the reading of a short paper written by Jonathan Tennant, entitled “Web of Science and Scopus are not global databases of knowledge” (2020). There I heard about some databases for the first time, like the Garuda portal or African Journals Online. It got me wondering: what else is out there and I do not know because my point of view is limited to the languages I speak and the place I live in?
So, my idea here is that we can share academic databases that we are familiar with and perhaps are not very well known in other countries or continents. Where do you do your research?
Here is a list of interesting links that I have collected, without strict criteria, reflecting my point of view as a Brazilian researcher in the field of Psychology.

Are you interested in the application of complex systems to the global history of humankind? I'm working on such a project, and I'm interested in discussions with like-minded people.
This looks a lot like Omniscript/Lambert/VDM style of "publishing", except with a Gmail address and a misspelled "WeChat". Not sure how that "peer review" is going to go, but I have my suspicions.
Dear Randolph Caldwell,
I am writing to introduce our Book Publishing Service to you. As we have been providing Open Access journal publishing for years, we are becoming more and more experienced in providing book publishing service, and have already had a good service system to help authors publish the books they want. In other words, you can publish a customized book..
Best regards, Spring Book Department E-mail: email@example.com Wecat：Book_official
One of the most common methods is to submit the manuscript to an editorial (i.e. Springer, Elsevier, etc.). However, what if you want to publish a thesis in a book/chapter book or if you have a large study with an interesting/different approach? What would be the best alternative?
I would appreciate it if someone could give some options (in English or Spanish), indexes, (perhaps price), and an estimate of waiting times.
Could you please photocopy Formula 88.2.2 and Formula 10.49.33 in the following book published in 1975 by Hansen?
E. R. Hansen, A Table of Series and Products, Prentice-Hall, Englewood Cliffs, NJ, USA, 1975.
It is better to send these two formulas to my e-mail box firstname.lastname@example.org.
Anyway, thank you very much for your kind help.

Thanks in advance
I'm a Sr Director of Product Management at Citrix, and I teach Product Management part-time at North Carolina State University (graduate program).
I completed my DBA this year and submitted 3 papers to various journals (1 accepted, 2 in review).
I would like to partner with an active academic to do research in the field of corporate innovation and ambidexterity. Also, I'm considering to write a book about navigating a successful career, and it would be based on research that I have a rough idea for. The issue I'm seeing, there is no platform to find research partners on topics of joint interest... or, at least I'm unable to find such a platform. Someone on Quora suggested to start with RG, so I'm trying my luck here :).
I look forward to your advice!
It is observed that most self-publishing publishers are active in the publishing sector/market. Browsing through such publishers' portal is sometimes quite impressive. They published a good number of books almost in all fields. Some are well-established authors who also opted for publications.
I have a book publishing contract deal from a legitimate publisher this week. However, this is my first time in my career. As a result, I am a bit confused about the contract agreements.
Thus, I am kindly requesting RG members any important information related to book publishing contract deals. What are the most important things I should consider before signing the contract?
I need your opinions, experience and help if this publisher is reliable, as they send me an email inviting me to write a chapter with publishing fees [Book Publisher International (bookpi.org)].
I search in the predatory list, but I couldn't find them.
Can we discuss this topic and share experiences
Our faculty intends to write and edit a case book for undergraduate students. We intend to download and add available WHO guidelines in the field of paediatrics.
I am about to begin working on a project which is publishing a book about perspectives on higher education in Oman (edited collections). Any insights, suggestions?
Across world, we are generating billions of technical papers or new ideas every year, but converting them into a reality is less than a percentage, then what else motto we have to generate such a massive content?
Homo Ludens is a book published in 1938 by Johan Huizinga. It discusses the importance of the play element of culture and society, and is a fundamental part of my PhD dissertation (work in progress). I'm just wondering if somebody else is studying this work and/or have any thoughts about it to share.
This question is based on the following facts (publish or perish):
"Do you feel overwhelmed by the number of research papers in your field?
Do you wonder if you’re missing key ideas that could be critical for your research program? Does it feel like the deluge is only getting worse?
You’re not imagining things. According to research from the University of Ottawa, in 2009 we passed the 50 million mark in terms of the total number of science papers published since 1665, and approximately 2.5 million new scientific papers are published each year.
What’s driving this publication explosion?
At its most basic level, we’ve seen a substantial increase in the total number of academic journals. As of 2014 there were approximately 28,100 active scholarly peer-reviewed journals. Add to this the increasing number of predatory or fake scientific journals, which produce high volumes of poor-quality research, and you have a veritable jungle of journals to wade through.
