There is nothing sadder than the death of a baby. The research that you have spent months or years on is your baby and babies bring joy into the world.

The research you have done is important. You did it for a reason. You wanted to change people in the world.

We create a published portal for your writing so that people can find their way back to your original research and derive the benefit that you put your heart into.

How Publishing Your Dissertation With Us Can Enhance Your Career! Position Yourself as an Expert in Your Field!

VISION: To offer doctoral scholars an award winning publishing solution to position themselves as an expert in their field.

Sometimes the doctoral journey may take as much as 7 years or more. Often, when the degree is completed, the research is published by the respective university, where the new doctor will purchase a leather bound copy that sits on their coffee table as proof of their accomplishment, in addition to the diploma of course. Our goal as part of The Refractive Thinker® doctoral community is to get this research off the coffee table and into the hands of business owners who can benefit from the results. The goal is not to decorate the coffee table; the goal is to become an ambassador of change. Our goal is not to sell books, but to sell innovative thinking solutions.The world is in desperate need of answers to many of the problems that face the world of business and academia.  Join our research community of doctoral scholars in our mission to change the world.

If you hold a doctorate degree, you are invited to publish your research from your dissertation (5 chapter model), doctoral study (3 Section Model) or PhD study.  Come join doctoral scholars from around the globe as part of the 17-time award winning doctoral anthology, The Refractive Thinker® series.
