HOW TO PUBLISH YOUR DISSERTATION

BECOME AN EXPERT IN YOUR FIELD

  • The Social Responsibility of the Doctoral Scholar

When students in higher education pursue a doctoral degree, much time and effort is invested in learning doctoral research techniques, methods and design strategies, as well as learning to write like a scholar.  Sometimes this journey may take as much as 7 years!  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 those who can benefit from the results. The goal isn’t to decorate the coffee table; the goal is to become an ambassador of change to add one’s expertise to the growing body of knowledge. The world is in desperate need of answers to many of the business and academic problems researched within academia.

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 12 time award winning doctoral anthology, The Refractive Thinker® series.

Our scholars are from The University of Baltimore, Walden University, University of Phoenix, Capella University, and The London School of Economics.  More than 85 unique doctoral scholars have joined with us to add their scholarly research to our award winning series.  Will you be the next scholar to contribute to our award wining series?

Ron Klein to Join the 2014 Edition of The Refractive Thinker

Dear Refractive Thinker Colleagues!
Happy Christmas week!   I wish you and your family the very best during this holiday season.   As we count our blessings during this beautiful Christmas season, what a perfect time to announce our partnership for the Spring 2014 Edition of The Refractive Thinker.   With each volume, we add an additional feature to help bridge the gap between academia and the business world—to get our research off the coffee table and into the hands of business owners that need our research.
I have the honor and privilege of having Ron Klein join us for this next adventure.  After every chapter, Ron will offer his application of the research offered in each chapter of how businesses and non profits can put your research to work for them.  As the inventor of the magnetic strip credit card-validity checking system, Ron knows a thing or two about business. *smiles*
We hope you are planning to join us for the 10th edition of our beloved and award winning Refractive Thinker: Effective Research Strategies for Motivation and Communication.  Have we reserved your chapter?
Happy New Year!  Please pass this information on to your networks as we have only a few chapters left!
My very best to your success in 2014!
Cheryl

Ron Klein Ron Klein’s innovative ideas, either in an invention or simple solution to a problem, have been revolutionary and have resulted in monumental changes. He is the inventor of the MAGNETIC STRIP CREDIT CARD-VALIDITY CHECKING SYSTEM. He is the developer of computerized systems for Real Estate (MLS) Multiple Listing Services and Voice Response for the Banking Industry. He developed the BOND QUOTATION and TRADE INFORMATION SYSTEM for the NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANGE. He was the founder and CEO of his public company, TECHNITREND, INC. He was the founder and CEO of GENERAL ASSOCIATES, INC. HISTORY: Ron is a graduate of Temple University with a BS in Electrical Engineering. He was trained in the specialized field of digital computers and communications  His career in Electrical Engineering began with Honeywell, where he held the position of Computer Systems Design and Development Engineer.  He developed the power control system for Philadelpha Electric Company. Upon leaving Honeywell, he was employed as the Director of Engineering with Ultronics Systems Corp, which was later acquired by GT&E Financial Data Services. In 1968, he explored his entrepreneurial spirit and founded his new company, TECHNITREND, INC. TECHNITREND, INC. employed one hundred twenty-five (125) people. Their first project was involved with developing a system for a nutrition company, which enabled the growth of healthier chickens in a period much less than the usual long-term growth cycle. This was the beginning of the company’s involvement in the design and manufacture of data systems and products.  The Real Estate Multiple Listing system and the Voice Response System were developed at that time. Ron held the majority shares of Technitrend stock until late 1970, at which time he sold his interest to a major insurance company.  He continued as Chief Executive Officer until 1972. In 1972, Ron founded General Associates, Inc.  GA started operation representing other company’s products in the field of data communications.  GA acquired large quantities of surplus Teletype equipment from the Western Union company and refurbished the equipment and sold to major communications companies.  As a special service, GA provided special teleprinters for the HEARING IMPAIRED, which were used with acoustic couplers, so that hearing impaired people could communicate with the hearing. GA modified special teleprinters that would impregnate paper tape with the BRAILLE CODE, so that the VISUALLY IMPAIRED could read messages received over communication lines. In 1979, GENERAL ASSOCIATES, INC. began their relationship with the NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANGE.  They established operations at NYSE at 11 Wall Street, providing  special teletypewriter equipment needed to support the NYSE’s requirements for trading floor expansion.  They provided maintenance and service for trading floor operations.  They provided technical expertise in the area of hardware and software development.  Their speed, proficiency and technical skills in the field of financial data systems and services earned Ron great credibility with NYSE and the financial community. In 1983, Ron developed a system to provide up to the minute bond quotation and trade information for the members of the NYSE and other financial institutions.  It provided TRANSPARENCY and was operational for more than a quarter of a century. He successfully negotiated a contract with the NYSE to become a licensed financial vendor to disseminate quotes and trades of NYSE listed bonds. In 1985, he developed a video display system to support trading of US Government bonds, bills, notes and government agency products.  All primary financial institutions that trade Government issues through inter-market financial brokers use these systems. In the years to follow, GENERAL ASSOCIATES provided the video display systems and a variety of other products to the American Stock Exchange, Philadelphia Stock Exchange, New York Futures Exchange and New York Comex Exchange. Ron’s latest patent is for a device called The Ident-Eye-Fier.  It enables a visually impaired person the ability to identify a person or item when in physical range of that person or item. It utilizes a smartphone, camera glasses and an earpiece. Ron is a BUSINESS ANALYST – CONSULTANT – MENTOR – PROBLEM SOLVER. He helps Inventors and Entrepreneurs with intellectual property and creations to take them to market. Ron will analyze your business, challenges, ideas and provide you with answers and solutions for positive direction.