Another key factor is the sheer number of publishing scientists worldwide, which is increasing at a rate of approximately 4-5% per year. In British Columbia and Alberta alone, we’ve seen the conversion of more than seven colleges to universities in the past decade, and with these changes come new pressures on faculty to publish.
This pressure to “publish or perish”—and the increased competition amongst this growing pool of scientists—has resulted in some researchers becoming what’s termed “salami slicers.”
They divide papers into the least publishable unit in order to lengthen their publication list, increase the chances of being cited, and increase the opportunity to publish in journals with a high impact factor. This further contributes to the volume of papers published."
Which book do you suggest for a detailed discussion of relative permeability? I am looking for a book published recently similar to the one by Honarpour et al. (relative permeability of petroleum reservoirs).
I really appreciate your help in advance.
What are the causes of such different perspectives of a paper by reviewers?
How should an early career researcher respond to it?
Kindly share your views dear colleagues. Best regards
The publisher has indicated that they are submit for Scopus inclusion. Since its book under theme of South East Asian context, I doubt whether be approved. Any ideas?
Author has two books, the one of books titiled"mathematical foundation for dialecticval logic" is to making dialectical logic mathemnatically and another book titiled "dialectical logic K-model" is for strong artificial intelligence, the two books will be published by LAP in the nearest future and now in my profile as preprint, then I need some critical opinions for the two books, do you give me if your skill is logic?
What is more prestigious and better for the career, to publish academic books with an established university press such as Cambridge and Princeton or with other big commercial publishers such as Sage and Routledge? What are advantages and disadvantages?
I am looking for a good book publisher for one of my book chapter related to biopolymer hydrogels having scientifically a broad scope and also a ISBN. If someone has experience in the same or related area or any general advise is more than welcome!
To publish a Unified Theory of Everything, which includes a series of papers describing and proving its Astrophysics, Electromagnetics & Optics, Gravitation, Weak Force, and Strong Force counterparts, what would be the best Scientific Journal to publish it altogether, or is it better to publish it as a book with chapters covering individual proofs in different physics disciplines? If submitting to a Journal, how can the intellectual rights be protected in the peer-review process? If published in a book, what would be the pros and cons in comparison to being published as an Academic Journal Paper?
I'm reading this book and I'm really interested in translating few pages from a section of the book into my mother tongue language. Now i have already started but then i realized maybe it is not ethical nor legal to do so even for translating "few pages" from the book without asking for permission from the original author.
I received an email from Nova press, NY with a request to provide research or review chapter(s) for a book cooperation within the scope of my research interests. I would be interested, if you have i) experience with this kind of publication and ii) where are the benefits in terms of dissemination and/or citations etc.?
As books usually are not made open access, I do only see a benefit for the publisher as they earn money with this. The authors are not paid for their work and have no share on the revenue... so why should I cooperate? Prestige??
Many thanks for your input,
Can anyone tell me what are the methods to be followed during checking plagiarism for a prepared unpublished manuscript(Research paper, Review Paper, Book chapter, Short communication, Article) ?
Should I include the references, bibliography, images, materials methods, Table of data collected(may be from literature search or results of an experiment) ???
And what is the overall plagiarism % (With or without references) which will not create a huddle to get published.

Dear PhD students,
Some parasitic and predatory publishers will offer you to publish your thesis for free and without prior examination and peer review. It's all about scam. Some are already registered on the Dolos list (https://www.professeur-alexandre-georges.info/dolos-list), like VDM Publishing (OmniScriptum) and Lambert Academic Publishing, but stay cautious. Publishing your thesis with a predatory publisher will never be positive for your work. If you have already published, don't worry, it can happen to well-established researchers. If you have made a commitment to publish with this type of publisher, retract and, if they refuse, do not hesitate to contact my office at:
The Dolos list is a resource designed to help researchers, students, and journalists to determine which publishers or journals are serious and which are not. My team will try to provide the most suitable solution and will not hesitate to intervene.
There must be certain stylistic features in writing that differentiate native from non-native standards. Perhaps non-native writers can improve upon their writing styles in order to enrich competition in research paper publishing.
For my master thesis, I am working on Mobile Laser Scanner data which my duty is Extraction of Powerlines Poles. My data is about 10 Kilometers long and has approximately 60 the powerline poles. Fortunately, my algorithm has extracted 58 the poles correctly and two others poles were not completely extracted by Mobile Laser Scanner system which caused proposed algorithm can not extract them. The proposed algorithm is completely automatic and does not need many parameters for extraction.
My main question is that which circumstances do need my implementation to be published in a good ISI journal?
After completing some research on systems thinking across various medical and health professions education programs, colleagues and I decided to develop a monograph to help educators teach and assess systems thinking. We have found it a bit more challenging to publish a monograph as opposed to a research article -- journals want brief manuscripts; book publishers want full textbooks. Some colleagues have suggested self-publishing but I am concerned that this might not be a credible/respected route to pursue as a researcher and academic. Would love to hear what others think.
I am looking for phytochemical screening protocols which is describe the methods for Extraction, Isolation,and Identification and analysis of Bioactive Compounds from Plant Extracts and advice for applying correct solvent and methods of extraction specially for Tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum L.) .So far only one book published from Jeffrey B. Harborne.I am looking specifically for bioactive compounds from tobacco leaf and protocols for Extraction, Isolation,and Identification and analysis of saponins, cardiotonic glycosides, alkaloids, terpenoids, lipids, volatile compounds, and polyphenols (flavonoids, xanthones,coumarins, naphthoquinones, anthraquinones, proanthocyanidins, etc.).Thank you for your kind support.
i am going to establish a project as my master thesis, so normally i have to submit a paper as report of finding and result.
the project who i have chosen is about face recognition. initial idea is to write a code that is able to detect faces in picture, compare it with stored faces and as output provide a list of people in the picture.
my doubt is _
1. since its a project, should i define a problem in paper? if yes how?
2. how can i choose most relevant paper, book or published as reference/resource for my project?
I am interested in the emergence of new businesses among the PR and Advertising ecossystems, companies that bring a role of intermediation between influencers and brands. They fulfill the role of Agents, like the same kind of Agents we see in creative and artistic industries.
I would appreciate any article, scientific or not, that studied these kinds of companies and the Value they claim to bring into the system.
Hello everybody, I am looking for sources of tricubic interpolation ( interpolation in three dimensions ) ...Does anyone have a any suggestion like books or published articles ?? please ... Thank you in advance.
I would like to get the conference papers books that published in several conferences held in the past years in Libya. These books were kept in libraries of Libyan universities and research centers.
I am very interested in this book but I couldn't find it. Now I am in Berlin Germany, can anyone provide me some access to this book? Thank you very much
The project is a book to be published by springer. We are planning to get the first draft ready by December 2017.
I must immediately acknowledge that I am a total neophyte in this subject of researching the history of books of antiquity ... of trying to determine how widely a book might have been published / accepted / adopted / cited / utilized / believed-in by peers / etc. etc. Yet, I am very curious to know those facts about a certain book, entitled CURA DE DIOS Y PASTOR DE JESU-CHRISTO, SEGUNDA PARTE. IDEADO DE LA SAGRADA ESCRITURA mayormente el Evangelio, Santos Padres, y Doctores de la Iglesia (etc. etc. ... an image of the title page I append). This book was published in Madrid in 1726 and authored by Dr. Antonio Joseph de Arredondo. Does anyone know how or where I should start the process of researching these facts? I have spent my life as a miserable archaeologist ... if this were some item dug from the earth, encrusted with soil, then I would have no problem ... but I need some pointers from an expert through the world of literature ... surely among this vast universe of paper-lovers there is one person who can wield the powerful tools of the internet and point-out some database, some shortcut methodology? Please?
Thanking, anyone, in advance, for advice and assistance,
Multiple-channel publishing is a conglomeration of different publishing methods including both the traditional and the electronic channels. The traditional publishing involves the use of offset printing technology that makes use of plate and paper to produce books and the distribution of the book produced in a physical (hardcopy) format. Electronic publishing on the other hand involves producing and distributing books via the internet. This electronic publishing is also referred to as online publishing and web publishing, when published in the form of a website
Hi. I am considering doing my MA dissertation in trends and statistics in the publication of translations (not limited to one country's publishing patterns or one language, i.e. not limited to US or UK or English-language sources; but I may need to limit to top-10 languages, something like that).
I also wish to review and compare the statistics-finding tools and resources available.
I am aware of the Index Translationum, COPAK and 3 percent. Each has their limitations - whether it be with out-dated data, poor or inconsistent data capture, limited sources or poor query facilities - but they make for interesting comparisons. **Addition - I have also contacted Nielsen Bookscan.
Can anyone point me at any other sites that I can access or contact to request access to? Preferably free... I may be able to put some funds into it, but definitely not much! I prefer English, French or Spanish language sites - German at a pinch - but I'm willing to try other language sites on the naive basis that data is data... (or are).
Many thanks, all
